    I stopped writing awhile ago because
    I was scared of what I was finding
    A young man
    Lost,
    Alone, and
    Afraid and everyday going deeper into hiding
    It was hard trying to fight to see through the tears
    As God showed me my very self in the rawest form,
    But eventually things looked up,
    And I thought I
    Moved on
    But really I was just
    Trying to sustain my life with
    Warm blood, and red eyes
    And for a while it helped to
    Ease the pain that filled my cluttered insides
    But it never fails
    The high subsides and the pain still lies and
    Once again the tears fill my eyes
    Truthfully
    I'm still lost but
    At least I'm witting again

    ……..Trying to find some answers sitting here scribbin with my pen

    What you found while wrtting were your questions, and the feelings of confusion and pain, this is good for a start to know in what state is your heart and mind. Now keep writting and don't stop, because that is how the answers will come.

    I really like this poem, very well scribed. :)

    continue to write, my friend. the answers will come...in the form of a flow that was given in the wee hours of the night. and, though, you may write it...it isn't of you. for, it was inspired for you...given to you...as an answer to all you need to know.

    loved the flow.

    lp.


    & here i was thinkin' you were writing again to
    stop me from badgering you to death! :wink:
    serious-ly, tho'... Never stop writing! putting
    down your heartfelt thoughts on paper has the
    power to truly unlock many doors. let your
    internal dialogue flow... & watch yourself grow,
    chile!! :) get a journal if you don't already
    have one!! they're extreme-ly therapeutic.

    itsallLove. (& you Know this!)

    I must echo the many thoughts of the previous poets...Be patient,
    know that God has outlined an detailed map, planned for you, and that He walks with you through your travels...as you find YOU

    a couple years back I was involved in a DEEPLY traumatic circumstance that caused me to feel much the same way - that is when I found this poetry family on the pages of afronet (many of whom still reside here).

    Through other's poetry and encouragement I slowly but surely found a way out of my dilemma...it was a dark and very unhappy time for me, but my family here helped me find strength and feel loved...and I too found myself able to write again.

    As long as you are true to yourself I believe the people here will help you.

    May you be bathed in the light of the Almighty's Love!

    Many Blessings
