    Sometimes I feel like giving up
    Turning my back on all I know
    Just…..
    Running a million miles
    Far past
    The pain….and
    The emptiness
    Past my shadow
    To hide from the hurt
    In my soul

    As the tears run

    Tearing my spirit to pieces
    For my all just isn’t that good
    Just feel like giving up

    Been up and down
    This road to long

    Feeling like I am all
    Alone
    So far, out in space
    Losing my way
    For my best
    Just don’t seem
    Good enough
    As the hurt bleeds
    The clouds cover me
    And my being screams
    Seems that my
    Best just isn’t good enough
    Lost in the wild
    Crying until the last tear falls

    Then I look to the heavens

    One more step
    One more prayer
    One more chance
    Trusting His plan

    In spite of everything
    I may fall short of being worthy
    But His love holds me
    No, matter the pain
    No, matter the chore

    But this time
    ....I dont know
    Which way to turn
    But in spite of everything

    Looking to the heavens

    One more step
    One more prayer
    One more chance
    Trusting His plan

    Wow...
    Wouldn't it be a great thing, if we could run a million miles and really leave everything we're running from behind? ...but who travels without baggage? it serve a great purpose to stand firm...and drop all unhealthy baggage by the side of the road.
    awesome piece...yet such words, can only be spoken from the heart...a very tender heart.

    Mz Blk Angel...

    I declare...you're getting better and better. Can't wait for the book to come out.

    This piece is very nice. I can tell that you write in the moment...whether the moment of remembering a painful time or whether the pain near and dear at this very moment.

    :thanks: for sharing with us...the Fam. You never who's going through the same and is not sharing with us all.
