POVERTY DEFINES TRUE WEALTH



don't know if human's will ever see every soul born, is right where it's meant to be For the rich to become the richest there has to be a place for the poorest The entire world is built up from the same level of dirt each soul is born without knowledge to cause hurt Humanity teaches us what a human's life is worth, by money and glory I am to believe all lives are priceless, every soul fit's to tell Earth's story The luckiest to be born, is that of a poor man he learn's the treasures, of everything he can Those born into all riches, have no true understanding of richness seeing us not as human's, but those living in poverty as an illness Love start's from the soul, and from there it is taught to grow the rich find another kind of love, one only brought with dough Love, trust, compassion and grace defining the difference in richest and wealth t'is the beggar off the street, who climbs the toughest road to earn his wealth He is the most blessed man, he is rewarded with the most valuable key for his wealth is humanly uncountable, for only God know's the value of he...

A bloody rose

Roses here, roses there Bloody roses, everywhere February brings them into our life While others hide a broken wife Young girls dream, of their shining white knight Well when do you think they will see, it's no where in sight Single men will try everything, to be romantic ask every young girl, they still haven't learnt it While romance will fill their heads I'm aware of the last lives, it brought to death The rose is not this, passionate flower But the very thing that causes, our human lives to go sour Nine months later, in the mid of November Young girls begin the, day they will always remember With the babies cry with its first breath of life There's a dad trying to work out, how to tell his wife A family is born, and a family is broken This is all because, of that bloody rose.

A BIRTHDAY KISS

As I woke up this morning instantly I begun mourning For I should be holding you this special day but I know that there is no possible way Wondering if you'd think that I would forget is just one more thing I am left to regret I pray that we will be re-united together again real soon till then I've blown you a birthday kiss I sent via the moon Overwhelmed I feel as if I love you even more today yes today is special after all it is your birthday But I couldn't forget you no if's, but's or maybe for you were blessed forever to be my baby You are now my six year old baby little girl and no one on Earth could ever love you as well Known now for eternity making this a very special day t'was only this day you became my daughter in every way

BABY

You were never seen by us, that privilege sadly was not for us an extravagance we were overwhelmed by, the thought of your embrace The entire twelve weeks you were a joy to have known, even 'without' being seen hearing about you're arrival, was a blessing at the time you were conceived For life hadn't been easy and we had all asked God, we even plea'd We wait upon the day, you will finally meet us having the honour to love and learn with you, saddly not for us It brakes my heart as you part, you had already embeded love into my heart Just knowing we will now...forever be kept apart God has other plans for your love that's so strong, blessing us from the start we continually pray, maybe he'll deside to let you stay around But the intense pain of tears and loss, are constantly falling all around just let it be known, we all desperately wanted you to become part of us We all will love you for eternity, you are now forever one of us, although it was only for a very slight second, it was better than never You are from this day on, embedded into our hearts forever... the impact you have left 'unborn young one'' my beloved grandchild.... "Angel" 2012

JESUS WITH MY FAITH I SEND THIS PLEA

My sorrow, is overwhelming my 'entire' soul for my jaded life, my dear "Nath" would be the next breath taken away Why does God continue taking those who play the most critical rolls my life will never come to see any hint of ease no way Heart heavy loss and pain all consuming me again God, I plea with you leave me those that I love for just a day It's become that time of the year my Nathan was taken with the swine's curse tears flood my entire being, why do you always insist I live entirely 'alone' Sorrow just in this year now at 'half point' has finally taken the 'full' toll I no longer see, any thing as my destiny that I shall 'exude' When, will it 'ever' be my turn, I wait..to become the next called to heaven am" I not worthy, of your abundant grace? You, seem to take 'everyone' I 'entrust' to a faraway land Nathan Reide' these are my tears containing, the 'most sorrow' I've ever let fall But, every memory of you and me, stop all of the pain just, another pain and despair to add to my life's endurance 'till' I long, for peace, joy and 'any' kind of life would do me, at this point of my life, I can not take anymore, seriously, lighten up on me! I fear in new friends, how long..before you conclude they too will end You bless me with a loving husband, mother, father, niece When do you think you might, 'let' me see them... this is my plea returning me back into church, I am in need off being blessed How 'come' you did take that away from me? faith in me stayed 'strong' you alone know the extent I need to move 'now' I have stayed still, and achieved what I think I was to become a poet I assume that was 'my reason' why you kept here With that now in full swing can you now spread my wings You are 'overpowering' my soul, and I now do as I am told patience never was my best strength, have I 'not' proved to you I'm completely at your mercy, you are the entity that drives the heart of me with all that, I need a break between all these sorrowful times, may I now move This is the deepest of despair, I have ever endured, please see me through I am more than 'positive' I WILL NOT make it through, another emotional trial Not to be left here, still bleeding the way I still am... darkness has taking more of my light I'm loosing all sight, of who is me My heart full of anguish and grief, depression takes her advantage, of the ease I have nothing worth finding joy or enlightenment anyway, she will have me I don't have any strength to even consider the thought of even trying this time in defending myself against her this time She only win's by default...

A child's plea


Dirty rotten scum to take the life of an innocent one torn away from my childhood but not yet thrown into adulthood you've given me a life of pain certain to only knowing, that never again, will the days be the same but I have found my new freedom here, within these mighty walls known as Gods kingdom

GOAL

I need to find a goal no longer to live life of a broken soul Living a lie...just to get by I've past all the pain And left with there stain a new life is now in reach This new world beside the beach no longer do I continuously pray Hidden for so long I don't know where I belong To start it all over is as hard as an alcoholic...to stay sober Where do I begin? how far do I jump in? This new life is rather very frightening I'm scared and taunted But no longer am I haunted the first steps I have begun taken To walk with my head held high and awaken I have finally found my soul Now Lord, I ask what is to be my goal?

WHISPERS FROM PICMINDO

As this world of ours closes down there lays a lonely young girl she whispers to the goblins from another town for the enchanted wall to open to join their realm filled with fairies, pixies the magic is the goblins way her night is filled with delightfully told magical stories where this young girl starts to forget, is tragic while back in this land, her family is in a panic for they should never have awoke in the dead of night to find their young Jezzabelles bed empty not one of them knew of this other realm not even Moneque, her twin sibling had any belief frantic as they walked the dark and cold streets with no sign of their baby girl they missed dearly police and searchers wernt far and wide but couldn't ponder where she was to hide for the fairies had begun to wash away her little memories for they had been longing for her to join them for many yealds as the sun arose with the morning light, where mums heart wails Jezzabelle had forgotten the life she knew forever now she'll live within the realm of Picmindo coming out only on the whispers of young lonely cries Moneque would be next life ending within this secret realm soon she would join her twin, found in the dark cries of night
