I sit and think
As my thoughts come and sink
"What did I do?"
For you to do those things you chose to do
TO ME
Without a care in the world about how I felt
When you only cared about what you wanted,
Just only about yourself
When I was faithful as I could be
Oh NOW you wanna take notice and see
All the things I did for you and me.
Now its too late,
I can honestly say
"I wish I never met you that day"
How could I fall in love and trust you?
A person who kept secrets, cheated, and never told the truth
I dont care who you with or what you do
Long as you keep your distance between me and you
I had to move on and get over you
Yes, it hurt
But it was something I had to do.
Cuz I realized you didnt love me
The way I loved you
So dont even come at me
Talkin bout what youve realized now

A Father's Purpose

1205795_father_and_son

What should a father be?

What should a father do?

The list of duties could go on and on,

But I will discuss only a few.

 

A father should be a spiritual leader,

He should be a good listener too.

He should be a good provider,

Listen to what I am telling you.

 

A father is available,

When his children are in need.

He should teach them right from wrong,

You all please take heed!

 

Because a father is very special,

Definitely in God’s sight.

As long as he graciously follows,

After God’s marvelous light.

 

We congratulate all of the fathers,

Not just today, but everyday.

Because God’s call on your life is great,

And that's all I have to say!

Do I get to say TGIF?

It seems to feel like this is the beginning of my week…

So many things need to be done yet I sleep…

Eyes may not be close but my progress is at a creep…

Like the old man with his walker, tink! tink!...

I NEED SOME MOTIVATION! So it's coffee I drink…

My Heart Stopped Aching Yesterday

Me_and_My_Brother

My heart stopped aching yesterday,

It has ached for almost 26 years.

When he acknowledged me as his sister,

I almost burst into tears.

I have seen him in many different places,

I even knew that he was my brother.

But all I could do was look at him,

Because we did not share the same mother.

When he was just a little boy,

I would want to hold him tight.

I knew that I couldn't though,

Even though it would feel right

I didn't want to upset him or his family,

That's the last thing I'd ever do.

Would You Stay?

Would you Stay is my opinion on various real situations in everyday life, if not your life then of264245_whats_that someone that you may know.  I took the time to address them in this simple poem I wrote.  Please take the time out and think about these words!!!!

Would you stay with your spouse if he cheated on you?

Would you stay with your spouse after you’ve done all you could do?

Would You Stay?

Would you stay with your spouse if he called you names?

Would you stay with your spouse playing stupid childish games?

WE WERE BORN OUT OF SLAVERY1161655_crouch

Out of generations of slavery are born people of many colors.

Our identities denied by years of oppression.

We were born proud and true, a race among many,

whom God brought forth, to serve Him not mankind.

We must not hate our oppressors, for the Bible has taught us to love.

We were born out of slavery and put on earth to be free.

We didn’t ask for this life, of beatings and lynching.

We didn’t ask to be raped, and have our dignities destroyed,

our children born of fair skin, blue-eyed and straight hair.

We were born out of slavery, to save all men and women,

from hatred, poverty, but mostly to stand as an equal

in the eyes of all men.
