    Pain and hurt emotions had inspiried me
    at a ripe young age six or maybe three
    a very young soul with a powerful voice
    but because of my age not given the choice
    to express.

    why did my brother have the privledge to do
    all of the things I wanted to
    why I could'nt tell my mom how I felt
    and if I did my @ss would be delt......with

    How come my voice did'nt carry no weight
    I had so many opinionns and so much to say
    Then I had another idea I'll put it down on paper
    yeah! Thats what I did!

    So, one hurt and pitiful day
    I slipped my pain where mother could see
    as I lurked in the shadows of a room
    I waited patiently. I knew I,ll be doomed
    Yep! Moms found it. Her world had been crushed
    My whole being was pounding I had such a rush
    I was scared to death

    As I peaked with one eye from the shadows of the dark
    my moms head came up and stared where I was
    noooooo! she can't see me? but I knew she did
    a tear caressed her eye and my voice became loud and big

    She had felt my pain and she understood me
    perhaps as a child she too wanted to be free
    but then time had came to claim me
    and I to have grown up I must confess
    so all my writings I put to rest

    Until oneday I notice my daughter had this gift
    but she would'nt post it so it to would be felt
    She Is my inspiration to write again
    She brought me to destee's
    now my pen flows free, Sometimes

    I hope to encourage her to share herself
    you see shes not alone in the pain shes felt
    so I write and every thing I make her read
    lol! lol! lol! Laughing at myself, Yeah!
    Thats just like me! Always having some kooky idea
    But it almost worked. She did post one and quickly deleted it
    BACK TOO THE DRAWING BOARD FOR ME!
