Below are the all-time best Cathy Holmes poems as chosen by PoetrySoup members
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?
What? Do you do when you feel life pressures crashing down on you?
When? All your friends take the back seat, and your Heart wants to explode.
Where? Is your Mind from the beginning until the end?
During all this calamity do you feel like
What? When? Where?
Do You Go?
WHEN I SAY WHAT I THINK IT COMES OUT LIKE THIS.
WE'LL it's the truth and I'm really not trying to hurt them on purpose.
They should be able to handle the truth.
I'm just going to say it ,I can't worry about how they take it.
WHEN I THINK WHAT I SAY IT COMES OUT LIKE THIS.
Will it hurt their feeling?
Will they be able to handle the truth in Love?
Is the timing right?
WHY can't I say what I THINK ?
if you don't THINK what you say you may say the wrong thing
or you could get caught up in something you could have avoided
so try to be "SLOW to "SPEAK and QUICK to "HEAR.
make sure you know what you heard and THINK before you answer to IT!
The Brightness in her eyes to my "suprise" brought out the Day Light. Her walk
straight, her smile was bright, just like the Day Light.
She greeted people gracefully with such compassion and Love.
Her composure was not Dark it was just like the Day Light. Both Day and Night,
when she was not in sight, you visioned her just like the Day Light.
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!
It is a wonderful feeling when we come together in love and fellowship.
psalm 133:1 says Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethern to dwell together in
It is also better to give than to receive, that's why this is such a special day.
we give to you our fellowship and love, always remembering that to God be the glory in all
that we do.
Fellwowship and love lift's the spirit and makes the heart glad.
In our giving we want to show how special you are, and the love we have for you.
giving is a gift and let us not forget the greatest gift of all.
John 3;16 for God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever
beleiveth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
we give our fellowship and love to you!
Yesterday some things happened that were not so pleasant to talk about. My
shattered as if I had never dreamed, my children grew up so fast and the
My loved ones died, I cried, and cried out without hope, friends used and
one by one. struggling to pay rent barely making ends meet.
Never looking ahead wrapped up in my past, wondering how long this madness
stuck in a time zone feeling lost and all alone, Knowing somehow if I did'nt wake
would soon be gone.
Not trying to make any changes, blaming everyone in sight, not moving ahead
around feeling as though I were dead.
I was holding on to yesterday with no hope for tomorrow, bringing my own self
the valley drowning in my own sorrows.
So now when I glance back at yesterday I will always remember, if I continue to
to yesterday, I will have no hope for tomorrow.
As I stood there in silence remembering the things that use to be. I tried to erase
memories hoping this would set me free. the pain it caused the sleepless
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
with all the waisted time. I LISTENED FOR MY SCREAMS FROM ALL THE BAD
But I was not releived.
The emptiness as I wanted to die, and all I received was a mothers silent cry.
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
Happy mother's day to all the mother's out there and may god continue to
Bless you all!
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
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.
