    I just balled up and cried
    and I don’t know why.
    Just seems like the sun shines for everyone,
    Everyone but me.
    Wherever I go, the black rain cloud follows
    like you see in cartoons.
    But my life is not a joke –
    it’s for real
    and I’m in pain.

    I just balled up and cried
    and I don’t know why.
    I can’t smell flowers anymore,
    the thorns just cut my hands,
    or I sneeze,
    but I don’t have a cold.
    Just can’t appreciate anything.
    Hard as I try – the unfortunate happens.
    Thought I deserved better,
    being the African Queen that I am.

    But I’m in pain –
    So I just ball up,
    and cry.

    it ain't easy...

    when partly cloudy
    covers my sunshiny day
    with chances of rain swells
    like hurricane waves of a stormy sea
    in the forecast
    of me

    it aint' easy...

    when somber days
    rain down on me
    when
    grief
    and
    sorrow
    is
    all i can see

    it aint' easy...

    traveling the low road
    when
    pain
    and
    suffering
    fill my way
    and the high road
    is over crowded
    and the entrance
    is closed

    no!
    it ain't easy

    to face heartache
    and wake
    another day
    and
    smile
    like
    heartache didn't come my way

    it ain't easy

    losing the one you love
    coz all you could think of
    is
    "I can't handle this."


    THANKS FOR FLOWING.

    dear child welcome

    welcome within the playground of destee's place
    of love and care
    now my dear cry no more forth i am above ya
    wit much love and care
    what seem dark is now light
    what maybe is a myth of motion
    in a notion of true faith u will be happy
    in the land of love forth it's 4 u :heart: :kiss: :wave: :wave: :wave:
