    She looks at me with a look of dismay
    Just because her life isnt going the way
    She expects it to
    because the man she thought she knew
    she never knew at all
    Now its her life that has taken the fall
    the fall that she placed on herself
    thinking she would never break down
    and the world
    the world would never be placed on her shoulders
    For what is the reason for life
    if everything always seems to go right
    for that is something i had to learn
    for if i didnt in hell i would burn
    To not know God is to
    not know self
    and if you lack all of that what do you have left
    Looking in the mirror shes looking back at me
    Wishing she could only understand the woman she sees.
    She looks at me with dismay
    Begging the lord forgiveness
    Only to try and live to see another day

    the only wrong in falling..is not getting back up..

    we should not judge others, yet we are our own harshest critics..

    reflective peace..
