Shall I give up

Finally give in

Never gonna succeed

Certainly never win


Everything seems futile

Nothing seems real

Hopelessly lost

This is how I feel


Tomorrow will come

As it always does

But today I’m different

In what I’ve become


Can’t repair

This broken life

So much unhappiness

Inundated with strife


What to do

A decision to make

May be the last chance

Can’t make a mistake


Giving up seems easy

Giving in seems weak

Could make a difference

Use this time to speak


Choices in life

So hard to decide

Especially when life

Brings an uneasy ride


Change of mindset

Could do the trick

Foolish thoughts

Mustn’t stick


Can’t let everything

Get me down

Life’s too short

To wear a frown

  2. Each day brings with it a new basket of struggles we hadn’t anticipated receiving. I elect to believe there’s also a basket of good wherein we may select the goodness we are surrounded with on a daily basis and whichever basket we elect from we still don’t have easy answers.

  10. Exactly, Dorinda!

    Heavenly Father, I life Michelle and her family up to now, to wrap your loving and graceful arms around them. Please be the light they see in the morning, and make it shine throughout the day and night, too. Please continue to guide them and hold them, comfort and encourage them in this trying time. I ask that keep inspiring Michelle to write these beautiful poems of longing and despair (for we must take the good with the bad,) and hope and love, which is in You and from You, only. In your son’s holy name, I pray this. Amen.


    May the Lord bless you and keep you.
    May the Lord make his face to shine upon you,
    and be gracious to you.
    May the Lord lift up his countenance upon you,
    and give you peace.
