    True story...walking home from school with three other firstgrade girls..a pair of four of which two were my enemies among friends...led me behind a CHURCH and beat me...didn't know why...the fourth girl stood as a witness and didn't help defend me...she simply asked me why didn't I help defend myself...didn't know why I turned the other cheek...but months roll by...mom decides one afternoon to give me a ride home from school...the sun was very hot...and walking were my two enemies among friends...hadn't seen them in a while must have been hiding in their shame of sin...told my mom to pull over...to offer a ride to my enemies among friends...she knew not of this...as they thankfully hopped in...their faces were filled with fear...sitting erect yet I'm cool, calm, and collect as a cucumber...finally they reach their stop...without hesitating they hopped out...my mom in the driving seat...me still in the passenger seat...I finally reveal to her...those were my two enemies among friends...she was quite angry and couldn't comprehend...it wasn't until years later that I understood why Jesus said,"love your enemies"...making friends among your enemies brings peace and prosperity....you will never have to worry about them again...but an enemy among friends will always be your enemy...learn how to make friends among your enemies...it can turn out to be quite helpful in the end...

    Black men go
    abroad in the military
    like marines far from
    their sweethearts

    cast away on a day
    with Valentines to
    lovers quarrel amidst
    war a form of art

    they call me the
    queen of hearts

    because I'm rich with
    love and understanding
    yet poor in the things
    that won't really matter
    once I leave the
    planet earth

    been dedicated since
    birth to say what I feel
    when life gets real at
    multiple times of its worst

    no need to rehearse
    this thought flow process
    unfolds verse by verse

    simply hold
    my hand and understand
    why angels have brought me
    here for what it's worth

    they call me the
    queen of hearts

    lay your head
    on my heart
    and listen

    spreading God's love
    from above with cheer
    is my infinite passion
    leading and guiding me
    on different missions

    there's no need for repetition
    in stating my position

    they call me
    the queen of hearts

    come fly away
    with me to ectasy
    the world we're living in
    is tearing our people apart

    ever since the days
    of Abe and his
    Emancipation Proclamation
    now more than four
    scores ago today

    don't even start

    brother if you ever
    feel the need to cry
    come lie here on my shoulder

    they call me
    the queen of hearts

    Poetic this was absolutely beautiful and heartfelt. You have such a quiet strength, dignity, wisdom and love laced into your words. I since a very strong spirit lies beneath these words. You are able to be firm without cruelty, and a very gentle and genuine heart seems to also lie within. Peace.

    this whole ordeal never manifested itself
    until I reached an age where I could reasonably
    understand the presence of Satanic forces

    keep writing girl hope you're feeling better

    peace
