    Happiness gives me a number 5
    It`s hard to explain why
    All I can say is that
    I wish that number would multiply.

    Commitment gives me a 7
    That`s what I need to learn
    When abuse came into my life
    I became concerned

    Confusion gives me a 35
    Because of what I went through
    People who've used and abused me, told me,
    "Angela I try to be nice to you.”


    Depression gives me a 42
    Since granny passed away
    I couldn`t attend her funeral
    Supposedly because of my age (I was lied to).

    Anger gives me a 76
    Due to my horrible past
    When mom decided to trade
    Us for adoption, with her sorry ***.

    Hurt gives me an 83
    Cause what my mother pulled
    To not let daddy see his kids
    Her reasons were a lot of bull

    Distrust has made me numb
    That gives me 117
    The people who call themselves being a role model
    Tried to damage me.

    But despite of this
    I still maintain push on
    And be myself no matter what
    ‘Cause living my life is not wrong
    I want to be able to laugh
    As well as be able to cry
    Without being put down
    Or being criticized

    I hope that this is rational
    To begin with
    I’ve seen my share of ignoramuses
    But my pilot is still lit.

    Beautiful scribe, you live and that is what matters!

    And what flows from your knowledge creates more knowledge to lead the lost back to the promised land. Take abandoned children by the hand and tell them they are loved by the "Great I AM"...and all those sorry folks who tried to beat you into submission...."MISSION IMPOSSIBLE"....the Scribe lives to feed the lost...and in so doing , subtracts the lost in number!
    Digging you and what you bring to the table...bring more, don't even cut mine up!

    Blessings On Ya House!:cool:
