    My heart is hurting
    today.....
    baring weight of
    lead -- a thousand pounds
    pulling me
    under water
    breathing - lest I drown
    everything is
    fuzzy....no logic
    can be found
    within the gates
    that secure
    my soul

    My heart is hurting
    today...
    peace is not an option
    my weary mind is
    tired -- unrest
    pain killed
    tears and my eyes
    are blood-shot
    red
    red
    red
    red
    white
    rolled back inside
    the recesses
    of my mind
    and I can't see
    my thoughts
    clearly...
    agony of life
    is calling out
    my name
    in many languages
    foreign and
    some unknown

    My heart is hurting
    today...
    so much that
    my body is
    numb - dressed
    in a blue robe
    Miss Ery
    came to visit
    stayed quite a while
    spoke and
    kept me company
    and we talked
    nothin' but
    Negativity

    My heart is hurting
    today....
    my ears can't hear
    friends who pray
    but I listen to
    voices provoking
    me to make
    decisions --
    fighting
    self....less...self...less
    confused so
    much that
    depression
    seen visions
    of suicide
    etched N2
    wrists that
    never really bled

    My heart is hurting
    today ~ and
    with a murmured
    voice and the last
    breath I breathe
    I'm asking
    God to make a way
    for me~~

    and He WILL...

    make a way...even when you think there is NO WAY. I am a witness to that. Even with my current 'issues' he's still making a way for me. Patience is a Virtue and faith is forever present in my heart.

    Praying peace and strength for you sis!

    be still thy painfilled heart...

    rest your weary soul
    and let peace wash over your countenance
    in GOD, there is love
    and hope
    and blessings
    through the understanding that
    HE knows all
    forgives all
    loves all
    HIS compassion is abundant
    HIS generosity knows no limit
    rest in HIM
    and know peace.

    Sista Afri~

    How gracious of you. Thank you for your words, they do remind me that HE can and will make a way!

    ...Reminds me of that ol' church song
    "Since I Laid My Burdens Down"

    ....now, let me see if I can sing it ....!

    Thanks sista!!

    One :heart:
