    I am hurting and I don't know what to
    I want it to all go away
    I want to enjoy life again
    smile when I wake up in the morning
    Laugh at jokes
    Enjoy each day
    whether it is rain, sleet, snow, cloudy or sunshine
    I want to embrace it all
    But I am hurting and I can't seem to let it go

    I asked the main upstairs to not let me hurt anymore
    To take the pain away
    At least ease it so I could breathe
    I don't think he listening cause I am still hurting

    I want things to be normal again
    No vicious cylce of pain and deciet
    Just a little struggle here and there
    This is hard
    I feel like I am the one of the cross
    Being spat at, laughed at, and hammered over and over again
    But I am in no shape or form strong as he
    I am crumbling I can no longer take the hurt and pain

    I want to be free
    free to enjoy life without the hurt
    Why me
    Have I done so much wrong that I will hurt forever
    Why me
    I have given of myself so freely
    when others were in need
    not expecting anything in return
    Why my
    Why am I the one hurting
    I am hurting and I don't want to

    How long will I endure this hurt
    Life is to be precious and wonderful
    Not without a little pain and suffering I know
    But this hurt is knawing at my very soul
    the depths of my very being
    It hurts with every breath I take

    I want to release it but it won't let go
    It is holding on for dear life
    My life
    why me
    why me
    why not he
    why not she
    why me
    I am hurting and I don't want to

    Release me
    Open up your heart
    and
    release me
    Please release me
    I am begging you to please release me
    You don't want me so why not release me
    Please
    Please
    I am hurting and I don't want to

    All who read this will feel the ache that you so strongly conveyed. It does seem that in life one big problem never enters your life alone. But life does get better, slowly yes, but it does. Have faith. Emotive flow.

    You have us. Your writings are so deep and heart felt. Prayers do not go unheard. You can give of yourself and find more pain. If one gives they can find some close ( dear to the heart ) and some not so close will take them for granted. Do not take it serious, because they do not understand. But do not keep putting one's self in the hands of those who do not care about ( how they hurt you or how you feel ) your happiness. The result ( those same one's you keep trusting, keep bring you the same result ) you know, change the procedure. Only you understand, why you feel and can't find peace. But you have control of how you gain it. Sucking the very life out of a guiding light. Tell satan :getout:

    Thank you all for your love and support.
    This road to freedom has been hard
    I am on the right path though I know
    I have come into a family filled with love and support
    Even though there is no face or voice with the words (I am going to work on that)
    Thank you again and again :thanks:
    I say hats off to you all :grouphug:
