    cooped up in a bed
    throbs goin through my head
    whispers behind my back
    never am i relaxed
    not captivated, no
    not tryin' to give a show
    sick by a purpose
    no one deserves this!

    tests come to make me strong
    somehow i feel so wrong
    pain comes to overwhelm
    i'm trapped inside of this rhelm
    please some release me!
    just give me inner peace!
    take away this hurt i have
    take from me before i have
    to beg you for mercy
    from this indiscrepancy
    i can't even take this
    my mind is a matrix
    swirlin' 'round so free
    why oh God!! Why Me!!!???
    what on earth did i do?
    to make you seem so cruel?

    the Bible tells me you're just
    i have to accept it, i must
    don't know how long this will last
    don't know how long i can last
    cuz Lord i'm gettin' so tired
    i'm over painfully tired
    it's 3 in the morning
    my heart seems to mourn me
    i can't hardly take this
    surprised i have made it
    this far as an inspiration
    don't know how i have inspiration
    it's a trait that i've been told of
    and i should thank you Lord above
    for giving me something to base my
    life on when i need to cry
    at times i may cringe at your name
    but Job endured all of his pain
    and in the end he had a reward
    and i pray mine is heaven's reward

    now i am blessed with another chance
    to carry a child into earth's advance
    i CRY OUT to you to let it stay
    inside my womb until its birth day
    keep it healthy and safe from harm
    keep it from the devil's alarm
    i know i'll probably pass before age 5
    but i'd rather give my life, than his or her's tonight
    so this is my prayer unto you oh God!
    i know i've cried out many times oh God!
    but this time the prayer is not for me
    when my eyes close protect my family
    give my husband courage to carry on
    make him stronger to endure on his own
    let my child grow to be beautiful
    Let the child possess your love so full...
    and one day let them join me
    to ride in this heavenly glory
    this is all i ask of you oh God!
    just help them when my love is gone...

    This was truly wonder-full.

    FAITH IS A VERY STRONG THING.

    Abrahams wife, Sarai, was barren until her late years, but Abrams faith permitted her 2 conceive, & out of that faith Israel was born.

    Hold strong 2 your faith, sister.

    crying for you and your pain. but the faith you show and the strength the Lord can provide in our time of need. I hate when people say everything happens for a reason, but the longer I experience life and obstacles and such the truer it seems.
