    This isn't quiet nor peaceful
    But it's real
    It's how I feel
    And how to deal
    with what is, not what could be
    sometimes, you just get tired
    of straining and trying to see
    what's clearly not there
    Aretha said it...respect...
    where is it? Was it ever really
    there? And did I ever suspect
    that it would turn out this way
    Maybe, I had a feeling
    but I so did not want to give
    into it, so now I am reeling,
    knowing, just how deep the
    resentment is.
    This is not quiet nor peaceful
    But this is how I feel.
    When a house no longer feels
    like a home. Sometimes you
    have to consider packing your bags.
    And be grateful to
    those who brought you joy and
    taught something valuable and new.
    While trying to forget about those
    chosen few who seem to be
    priviledged somehow
    to run blindly and free
    without even a raised eyebrow.
    And then flaunt the fact
    that they can, without
    even an inkling of tact.
    When respect goes out
    the door so do I
    that's what I'm talking about.
    This is not quiet nor peaceful
    But it's real
    and how I feel.

    When respect goes out the door
    just lock the door behind it!

    Know within your heart
    is where you will always find it!!

    Heartfelt drop Sis!

    You laid this down in the way you must be feeling - quietly but so strongly. I applaud the strength within you and the fortitude you possess, my sister. Much love and peace to you.

    First and foremost, I have to say you are an "Incredible writer"...I know I've said it before but his piece just confirms it more...

    Secondly...I feel you, sister...

    But evil falls by it's own weight and what goes around "Always" comes back around...

    You are a survivor...don't give up ~ been there.../ the way you feel is the way I've felt before...

    but the cream always rises to the top...that's for sure... :grouphug:

    I have been a survivor, I hope to continue to be so. Yes, what goes around does come around, in time. Thank you sis, your words have their way of sustaining me.
