2003

sometimes I want to scream and cry at what my mind feels, when the sadness takes control of my inner being and all the tears that go hidden begin to fall. When thoughts o that someone flood my thinking and no matter what I cannot stop them from filling my soul with what there was that made it so special and true. Sometimes on days like today I try to sleep away the hours so that something else may fill my head but even in sleep the dreams come and the safety the warmth, the friendship become even a more alienating scream from within, asking when is it my turn. Will it ever be my turn, and what have I done so wrong in this lifetime that I cannot find the dream that all have. The dream to be loved and cherished.

a day wasted, with no place to go, with no life to share, with no light in the darkness, with only silence in the night and no one to add warmth to my life. It seems so cold in my world

Don't I have any worth?
I know I'm not smart
and I ain't pretty
I know I don't always do the things I should
and I ain't done some things I could
Ain't I worth something?
I know I have many failings
and I ain't been perfect
I know I never do what is right
and I ain't got enough fight

I know I don't always speak correctly
and I ain't never been no lady
I know I can't cook
and I stink at opening books

But Ain't I worth Something?
Is My destiny always to fail?

1998

Memories of yesterday surface to the forefront of my mind,
bringing with it sweet sorrow, that I can not define

1997

Anger so clouds the mind, that it cannot perceive the truth.
