Things to Remember When I’m Afraid

By |June 9th, 2014|

Once again another door has opened
Leaving me outside my comfort zone

Once again my mind is filled with fear,
Descending from my throne

But the thing I forget,
that I need to remember
I’m a daughter of the King

There is power piercing through my veins,
So let the victory bells ring

Sinners, they let their voices be heard
They represent the worst

So why […]

Did I Forget?

By |April 12th, 2013|

Did I forget

my kids are awesome

my husband is great

I am beautiful

if not too late

 

Still have my life

my life to live

so much to do

so much to give

 

Did I forget

the many ways I’m blessed

to focus on what’s good

and forget about the rest

 

Did I forget

I’ve got talent

there’s so much I could do

Lord, did I forget to look up

keep […]

Never Again Will You Steal My Joy

By |March 16th, 2013|

You try to take my glow away

Ha, I’m on to you!

 

You think I’m unaware,

that I don’t see what you do

 

Doing all you can,

to make my light go out

Don’t think I don’t know what you are all about

 

Trying to knock me down

and keep me down there

 

But I have news for you

I’m staying right here

 

Up, up, up […]

I Cry out to You Lord

By |February 23rd, 2012|

I cry out to you Lord

Because I don’t know what else to do

I am lost and alone; I’m looking up to you

I try to make things better on my own

Time after time

But I fail, trapped in my own mental grime

 

I scream out to you Lord

Until my throat is sore

Yet, I feel no victory, no winning […]

Images

By |February 23rd, 2012|

The past is the past

That’s what the Word says

But I am still haunted by my yesterdays

Images of experiences past,

I still see them in my mind

 

They keep coming back to haunt me

Time after time

It’s like I can’t let go

The guilt follows me everywhere

I try to move forward

But yesterday’s images stir up my fear

 

It’s like the present […]

Satan, I’m Not Your Victim

By |February 23rd, 2012|

Satan, I’m not your victim

I’m not a statistic

I’m not going out like that

You are a liar, a freaking liar

But I’m taking my life back

 

You have had your hold on my mental state

from way back in my youth

But I am not letting you keep it anymore

And taking back my truth

 

You stole from me, what was rightfully […]

The Black Abyss

By |February 22nd, 2012|

To tell the plain and simple truth

Most times I feel like I’m in the dark hole

I can’t get out of

Happiness, love and joy are all around me

But I can’t touch it, no matter how hard I try

 

It’s like I’m from another dimension looking in

Everyone is smiling and laughing around me

But my laughter and smiles, I […]

Mind-Sets

By |February 21st, 2010|

Your mind seems set on being a pessimist

Why won’t you try to be an optimist?

Your mind seems determined on focusing on the worse

Why won’t you review the bright side first?

Why can’t you see the positive?

The sunny side, the silver lining and stop thinking about the negative

Your mind seems set on all your flaws

Open your eyes […]

Higher

By |February 20th, 2010|

Now it’s time you get out of my head

Whispering negative thoughts in my mind instead

of revealing the potential that is in me

 

You cover my eyes

So I don’t see

Can’t see the true reflection inside of me

 

I got it all

All I need

To be a winner

To succeed

 

But you fill my thoughts with negative things

Anxiety, fear, regret, guilt

It brings

 

Your […]

Revolution From Within

By |February 16th, 2010|

It’s true no one can make you feel

inferior if you don’t want to

You can be shackled in chains,

hands and feet

And still not suffer defeat

 

You are as free as you want to be

Sometimes our mind keeps us blind

Prisoners inside our heads

You are powerful, you are strong,

Only to be weakened by what you think wrong

 

People try to […]
