    I,m tired lord...

    My body is tired lord...

    My hipbones are hurting ...

    My knees are weak..

    Its a phisical pain no one sees...


    I have tried everything ...
    I have tried to walk in the word
    I have tried to walk in love...
    I let people in my life..
    I prayed i strived..
    I went to church ...
    i opend my heart for you to heal the hurt..
    I talked i listened ...
    i reached out to others....
    once i get up..
    someone is ready happy to smack me down...
    and you wont make my heart hard ..
    i know cause that is bot what you want..
    I lean on you and you give me youre undesckrybele love...

    but i,m tired lord...

    I confess my sins ...
    i profess my believes..
    i set of my goals and dreams in life...
    cause its not that i dont know what i want in my life..
    I knew it sinds the moment i saw light....

    i look in the mirror...
    though the people say i still am ..
    i,m not that beautifull i used to be...

    My body is tired lord...
    I,m tired of being Phisical alone...
    I,m tired of man forcing me to love..
    I.m tired of man giving me false hope..
    I,m of sisters being scared of me..
    I,m tired of sisters silently envy me...
    I,m tired of some famaly not knowing me...


    I,m tired lord...


    (to be continued ...
    store is closing)


    and i,m tired...

    Wow!
    Sister Liberty, This
    is a wonderful piece!
    Sometimes I get so
    tired mentally That
    I too want to just close
    the doors. Then just
    as I'm about to give
    up, The creator
    blesses me with
    a gift that most
    take for granted.
    So the Doors stay
    opened!
    I love this piece
    it touched me
    deeply!
