    I love hearing you speak in the vernacular, my dear. This is a wonderful form you've adopted. Very soulful, thoughtful ~ sending the best message out to us all.

    Thank you,

    Thank You All !!! :heart:

    I was surprised to receive this flow. Wasn't looking for it. Sorta kinda shocked that it presented itself. It was so easy. Truly a *natural* flow. Thank you for the encouragement!

    :)

    Sweet Destee

    we often lend a helping hand
    out to those who most need it

    but if they reject the hand
    we offer, then what are we
    supposed to do for them except
    pray all day everyday

    itz gonna be alright

    Wow!

    Sometimes I read a poem and it feels like you know my story!
    The details may be somewhat different and some of the parts not as gory! But It is still the same story!
    Sometimes I go to a read just for the title and leave that page changed and rearranged forever, I just clicked the mouse three
    pages over , to find an answer that I traveled 500 miles to find.
    Thank you Poets for sometime readin my mind!
    Sometimes there is nothing you can do but PRAY!

    BLESSINGS ON YA HOUSE!:peace: :peace:
