    Id given hope and depression had set in
    I wore it like winter coat, it became my good friend
    See my girl waked out saying it for the best
    She said she was lost, but I had GPS
    Then my job faded
    And I was not sure how I was going to make it
    Was not what I asked for but I had to take it
    I reached out for help from Family and Friends
    I soon realized that it’s in none of them I could depend
    So I searched the Internet on Ways to end my Life
    Followed the instructions to the letter and check it twice
    I tried pure Nicotine and the stuff they use to kill rats
    I used MAX Decon, even 3oz will kill a bat
    I tried and tried and again I tried
    I kept upping the dosage I surely should have died
    But God was not done with me yet
    He had a better plan and my death He was not going to let
    So with this Second Chance I use my voice
    Ill spread His word, His truth as my Choice
    For surely she save me from that toe tag
    Save this shell from being fitted for that Corners BAG
    So I have a Testimony to Tell
    How in my Darkest Hour God Save me From Hell
    See some hit the Bottom and that’s where they stay
    They get comfortable and that’s where they lay
    They learn to adjust, live and let there kids play
    I spent enough time at the Bottom and it was rough
    But my mind was made up and enough was enough
    So Iive each day like it is a gift
    And I use my words in search for Souls to Lift.

    when we get
    a first second or third chance
    to come up from the bottom
    where no true soul can lay forever
    we rise more beautiful than ever
    knowing we have been touched
    by God's hand and praise is due
    our testimony and true desire to help
    the gifts granted when we are lifted up

    Glad enough was enough, Brother Poet coey30

    remnants of that chill...
    ...at the bottom
    oh, how cold it was
    too, the faces i turned towards for refuge
    for rescue... that left me to slowly drown in defeat
    leaving me aside only helped me to real-eyes
    my greatness...strengthening my pride
    endorse your sorrows to me
    i will weather her storm of sorrow
    that rained on you to leave you strong so you may slay
    anything which stands in your way
    feasting on my hopes
    sleeping on my faith
    RISE!!!!
    illuminate the skies appearing grey
    with your light
    your eminent charm felt
    even though you're out of
    sight...
    i see your greatness. :)

    your write is:cool: cool. I liked it a lot and it reminded me of my times at the bottom. Keep your head up;).
