    I may crack but I won't crumble.
    I may trip , but I won't stumble.
    I will bow and try and stay humble.
    I may whisper, but I refuse to mumble.

    Hard luck lives are meant for sharing
    Tough lived lives are always daring
    Great big hearts are built for sharing
    And great big eyes are meant for staring

    Love is meant to be an action word
    Something seen and not just heard
    Arms are meant to embrace and be
    embraced.
    And memories cannot be erased.

    I may crack, but I won't crumble.
    I may trip , but I won't stumble.
    I will bow and try and stay humble.
    I may whisper, but I refuse to mumble.

    Best laid plans have gone astray.
    So you plan another day.
    Sometimes lovers go away.
    That doesn't mean they are gone
    to stay.

    Pick your *** up off the floor
    And for God's sake your soul
    Don't ignore...
    Time alone ,doesn't mean you
    are lonely.
    Remember 'YOU' are your own
    one and only!

    So...I may crack, but I won't crumble
    I may trip, but I won't stumble.
    I will bow and try and stay humble.
    I may whisper, but I refuse to mumble.

    SHAZ AND REDLADY THANKS FOR READING!

    I wrote this , soon as I got up this morning. And as you know, much of the time I am dealing with one struggle or another, and my poetry is my therapy, I live it and breathe it...so if it touched you enough to make you respond...I thank God, that I know someone is out there feeling the same thing and hopefully we also know that "God will bring us through!" No...I may crack , but I won't crumble!
    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!

    Bravo!

    This should be posted regularly just to remind us that we all need to stand up--that we all need to know that we CAN do it--that nothing is easy--and that we don't have to crumble--inspirational--Amun-Ra
