    who are your
    friends...
    the ones with fake
    smiles and open hands
    quick to leave
    your side when
    you're hopless and
    half dead...
    life is starting
    to becoming
    more crazy
    by the day...
    war on my mind
    everytime i get on
    my knees and pray...(but to who?)
    how can i stay
    strong...
    knowing when i step
    outside this door
    (gunshots)
    my life could be
    gone...
    still young
    venting through life
    i told
    holly i wont see
    25...
    and broke down
    when i pictured
    tears fallin from her
    eyes...
    i can't explain
    my pain...
    they can't explain
    cancer and aids
    i guess i'm not alone...
    blazing ganja, reminiscing
    mama sniffin white rows...
    until it was all
    gone...
    she was in a zone...
    dressing in her mini shirt
    leaving home...
    to fulfill her street name
    "diana the hoe"
    social workers
    couldn't understand her way
    of "putting food the table"...

    i'm her lost dream that died away
    from the love of sticking needles in her veins

    this is not a place
    to raise a child
    in...
    i can't read her
    a bedtime story
    without a gunshot
    firing...
    lookin in cionna's
    eyes...
    wondering will i still be
    there for her to run to...
    after her first day of
    school..
    how pretty her
    eyes...
    will i be there to
    hold her after her first
    fist fight...
    but they say
    only time
    can tell...
    is my destination
    a "heaven"
    or is it a "hell"
    tell me,
    is there a place...
    for an
    atheist...
    cause i need to
    know...
    what i'm bound
    for...
    they say love
    life...
    but how the ****
    you gonna love
    life...?
    my life is soaken in death's blood

    a pain like this...
    (Gunshot)

    You conveyed that hopless despair
    probably too well. Heavy realities
    for the soul to struggle with hopefully
    on its way to a heavenly path.
    God bless you, Poet!

    Weeping words!

    What do you say to weeping words?
    I want to say don't give up, the
    prayers of the Righteous availeth
    much...What do I say about your
    doubt and fear...I can tell you
    that a living miracle scribes right
    here. You say you don't know
    who you praying to...if you don't
    know him, trust me, he sure knows
    you! The fact that you even think
    to pray...tells me...He will make
    a better way! Atheist? I think
    not...God hears every gunshot...

    "I stand at the door and knock:
    if any man hear my voice, and
    open the door, I will come and
    sup(eat) with him and , he with
    me." Revelation3:20
    Lord teach us to listen. Help us
    to creatively wait in thy presence.
    May his voice find your's a listening
    ear!

    Blessings On ya House!:heart: One Love

    Painfully moving.

    So sad. Where does one get the strength to move forward?
