    Woke up this morning
    Lost and alone
    I picked up the phone
    But as usually
    …. my friend didn’t have time
    Mind you, I always listen to her.

    I just needed to talk
    See my heart been dark
    Like a lost soul wandering
    Calling for help…

    If I can just talk it out
    Have someone to listen
    I think I be fine

    Don’t say, don’t cry
    Don’t tell me time will heal
    I am going through the pain now
    Don’t say, keep my head up
    When my sorrows have taken over
    I don’t need your input
    I just need someone to listen.

    My tears ran cold
    As my insides burnt
    With hate and dismay
    Lost and alone…

    I picked up the phone one more time
    But…
    Before I dialed the numbers
    Chills went down my spine
    And I called out
    Oh my God!
    Oh my God!
    Have I lost my mind
    Have mercy on my soul
    My insides screaming
    And I can’t let go of the pain

    See Pastor calls it, black widow
    Where peace been disturbed
    And your soul aches
    Thinking everything around you
    Is your fault…
    My emotions twisted
    Lost in a world
    And I can’t seem to get back
    I just need someone to listen

    I started talking to God
    My rambling became tears
    Instead of picking up the phone
    I dropped to my knees
    As I heard God say
    "TRY ME"

    Those times when you feel that you cant make it God is their to comfort support and guide you. If you never experiece any hard times you wont have anything to testify about. God wants us to turn to him for all of our needs. The bible teaches us that their is nothing new under the sun. We must learn from all that we are allowed to suffer because their is always something to gain from it. What? We must open our minds to be able to hear what is effectively trying to be communicated to us.

    Nicely conveyed feelings in this piece Angel

    Believe this, I have worned those shoes before, but I soon walked right out of those shoes, cause frankly...they don't wear well. Soulja was correct in saying, what he said. And what helped me the most, was "reality".
    you'll be just fine, and your smile will be brighter.

    Angel, we all have felt that need to come into ourselves and understand that it comes a time when we realize that we need something to help us through the moment or the day or the life and when we reach that point we start to understand that he has always been there for us, thats why we didnt breakdown because he was there holding us up.
