    .....

    baby, it's not my job or my boss
    i replied
    she responded
    "well is it the close friend you've just lost?"
    no baby
    "honey talk to me please,
    come outside and walk with me."
    thanx baby but i......
    "is it your family, or your "so-called" best friend.
    i know they hurt you.
    i want to know what's wrong.
    is it us??"

    *course of silence*

    -sitting by me on the floor of our room she then stretches her body to lie down across me-

    "i canceled our plans for today. we can go out tomorrow"

    *silence*

    "would you please tell me why you are being this way?"

    -opening my heart to hers i start to speak-

    one day i'll reach my peak of understanding people, things and places. You know- life

    "i know jehiah. But first understand you and your life. good night baby wish i could stay."

    -kissing me on my head i open my eyes as she leaves the room and closes the door, i bow and then pray.....-


    jehiah.

    sweet lil brother of myne....

    this piece made me... feel.

    i can relate to the feeling of needing to
    meditate, reflect & pray. & even though
    the people around us sometimes don't
    understand or feel shut out, remember
    you don't always have to have something
    to say...

    InfiniteLove.

    1 moral is that we await a peace, an answer, etc.... that only God is able to provide.

    even "she" understands and knows, but she allows him time with God that he needs for self and it's all peace afterwards..

    thanx for the read my peeps...

    beautiful, Jehiah!

    there is nothing like a mate who 'knows'.

    Thank you for giving us a view into the (inner)sanctum of YOUR understanding. So refreshing to see young people knowing and sharing the knowledge!
