    the breath of life
    resurrection
    ended sleep-walking
    fall walls collapsin
    alive in a coffin
    deep thoughts
    odds n ends
    forgiven for sins
    wholeheartedly listen
    to the voice that's within
    schizophrenically talking
    two extremes
    can't decide
    malfunction'd from pain
    and this livin to die
    what can I do
    but just scream out and
    cry
    everhthing i knew to be tru
    ended up bein
    liez
    so I must die
    and then rise
    be quiet to speak
    take a few steps
    to awaken from sleep
    my innocence
    this part I keep
    yet
    patch'd up from the battle
    and cuts that r deep
    conciously thinkin of
    dreams to pursue
    actively claiming
    a day that is
    due

    Hey Sis
    Very heartfelt peice.
    We all have to learn how to keep
    our mind opens to what surrounds US
    and even through all the craziness
    we manage, to make it, and each day
    is blessing to finish old business
    or to start new ones. Just staying focus
    so we can get it right. Much love
    Keep bringing it

    Peace~N~Love

    I feel you Miss Lady! I've had one too many of these days, weeks, months...but give yourself a moment to lose it and then get it back together. Sometimes we need that time. Things always seem worse before the dawn! Keep your head up sistah!

    When everything you know to be true, isn't, that's enough to send your mind spinning. But that's also the time when it's most important to pay attention to what's most important. Well posed piece poetess.
