Remembering 9-11

We must never forget the date 9-11-01. It has now been sixteen years since that tragic day. Time goes by so quickly. Prayers for the families who lost their love ones on that terrible day.

A Hurt Son’s Thoughts

You get upset

When I call you father

But do you really think that

You deserve to be called dad

You were sent away to prison

When my brother and I

Were very young

I was five and he was three

God blessed you

To have your sentence

Reduced tremendously

You are now free

After ten years of being

Away I can’t believe

That we are the last ones

On your list that you are

Trying to see

My brother and I

Are wondering why

Is it too much

For you to be a father to us

My mother doesn’t understand

But she keeps on pushing

You got us all

Sitting back thinking wow

On this day

I made a vow

That if I were to ever

Become a father

I will never

Abandon, disrespect or hurt

My child or it’s mother

Broken Covenant

When I use to think of what we had

It would make me sad

After all marriage is a special thing

A covenant with God

When a lady and a man

Becomes wife and husband

Number one we must understand

True love isn’t planned

Love is precious

And so beautiful

Especially when the love is equal

So if you are not ready

For love then don’t accept

A person’s heart

When they offer it to you

Another important thing

A marriage can not survive

With interferences from the outside

Also decisions should not be made

As if single is your status

They must be made together

With a prayer to God as the glue

To hold them into place

Praying that you gain understanding

As I have one day

I don’t blame God

And I don’t blame you

I played a role in the demise

Of the marriage too

It’s a shame what we planned to prosper

Has been reduced to a poem

Which consist of nouns and verbs

On a piece of paper

I am no longer sad or mad anymore

Because I now know that regardless of the

Outcome God has a plan

So now I understand

I no longer question why

I know that God has greater

For me in my life

Looking on the bright side helped me to realize

Where I messed up and that was not keeping

God first

See human beings are like candles

Under pressure we burn out

But God is like the sun

The light never goes out

He knew us before our births

He has a master plan

For our lives

But if you don’t consult the master

There’s a chance that things won’t work

Pride will have a person looking from a window

On the outside wishing that you were inside

Pride kills happiness it leaves you with regret

So if you have a ego lose it

It’s not worth it

I have grown to be so much wiser now

I no longer cradle ideas about marriage

That are fables

Only God can keep a marriage stable

Because He is able

All we have to do is lay

Everything out on the table

I have never had so much confidence

About letting go

I truly hope that you find

The wife that is meant for you

I don’t hate you

How can I

I once loved you

Besides harboring hate has no use

It only keeps me from reaching

The next level that I am trying

To get to

This isn’t drama it’s truth

Being honest is the right thing to do

As you can see I’ve looked

At me I have taken ownership

Of my mistakes

Can you
