    Doublecrossed
    Confused
    You respond with silence
    And darkness
    Withdrawn your love
    From the masses
    And caused a break in your family
    The sun no longer shines in your life
    For you have been betrayed by its shine
    Now you retreat to the shadows
    And in the hunger of your wrath
    Vowing vengeance on those who once
    Were dear to you
    The darkness permeating your being
    Driving a wedge between blood
    Yet one day
    You shall emerge
    Victorious
    And your transformation will be complete
    Yet will you be the same
    Will things return to normal?
    Will love resume the way in which we have known?
    I think not
    Remaining too long out the flow
    May corrupt what we hold dear
    Put it past
    And return
    Forgive
    And let live
    And anoint us again
    Speak to us.....
    Or forever hold your peace

    Can I get an Amen?!!

    Watcher you are sooooo on point with this one. I'm feeling your whole vibe in this piece.

    Hey you...just let go and let GOD.

    If GOD can forgive...so can you! As a matter of fact, YOU ARE OBLIGATED!!!

    SPEAK ON IT!

    A wise woman once said to me during a particularly difficult time
    that if you are a Christian or you profess a hope in God, then
    Forgiveness is not an option it is Mandatory!
    Dang ya'll did it again. That's my next poem...
    I love this place! And I double love this piece!!!!!!:toast:
