Why must I Die inside?

Why must I die inside?
I am crushed inside from past experiences that I have not let go of.
I have tried to erase all the things that are holding me back.
I have tried not to remember how many times I was raped and torn apart inside.
I cannot remember when I have really and truly laughed and felt it inside.
I am pressed down with so many issues and hurt from family and friends.
I have tried to live my life with humility and honestly and Love.
I reach out to people with sincere compassion.
I want to live
Why must I die inside?

Look for the Good

Look for the Good look deep if you must
Open up your heart and give me a fresh start
One little thing to trigger it off and you never see the good in me
Why do you torment me with one mistake? 
Look for the Good for Goodness sakes 

Look for the Good you might see the Good in you!

A MOTHER'S LOVE

A mother's love is so strong it has to come from above, for it takes a special 
Heart to do what she can do.

A mother's love is so deep when she cries out the whole world should weep.

A mother can go through so much pain and still remain sain.

A mother can bear children come home from the hospital, cook, wash, take 
Care of her child, kiss her husband and still wear a smile.

A mother has compassion and feeling that are so strong she can even tell 
When something is wrong.

A mother is a single mother who is struggling to carry both roles, we give 
You a "shout" out because that's a heavy load.

A mother is a grandmother who is still moving strong, she continues to love, 
Nurture, and care for the young.

A mother is so many special things that god created wrapped up into one.

So " remember" to show her love all the time, and tell her what a fine job she 
Has done!


Happy mother's day to all the mother's out there and may god continue to 
Bless you all!

The Business Plan

We started out with a Business Plan that was truly in DEMAND
Even though a lot of people did not really understand
We must keep our thought's as one and work together 
The both of us will not allow anyone to let our vison shatter
We are working hard from the bottom to the top 
And that's all we can SAY ......
Because we  know we will reach there and apperiate our GREAT reward one day

A Mothers Silent Cry

As I stood there in silence remembering the things that use to be.  I tried to erase 
the 
memories hoping this would set me free.  the pain it caused the sleepless 
nights I 
embraced and the endless tears on my face as I felt so much disgrace.
Time went by Day by Day Night by Night as I begin to lose sight, the strain on my 
mind 
with all the waisted time. I LISTENED FOR MY SCREAMS FROM ALL THE BAD 
DREAMS.
But I was not releived.
The emptiness as I wanted to die, and all I received was a mothers silent cry.

FATHER'S ARE SPECIAL PEOPLE TOO

Father's are special too little understood
Because we expect them to show emotions, " I know some women think they should.

"But if we could look into their hearts, then we could really see.

They are loving sentimental and as soft as they could be.

They strive to do their very best to make their family proud of them and bring them 
happiness.

And like our heavenly father they are a guardian and a guide.

Someone you can count on and always want to be by your side.

He's also a Dad that holds you when you cry, scolds you when you break the rules. and 
shines with pride when you suceed.

Continues to have faith in you when you think you have failed.

He even wants to catch you before you fall, "But instead he picks you up.

Brushes you off and let's you try again, and they are so wonderful they can even be your 
friend.

"So if you are a father "remember" you are truly blessed because it was God who created 
you and he don't make no mess! 

Happy Father's Day

MY WORDS ARE CHANGING WITH AGE

I use to say I hear you
Now I say "What you say?
I use to say What's going on? 
Now I say I Remember
I use to hear you LOUD and CLEAR
Now I can barley hear you at all
I use to say tha'ts what WE use to say
Now I ask the question is that what we use to SAY?

Holding on to yesterday with no hope for tomorrow

Yesterday some things happened that were not so pleasant to talk about. My 
dreams were 
shattered as if I had never dreamed, my children grew up so fast and the 
laughter became 
silent.

My loved ones died, I cried, and cried out without hope, friends used and 
deceived me 
one by one. struggling to pay rent barely making ends meet.

Never looking ahead wrapped up in my past, wondering how long this madness 
would last. 
stuck in a time zone feeling lost and all alone, Knowing somehow if I did'nt wake 
up I 
would soon be gone.

Not trying to make any changes, blaming everyone in sight, not moving ahead 
walking 
around feeling as though I were dead.

I was holding on to yesterday with no hope for tomorrow, bringing my own self 
down in 
the valley drowning in my own sorrows.

So now when I glance back at yesterday I will always remember, if I continue to 
hold on 
to yesterday, I will have no hope for tomorrow.

If I could empty out my mind one day

If I could empty out my mind I would put all the garbage in the trash.
I would take out all the mistakes analize them to see how much I have learned.
I would not take out the pain and suffering because it has given me strength and 
courage.
I would remove all my family and friends and, put Jesus in front of them.
If I could empty out my mind one day I might see a brighter future.
If I could only stop dwelling on my past I could empty out my mind one day.

He said she said.......

He said she said.....
I have heard it all and some more sometimes it makes me want to walk out he 
door.  Why do you make me feel this way? telling me what all the people say.
He said she said every time I turn around don't you know this is bringing me 
down.
Why can't it be about you and I? stop bringing everyone in our relationship this 
makes me want to cry. if he said she said is the way it has to be, how in the world 
do you think you can make it with me?
