I Can't Stop Worrying

I Can’t Stop Worrying
(Monchielle)

I can’t stop worrying
When does mothering stop
This question lives inside
People say let it go
But the pain won’t subside

I can’t stop worrying
Did I give it my best
Were they taught right from wrong
As they were growing up
I hear this like a song

I can’t stop worrying
Was it all a mistake
It’s hard to understand
While walking here below
The way a mother stands

I can’t stop worrying
Keeps ringing in my ears
I must fight this stronghold
Coming from day to day
The tears I can’t withhold

A Crude Visit

A Crude Visit
(Rubiyat)

Standing out front with shopping cart
Disrespecting mother not smart
Telling her that she is now dead
Words piercing deep breaking her heart

To him I’m just a “seed donor”
Yet he’s acting like a stoner
Throwing out abuse from his mouth
I’m feeling now like a mourner

Oh my heart’s been broken in two
Now what am I supposed to do
It’s so hard to explain this pain
I know the Lord will pull me through

Tougher skin needed on this bone
Although at times I feel alone
Trick of the enemy I know
I do know all hope is not gone

 I pray for strength along the way
That He would guide me day by day
Trying so hard to understand
Right now all I can do is pray

Searching Deeply

Searching Deeply
(Rubiyat)

Searching for answers here below
Trying hard not to make a show
Oh how lift questions flood the mind
Thoughts within continue to grow

Thinking within where things went wrong
Tunes playing in head like a song
Words repeating over again
Within you ponder Lord How Long

How long must a mother’s heart bleed
How long must she just intercede
Will there be relief for her pain
Oh when can she get what she need

Questions continue to ring out
The answers are out there no doubt
I know I must stand still and wait
In the meantime I will cry out

Why Cause This

Why Cause This
(Kyrielle Sonnet)

After I’ve raised you so many years
Your words have brought nothing but tears
The pain inside is felt so deep
Why do you cause my heart to weep

Battling a stronghold I see
This here burden just should not be
I’ve laid many nights counting sheep
Why do you cause my heart to weep

Disrespecting your parents now
Oh this the Lord will not allow
Prayers for you will no longer seep
Why do you cause my heart to weep

After I’ve raised you so many years
Why do you cause my heart to weep

Perplexities of Life



Things happen we don’t understand
We try to escape from it all
In the midst we look hard for peace
We give it our all not to fall

We try to escape from it all
Situations are hard to bear
Through it all we must take a stand
So we call on our friends for prayer

In the midst we look hard for peace
It’s so difficult to explain
Others tell you to “let it go”
So why do we even complain

We give it our all not to fall
Holding on with of our might
Moving forward we persevere
Hoping to make it through the night

One Little Thump

One Little Thump
(Ottava-Rima )

Lord can you please give them a little thump
They only need a reality check
It does not have to be a major bump
I'm only asking for a little peck
You certainly don't have to leave a bump
Just enough to cause them to be a wreck
They maybe they can see how others feel
We have feelings also and they are real

In Search of A Father's Love

In Search of a Father’s Love

Searching for a father’s love and a hand to hold.
Don’t know which way to go in a world so cold.
Searching for a father’s love in this world below.
Questions coming from all around are drowning within their soul.

Depression is sinking in  and telling them that you don’t have the time.
They only want to hear you speak -
to their troubled minds.
Please take the time to listen to your sons reaching out to you.
You just might have the solution to help them make it
during these perilous times.

A mother can only tell them how to be a man.
You are the main example to model out this plan.
They are growing up quickly and don’t know which direction to take.
They are seeking for your attention so they won’t make so many mistakes.

Please listen to them closely and read between the lines.
Take just one moment and give them a little bit  of your time.
Wrap your arms around them and show them that you care.
They are searching for your love.
So please don’t leave them in despair.



  *This one was written 6-2-2007 and seeing how Father's Day is Coming up..I would like to post it again...On behalf of father's everywhere...

You Just Can't Tell My Story

You Just Can't Tell My Story-
(Glosa)


You may write me down in history
With your bitter, twisted lies,
You may trod me in the very dirt
But still, like dust, I’ll rise
………….Maya Angelo

People look at me and
Feel they know my story
When I know myself that
They see only glory
Always on the outside
Solving a mystery
I just don’t understand
What is behind their plan
Is there protohistory
You may write me down in history

I don’t know what you’ll say
I will just have to pray
That my story will be told
In lines written so bold
Left for all the world to see
It will be big surprise
All written in the book
For all to take a look
You just can’t despise
With your bitter, twisted lies



Wanting to look your best
While sticking out your chest
Your fancy dress and all
Driving your fancy car
People know you from far
They don’t see who you hurt
But it is plain to see
Those things just should not be
Do what you can to flirt
You may trod me in the very dirt

But we all know the truth
Your motive stands out well
I discern right from wrong
I have heard that old song
You just can’t keep me down
I won’t wear a disguise
I’ll just hold my head high
Won’t let you see me cry
We may have to break ties
But still, like dust, I’ll rise

Suppressing The Pain

Suppressing The Pain
(Mid-Swap)

From deep within the heart cries out
A life of pain there is no doubt
You try your best to comprehend
Searching for comfort from a friend

Through journals you quietly vent
Not knowing what message you sent
Tears flowing you silently write
Living through pain night after night

Through all the pain you want to shout
From deep within the heart cries out

From time to time you want to cry
While you’re trying to reason why
Wanting others to feel your pain
As the tears roll like rushing rain

Looking for a little respect
Don’t always get what you expect
Others hurting so you reach out
Through all the pain you want to shout

Forever On Your Heart

Forever On Your Heart
(Doubledown Style 1)

You birth children into the world
Slowly you watch them grow
You teach them daily right from wrong
All the things they should know

From day one they are on your lap
You love them from the start
Your values you impart to them
They turn and break your heart

love them unconditionally
Oh how does your heart ache
The news you hear from day to day
Hearing of their mistakes

There is so much I can’t explain
So I sit in disbelief
Within is a terrible pain
Where can I find relief
