    Got outta bed this morning
    Children ready in a flash
    On our way to school
    Out the door we dash

    It's beautiful today
    The kinda day I can dig
    wanted to get some things done early
    So I went to the gig

    Did what I had to do
    In three hours I was done
    The rest of the day to enjoy
    Soakin up in the sun

    Headed home to the hill
    Grabbed a quick bite to eat
    Couldn't wait to sit back
    and prop up my feet

    Got to the door, turned the lock
    Then flicked on the light switch
    On my face the lQQk of shock
    Out my mouth.."aint this a b****"

    Got my phone, called around
    To see if anyone else was down
    Saw myself sittin lonely
    called the light company to clown

    She went on about a minute
    Talkin bout money past due
    Jus dropped yall off cheese last week
    But still I got screwed

    So much on me,
    I jus can't bare
    Still the world turns with no care
    Then wrote this poem jus to share

    Today, this is what happened to me
    I wanna scream...I wanna shout
    Couldn't see the light for darkness
    The Day the Light Went Out :cry:

    this was posed well
    at times it gets hard
    but we get stronger as
    hard times come our way....
    i think we all can relate
    and know Our Father will not put on us
    what we can not bare.....
    stay strong my sista..:grouphug:
    likes the flow
    Peace

    Yes, that electric company...smh....and why is it that they usually cut it off when you just made a payment, just not enough to suit them? Anyway, tight drop.
