    At it's best, perhaps someone can see themselves between the lines, at it's worst, someone will miss what needs to be seen and eleviated. Yes, something to think about for sure. You're quite welcome.

    don't let go...

    the burdensome weight of life is overwhelming.

    the darkness...

    creepy shadows
    effecting my "way to go" stance
    didn't have a chance...to
    get with you
    don't know what to do

    the light is dimming

    the void of nothingness
    is...endless
    i confess

    i'm disappointed in ME

    HELP ME...to overcome my iniquities
    to be the man i am supposed to be

    FREE ME

    from the sullen grasp of my sorrows
    that tomorrow
    might find me
    RELAXING
    in the hollow of
    HIS LOVE



    ALWAYS NICE TO READ YOU.

    Life may take an unexpected twist
    But why did I fail to see
    All the other possible exits out of this maze
    that this life has presented to me

    Now I may look at other possible answers
    as to why things are all askew
    I pull out a veil to cover the real reasons
    You know, just like I always do

    Let me at this time really listen
    to what God has to say
    for when I don't know which way to turn
    God will most certainly lead the way...

    Brother baller, I thank you for that wonderful flowback poet. Always nice to read you as well. :)

    I really love the quality of this flow, especially these lines in green, which I have lived and breathed personally. And yes...I constantly am talking to God, many many times throughout my day.

    Great write.

    That highway can lead to a brighter place if we allow it to, thanks Admin Rich.
    We never can talk to God too much, and thank goodness for that. Thank you sweetapplepie.

    Hello Watz...

    So kindheartedly expressed... you are truly a poetic messenger.

    Whenever I notice you dropped something I click on it and settle in
    because I know I'm going to enjoyed from start to finish. Thank you!
