I had written about my heavy heart and how you
Had become such a big part.
So with these thoughts going thru my head
I will lay my fears to rest.
There is so much beauty on this site, that it
Fills my heart with strength and might.
There are so many of us going thru aches and pains
That to abandon you would be a crying shame.
There is so much hope in the words of all poets
And insights never seen or touched before
Because we are the ones who open the doors.
There are times that we want our poetry to
Find us fortune and fame, but we know that
Our lives will not be the same.
We will no longer write from the heart or be able
To shed a tear and to wipe away others fears
I found that my search for truth lies within, and if we
Don’t pursue it; it will be a crying sin.
HOPE, LOVE, FAITH
To my co poets – this is in response to “I lay down my pen”
Out of the fires of hell (7/14/12)
I have pulled myself up out of the fires of hell Where pain, sorrow, depression, lost faith do dwell. I recall as I closed my eyes all I could see Was the devil staring back at me.
His eyes were bloodshot red – cause on my fears he had fed. The hideous laugh bouncing around in my head I thought for sure that I was dead.
They pulled me down when I was weak And with their strength I could not compete. All four of them were working to keep me down When I saw HIS LIGHT, HIS EYES, HIS CROWN It was the LORD beckoning me to him And seeing this – I knew I’d win.
His hand came down and I grabbed it and held on tight Closed my eyes and prayed with all my might. I rose out of those flames completely intact And I knew there would be no turning back.
The devil like the lion would wait for its prey And thought with certainties he would get his way But my LORD had something to say.
You had caught me at a time of weakness and despair And thought that my life with you I’d share But my inner spirit saw the guiding light And I fought with all my might.
The LORD had heard my plea, and responded And I rose out of the fires with a smile on my face
I had gotten this from a friend, and the author is unknown But it is so beautiful I decided to post it for others to read. There was no title so I added my own title.
Why do women cry
Why are you crying? A young boy asked his mom. Because I am a woman, she told him. I don’t understand, he said. His mom just hugged him and said: And you never will, but that’s okay.
Later the little boy asked his father, Why does mom seem to cry for no reason? All women cry for no reason. Was all his dad could say.
The little boy grew up and became a man, Still wondering why women cry. Finally, he went on his knees and asked god: GOD*** why do women cry so easily? And god answered…
When I made women, I decided she had to be special. I made her shoulders strong enough to carry The weight of the world, Yet her arms gentle enough to give comfort! I gave her the inner strength to endure childbirth And the rejection that many times will come even from her own children!
I gave her a hardness that allows her to keep going And take care of her family and friends, Even when everyone else gives up, through Sickness and fatigue, without complaint!
I gave her sensitivity to love her children Under any and all circumstances, even when her child has hurt her badly! She has the very special power to make a Childs Boo-boo feel better and to quell a teenagers Anxieties and fears.
I gave her the strength to care for her husband, Despite faults, and I fashioned her from his rib To protect her heart! I gave her the wisdom to know that a good husband Never hurts his wife but sometimes tests her strengths and her resolve to stand beside him unfalteringly!
Son, for all of this hard work… I also gave her a tear to shed. It is hers to use whenever needed and Is her only weakness!
When you see her cry, Tell her how much you love her And all she does for everyone. And even though she may still cry, You will have made her heart feel good.
She is special! ! !
