How Sad..

How sad,
A lover of life has fallen
She has too many burdens to take it all in
When she’s hit rock bottom, her positive thoughts are always stallin.
To her creator she’s constantly callin,
She’s impatient, constantly teary-eyed and bawlin,
Doesn’t want anyone to break her “personal box” wall in
Wherever she goes she has on her back her problems that she’s haulin
Once a strong woman who walked confidently, now she’s crawlin.
The things she once loved, she now finds appalling.
Her meditation, spirituality, the devils slowly uninstalling.
Nobody she wants to speak to, this chick is constantly blogging,
Forgot about the great things she did, constantly rememberin her downfalls and—
Anticipates the nightfall when—
her mind will sleep,
Her mind also her enemy recallin
The wrongs in her life.
All this negative energy is building like a snowball and
Has frozen her mind.
She needs her heart’s coils to unwind.
She knows she can no longer be blind
to God’s mercy and love combined in this test.
Needs to break out of this box that has got her confined,
Accept all the great offerings that she so quickly declined.
Has to rebuild her reason of existence she had so clearly defined.
Wants to go back to the days where she was so entwined with the most Merciful’s love.
See, she has all of this so perfectly outlined,
But its useless if she doesn’t take a step back and rewind,
Remind herself of all the tasks to which God had her assigned,
Years ago there was a promise that she made, a verbal contract she signed,
That she will no longer dance with the devil, the destroyer of mankind,
She’s gotta let go of her baggage, leave all the b.s. behind
And work back towards the days of when her heart will once again shine,
This lover of life realizes her answers are always and only with the divine..

How sad...(c)

Life's Song...

Just you and I here in my thoughts..
Just you and I…
You and I…
I have stayed too far for too long…
I have forgotten the rhythm to life’s love song…
I became deaf to the tune of my heart’s strings…
I lost the feeling of the earth’s drum beat in my core,
I stopped hearing the birds sing…

I heard Your song again yesterday,
You touched my heart with so much love,
I realized how far I had strayed,
Forgetting that you always watch me from up above…

Oh God,
I don’t ever want to miss a beat,
I don’t want to forget my life’s tune,
Waiting for the day we finally meet,
Not sure as to how soon…

The comfort you grant my heart,
Incomparably deep,
I’m ashamed for keeping us apart,
I can’t tread on this road alone,
My hill is way too steep…

Through pain-ridden sobs, I reach out for you,
Scared you have left me on my path,
But how can I think such things,
When your beloved mercy outweighs your wrath?

I cling to you, never wanting to let you go,
I’ve been learning my lessons you have been teaching me,
I’m coming to know what I need to know,
I feel your caring guidance as my problems increase
and my faith continues to grow.

My heart is now beating to your beauty’s rhythm,
Your love is seeping through my pores
I will keep our conversations deep within
I won’t give up the burning passion for your favor which is instilled in my core…

I’m dancing…and singing…to the song you planted in my heart…
My life is changing chorus,
My verses are changing,
My ears, heart and mind has finally opened to you again..
Just you and I today,
You and I,

So while I was looking up a pic for marriage for my post below,

I saw this picture and thought I would freaking cute...

By the way, my "marriage or not" post caused a lot of's great having a lot of comments,

Thanks to all of those who posted!!!


My partner in life,
The 2nd gender to my soul,
the other half of me,
the one who makes me whole,

My tag-team partner,
constantly tryin to progress,
the one who takes my hand
and helps me pass life, the biggest and greatest test...

The one I wake to in the mornings,
the one who completes my smile,
the one I admire so fondly,
the one who makes everything worthwhile,

The father of my children,
the king of my throne,
the one who my heart let's in,
the one always holding me, never leaving me alone,

The one whom I grow old with,
the one whom shares my pillow,
my sunshine after the rain,
the one whom i can't let go..

My husband, my friend,
the one I'll love til the end...
waiting for the day i meet you,
so my jaded heart can mend...
