    yesterday i woke...it was a new begining
    i would go through the motions of the day...
    brush my hair, sweep away the sleep from my eyes...
    i s....l....o....w....l....y w....a....l....k....e....d a....w....a....y
    and looked in the mirror...
    mixed interpitations filled my mind...
    subtle beauti....
    cute but not all that..
    ugly...

    i wanted to change....
    complex, religious...
    be beautiful...
    my soul was traped behind this mask...
    lies infultrated the surface...
    bleeding...bleeding...bleeding...

    i sought comfort in the fact that i was..."cute"
    behind my glasses and scarf...
    perhaps one day my spirit would find relief
    in His arms...

    but what if he drops me?
    my heart would shatter
    till the peices would be to small to find again...
    my Lord would betray my trust....

    where does my soul lay tonite...
    i am under the moon...
    askin the sun and moon
    15,000 questions broken down
    into atoms to fit in there ears....

    scowls on my face....
    i was angry....
    Why have U forsaken me?
    i thought u would always be there....
    i loved Him so much....
    but whenever i tryed to live for Him...
    i would fall....

    maybe the answers lie in the world...
    perhaps....

    life is a never ending class...
    no one knows da when wheres and whys...
    we just have to learn from the daily traverses...
    learn or feel the sting repeatedly...

    one love

    heeeey story

    this was a very heartfelt piece,
    but alot of times we tend to question God, and why he allows some things to happen to us, but the truth is, God's plan is always the RIGHT plan...what we may want, or exspect to happen may NOT be what our souls really need. God knows the desires of our heart, but he also knows what's best for us...just trust that this situation will work out...and one day, you will be able to lQQk back and see why things fell like they did......
    Thanks sister
    Nita :heart:
