    I’m cursed by all these sleepless nights.
    Got too much pride to let out one of my painful cries.
    Came up with my own rule by which to abide.
    Not knowing that the thoughts that reside, would slowly be the cause of my demise.
    You couldn’t know my troubles.
    All I know is struggle.
    If you saw things the way I see them, your stress would double.
    Sometimes I wonder how it is I mentally survive.
    Maybe somewhere deep inside I have a constant drive.
    It must be what’s inside of me that keeps me going on.
    I knew the love once in my heart couldn’t stay gone.
    So many times I think I got it.
    But whenever I figure it out, I always find some bull****.
    Some day to finally be at peace, now it seems crazy.
    Trying to see through thick fogs that make my vision hazy.
    I went the wrong route, I turned around and learned a lesson.
    I want all my pain gone,
    But first, Lord, I could use a blessing.

    There’s a season in our lives, in which things can get a little easy.
    There’s a season in your life when it’s so hard that you get a little queasy.
    Just to know love when it’s in sight.
    To embrace love, I think I might.
    All dues to the one above, there’s no question.
    But I really do need a blessing.

    I am confessing
    for this blessing
    that my king so direly needs
    this prayer please heed
    send him peace for travelin roads
    give him strength for weary loads
    grant him serenity
    prosperity
    make his happiness priority
    when trials are long
    give him girth to be strong
    through tribulations
    and complications
    even those of his own creation
    guide and grant this ernest plea
    my brotha needs stability
    for his sanity
    his humanity
    is contesting
    this need for ya blessing
    father hear the call
    catch his fall
    send your security for his poetic purity
    and when he feels not able
    to be stable
    from a tiring burden that he has to bear
    let him no that u care
    give him peaceful resting
    and father please
    grant him his blessing

    loved this one Virgil I feel u for real :)

    To triniti424, that piece you wrote in your reply was great. That's one of the nicest things anyone has done for me on a poetry board, let alone ever. You are a very thoughtful woman, and I appreciate what you wrote immensely.

    Virgil thanks for sharing.

    " Came up with my own rule by which to abide. "

    Let go and trust. Without faith. What can a man achieve.
    Tomorrow isn't promised. Only death is sure.

    " Not knowing that the thoughts that reside, would slowly be the cause of my demise. "

    See you have an idea that your fog is related to the rose colored glasses.

    " You couldn’t know my troubles.
    All I know is struggle. "

    Your correct. But Since you lived another day. It is an opportunity to make a difference. What is your plan? Now I lay me down to sleep. I pray the lord my soul to keep. If I should die before I wake. I pray the lord my soul to take. Amen.

    So as you travel. Didn't you know you were being carried. Look again. Those aren't your foot prints in the sand.

    " If you saw things the way I see them, your stress would double. "

    We all get stessed. But I have had blessings come in my waking hour. In my sleeping hours. At the last minute. I have and never loose my faith in GOD. He is always with us. Give it up, your yoke you bear. Guilt is just as heavy.

    " Sometimes I wonder how it is I mentally survive."

    Well were glad you did. Close your eyes. Meditate. Be quiet. Listen to the noise of silence. Can you feel the change coming over you. When you open your eyes again. Peace be still.

    " Maybe somewhere deep inside I have a constant drive."
    "It must be what’s inside of me that keeps me going on. "

    Your not finished here yet. He is not finished with you.

    " I knew the love once in my heart couldn’t stay gone.
    So many times I think I got it. "

    Love may take a back seat from time to time. Don't look for it. It sneaks in and takes over when you least expects it.
