life has lost you in its shuffle
you're exhausted from the struggle
longing for a your soul's oasis
you search for love in all the wrong places

fierce emotions swell and rage
during sleepless nights and lonely days
passionate eyes no longer glow
smothered in tears that endlessly flow

your mind is inundated with questions
but silent voices can’t engage in discussion
the uncertainty is intoxicating
drunken souls fear communicating

too emotional to ask yourself
why don't I have someone else
running from what the answer holds
you forsake the truths that liberates the soul

love begins with the courageous step
of looking deep within yourself
and dealing with all the things you find
defining yourself one day at a time

Overstand

so much summed up in the last stanza...

"love begins with the courageous step
of looking deep within yourself
and dealing with all the things you find
defining yourself one day at a time"

the last line is something deep in my heart...understanding that TODAY may be your last day...i've learned to appreciate the moment...to live for the minute...to understand that life isn't about the DRAMA that we place so much emphasis on.

defining yourself one day at a time.

THANKS for this PEACE, NittyGrit.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl

Thank you for the welcome. I have a question. I am a doctorate student in need of participants for my study. Is it allowable to post a request for study participants. If so, this is the post that would be uploaded:
