Pain

Pain

My sore feet walk down the tired and cracked sidewalk
The sun is in my eyes; I don’t care, I already have a headache
I look at the houses, homes, lives next to me

The first house has a baby crying in the bedroom
There’s a lady who can’t stand next door to them
On the other side is a house that cant sell

I enter my house and hear faint screams
Reminding me of last night when I was slapped…with insults
I stub my toe, and walk my weak legs to the TV

Oprah is on TV talking to a widowed woman
Lives destroyed, lost, like mine it seems-They cry, I cry
Through the tears the phone rings-I don’t answer it
The message is my grandma-she misses us

I glance out the window and see a stray dog
Someone, some where’s missing it, maybe
My mouth hurts from smiling fake smiles
They don’t know I’m not happy, do they have to?

I go to my room and turn on sad country music
It reminds me of Sunday Church, the prayer requests
The needs not met, the PAIN, and I cry again.

This is all too true. I wrote this based on things that have been happening in my life lately. But I must always remember that God is right there to take away the pain, whether its physical, emotional, spiritual, physcological- whatever the situation is, He'll be there!

WOW!

One night a guy & a girl were driving home from the movies. The boy sensed there was something wrong because of the painful silence they shared between them that night. The girl then asked the boy to pull over because she wanted to talk. She told him that her feelings had changed & that it was time to move on. A silent tear slid down his cheek as he slowly reached into his pocket & passed her a folded note.

At that moment, a drunk driver was speeding down that very same street. He swerved right into the drivers seat, killing the boy. Miraculously, the girl survived. Remembering the note, she pulled it out & read it.

"Without your love, I would die."

for all the women out there!

One Flaw In Women By the time the Lord made woman, He was into his sixth day ofworking overtime. An angel appeared and said, "Why are you spending so much time onthis one?"And the Lord answered, "Have you seen my spec sheet on her? She has to be completely washable, but not plastic, have over 200 movableparts, all replaceable and able to run on diet coke and leftovers, have alap that can hold four children at one time, have a kiss that can cureanything from a scraped knee to a broken heart - and she will do everything with only two hands. "The angel was astounded at the requirements. "Only two hands!? No way! And that's just on the standard model? That's too much work for one day. Wait until tomorrow to finish."But I won't," the Lord protested. "I am so close to finishingthis creation that is so close to my own heart. She already heals herself when she is sick AND can work 18 hour days."The angel moved closer and touched the woman. "But you have made her so soft, Lord.""She is soft," the Lord agreed, "but I have also made her tough.You have no idea what she can endure or accomplish.""Will she be able to think?", asked the angel.The Lord replied, "Not only will she be able to think, she will be able to reason and negotiate."The angel then noticed something,and reaching out, touched the woman's cheek. "Oops, it looks like you have a leak in this model. I told you that you were trying to put too much into this one.""That's not a leak," the Lord corrected, "that's a tear!" "What's the tear for?" the angel asked.The Lord said, "The tear is her way of expressing her joy, her sorrow, her pain, her disappointment, her love, her loneliness, her grief and her pride. "The angel was impressed. "You are a genius, Lord. You thought of everything! Woman is truly amazing."And she is! Women have strengths that amaze men. They bear hardships and they carry burdens, but they hold happiness, love and joy. They smile when they want to scream. They sing when they want to cry. They cry when they are happy and laugh when they are nervous. They fight for what they believe in. They stand up to injustice. They don't take "no" for an answer when they believe there is a better solution. They go without so their family can have. They go to the doctor with a frightened friend. They love unconditionally. They cry when their children exceland cheer when their friends get awards. They are happy when they hear abouta birth or a wedding. Their hearts break when a friend dies. They grieve at the loss of a family member, yet they are strong when they think there is no strength left. They know that a hug and a kiss can heal a broken heart. Women come in all shapes, sizes and colors. They'll drive, fly, walk, run or e-mail youto show how much they care about you. The heart of a woman is what makes the world keep turning. They bring joy, hope and love. They have compassion and ideals. They give moral support to their family and friends. Women have vital things to say and everything to give. HOWEVER, IF THERE IS ONE FLAW IN WOMEN, IT IS THAT THEY FORGET THEIR WORTH.
