    I have walked away
    Conflicted within myself
    My vision blurry
    My mind colliding with my heart
    Spirit contesting my flesh
    Being pulled in various directions
    The confusion intensifies with each passing day
    My faith has faltered
    Doubt now runs through me
    Grief penetrating the very depths of my soul
    Anger coursing through my veins
    Each day a new battle
    I AM PARALYZED
    Will the suffering end
    Entangled in my wants
    Kept in bondage by my selfishness
    The course unknown to me
    Hate enslaves me
    Your presence I can no longer feel
    I cannot find my way back
    A part of me does not want to
    Grown a custom to the sorrow
    Cruelty has hardened me
    Disappointment has molded me
    My spirit screaming
    FEED ME!!
    Mingling with temptation
    Viewing things on an intellectual level
    Not allowing God to fit in the equation
    Miserable and stubborn
    Almost unable to stand
    Consumed with disbelief
    Emotions running rapid
    It ... has...begun
    The combat for my life
    The war for my soul.....

    Wow, this is good, it's some serious stuff. Your emotions are really overflowing in this piece. It's always better to have them out then in because at times the battle can be soo hard, but if you keep your Faith in God then things will always be better. Beautiful...

    :kiss1: Oh sistah how did I miss this:kiss1:
    I am going through the same thing baby:kiss1:
    You know it feels like happiness is simply a thought or a pseudo expression to avoid confrontation
    But somehow,somewhere there has to be an angel writing down every reality and every dream and all the possibilities of love:kiss1:
    Love for yourself and others loving you back because you deserve it:kiss1:
    I cannot tell you not to feel but while you are feeling, give a second of hope to a better tomorrow and a brighter way to reach fulfillment in life!:kiss1: :kiss1: :kiss1: :kiss1:
    I loved this poem, I related with this on so many levels sistah:kiss1:

    The emotion that was expressed in this piece, wow. When we're in the thick of things it's so hard to see your way out. But God is the way and you'll see your way clear once again. Deeply felt.
