    (spreading the word)

    My heart becomes sad
    when i think of the past
    of the things i once wanted to accomplish
    i had no direction, and no way to turn,
    i walked around in circle

    I can not change what happen in the past
    but i can make a different in the futrue.
    We all made bad decision in our lives
    that is only human

    But do not let it bear you down,
    it is important to learn from them...
    Do not let it bring you down
    Let it become the strength that guides you

    It matters not what we have done,
    it is important that we learn from them
    to be the apple of a young ones eyes
    and help them and inspire others.

    Donot let what you done yesterday,
    effect your tomorrow...
    It is a blessing to have another day
    to start a new with out sorrow.

    We are a race that have Endure
    more then any other.
    Lets come together Sister and Brothers
    Let learn to support each other.

    Peace

    Great poem. This board is a great start. Healing is part of the experience. Often when a person experiences lost. Any lost. Job, love one, the feeling isn't minimized. I often take my losses and those I see around me and learn from those that weren't mine. Without loss we can't appreciate the triumphs. The wins, and bright days that you spoke about. Living for the next day. To stand again. To fight again.

    Your speaking of our children. The lost one's. Those in jail, in the streets. The problem is it's hard to play games on concrete. It's hard to understand the love it takes to nurture a plant, an animal,
    or the love and tolerance you should have for one another. You have to put your hands into the soil. The earth. To connect.

    The minds eye, our shades of view can confuse any of us at any time.

    My Brothers and Sisters,
    thank you like always
    for the love i feel from all of you
    :grouphug:the positive feed i get when I am here,
    lift my hearts, to explore more
    of who we all are from the inside out ...
    all of you touch me deep,
    we are a family,
    and yesterday is gone,
    but there is today and tomorrow...
    the seed is now a tree,
    shade from the sun,
    an Umbrella from the rain,
    a place to lean on,
    and yesterday
    it was only a seed,
    growing together
    Peace Always, Much Love to ya :)
