Once a couple,
connected by offspring,
connected by a past,
connected by a feeling
that will always last.
How will they know what their feelings mean?
Signs will come
and actions will gleam.
These feelings may be mistaken for love
and may be mistaken for opportunity.
good or bad,
or a combination of both,
unexplained and unresolved,
a sense of connection.
When you reach the point in your life
when nothing can affect you,
and you have strong self-confidence,
and you rely solely on yourself and faith in the Lord,
and you strive to fulfill your dreams,
and you live for you,
you have reached the turning point
You have realized the importance
of being happy for you and not for anyone else.
You are important to your survival
and responsible for your heart, your mind,
and your destiny.
Patience is a virtue
and waiting can be burdensome.
Minutes seem like hours
and hours seem like days.
They say good things come to those who wait.
Sometimes waiting can be time consuming.
It angers the mind
and complicates the wait.
Patience is a virtue
and is often compromised.
Patience should be practiced in all we do.
Troubles will cease in time.
In life, we must make choices
and to hate.
Choices are a fact of life.
It is non-avoidable
Care must be exercised
in the choices we make.
Once a choice is made
There is no turning back.
We must live with the consequences
whether good or bad.
Learn from our past,
plan for our future,
and live in the present.
Sometimes the pain never goes away.
It creeps up on you like you are its prey.
It brings you down when you are all alone.
It tries its best to make you its home.
It makes you cry deep inside.
It exposes feelings so deep you tried to hide.
Memories of hurt still felt
and shattered dreams, hopes, and desires.
You wonder when the pain will cease.
You hope for a quick release.
Nevertheless, the pain is there.
It attacks you when you are unaware.
It takes you back to a circumstance
and that is there.
You are caught between should I or should I not.
Indecisiveness is in full swing.
You are weighing the pros and the cons.
You desire an answer.
An answer only you can provide.
What do you do when life decisions arise?
You reach deep inside.
The decision you make will affect your life
in a way you never thought of.
Nevertheless, a decision has to be made.
Roads have to be traveled.
Pain has to be felt.
Life sometimes presents us with decisions
Giving to receive,
receiving and losing,
taking a path into the unknown
are the sacrifices of life.
The children are our future.
They are buds in waiting
and prospects for greatness.
They need stability, love, and two strong parents.
Careful thought must be given to actions affecting children.
Children are impressionable.
One wrong action
can result in a life of pain,
destroy a child’s adulthood,
and affect their mental state,
causing turmoil in their life,
destroying their present,
and affecting their future.
It is better to think before you act,
consider the potential results of your actions,
work out problems as adults,
become better parents,
honor your mate
and make decisions that will be better for the children,
better for you
resulting in a better quality of life.
Life is like a story book.
It has a beginning and it has an ending.
Life is something everyone must experience.
No matter how tough it gets
you have to keep on living.
Life is a gift from God.
You either keep it or you do not.
Life has its ups and downs.
It takes a strong person to take it.
Life must not be taken for granted.
It must be cherished and made the best of.
For one to end his or her life
is one who does not appreciate gifts.
It is one who is weak and unconcerned about God’s greatest gift.
Life should be lived to the fullest
and should end when God sees fit.
Life is something given from God.
Its span is indeterminable.
Life brings with it many things,
some good and some bad.
Life is such a lonely soul.
It is not promised one minute to the next.
Life is so wonderful to have.
It should be enjoyed to the fullest.
Life has no definite meaning.
It is something we all go through.
Life has no superiors.
It is the greatest gift of all.
An undisclosed event
is heavy on your mind.
Something so painful
you rather not tell.
It haunts you in the daytime,
and it haunts you at night.
You fear its disclosure
will disrupt your life
and cause problems you do not need.
You wish it would go away
and not be a force against you.
What do you do when someone finds out?
Do you deny, confirm, or disregard?
Or do you confront it?
It is better to deal with it and pray.
Why put it off another day.
