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 […]

Bloodshot Eyes

By |February 25th, 2012|

I look in the mirror

I see bloodshot eyes

On account of sleepless nights

and intermediate cries

To this season I’d like to say my goodbyes


In the Bible it says, for everything there is a season

And I have to believe this is all for a reason


But right now all I want to do is runaway

Find myself in a brighter […]

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 […]

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 […]

I Surrender

By |February 22nd, 2012|

I raise my hands up

I reach out to you

No more trying to figure it out

No more wondering what to do


I surrender all

I surrender it all to you

My circumstance, my situation

I’ll trust in you to guide me to a resolution


I will take it moment by moment

One step at a time

Wait for your answers

In the right time


I […]

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 […]


By |January 9th, 2012|

If this is what I can accomplish

with the strength and courage I lack

I wonder the things I could do,

if I didn’t let fear hold me back


What if I no longer fed my fears and doubts?

Fed my faith instead

How much further would I be ahead


What dances I’d dance

What songs I’d sing

What poems I’d write

If I freed […]


By |January 6th, 2012|

I can never quite comprehend

How easy it comes to you

Evil monsters, scary monsters

How do you do the things you do?

As though life has no value


You take, you steal, you kill

Destruction of all that is good and beautiful is your will


You lie, you cheat, you burn

You take what you didn’t earn


It makes me cry

When people die

By […]
