Thread: Am hurting tonight

    Am hurting tonight

    I can't exactly tell you what is hurting most this night. Physical pain I am feeling but can't find the words to describe it. Emotional pain, well, it is there too. Maybe since I have been listening to some old sad music from my past. Am not sure, tho. Time for the anniversary is coming up. Maybe that may be it. I do recall that most of the time around this time, I start feeling like this. Sure wish this(sci stuff) and other stuff would all go away forever.

    Thought I would post these words I wrote previously as a poem. Maybe it will help me feel better. Need to vent.


    Rise above the pain

    Close your eyes
    Squeeze them tight
    Take a deep breath
    It is coming back again

    Once again
    It stalks your life
    Many times in your day
    You have to bear the pain

    Pain is a part of life
    Different kinds of pain
    Pain rips you apart
    Almost drives you insane

    You must hold on tight
    Cannot let it win
    It will seem to overwhelm
    Every corner of your life

    Pain you cannot see
    Yet it is there somehow
    Deep within your heart
    Hurting every part of your body

    Pain, please go away
    God, help me to fight
    Every pain felt in my heart
    Every part of my weakening body

    I hold on to His hand
    He picks me up in his arms
    He soothes the pain away
    Wiping my tears away

    Slowly the pain
    Will gradually fade
    As God strengthens me
    To rise above the pain

    Raven, I'm so sorry to hear that you are in so much pain. Your poem was lovely. I hope you found all your missing poetry that disappeared on your computer.

    Please know that I am thinking about you at this sad time, and wishing you brighter, happier days.

    Hi Raven, I wish your pain to go away. It bothers me to know when one is in physical, mental or emotional pain; especialy when it is someone with a heart like yours.
    Know that ppl are thinking of you. I'll pray that God strengthen you in handling your trials. Try to *smile*.

    Em if you wish,,,,Freej

    I forgot: Once again,,,, your poem was great. As I'm approaching 25 yrs post, ''More than one time I have FELT the words of your poem.
    ''Have faith that He will strenthen you 'n guide you through.''

    i'm pulling for you. hang in there. we need you.

    this is a great sinead o'connor song:

    This is to mother you
    To comfort you and get you through
    Through when your nights are lonely
    Through when your dreams are only blue
    This is to mother you
    This is to be with you
    To hold you and to kiss you too
    For when you need me I will do
    What your own mother didn't do
    Which is to mother you
    All the pain that you have known
    All the violence in your soul
    All the 'wrong' things you have done
    I will take from you when I come
    All mistakes made in distress
    All your unhappiness
    I will take away with my kiss, yes
    I will give you tenderness
    For child I am so glad I've found you
    Although my arms have always been around you
    Sweet bird although you did not see me
    I saw you
    And I'm here to mother you
    To comfort you and get you through
    Through when your nights are lonely
    Through when your dreams are only blue
    This is to mother you

    Thank you Darlene, Teena, Mary, FreeJ, Obie and Cass for your words of cheer. I appreciate your well wishes and good thoughts.

    Cass, those words were beautiful.

    I am feeling a bit better today. A bit down but still hanging in there. Have noticed that around this time of the year I do start feeling down in spite of the fact that this isn't new. I guess the memories of that night will live with me for as long as I live. But I am still happy to be alive in spite of it all. I think of Isis and she makes up so much for what I miss in my life. God, I believe, knew exactly what I needed to help me on those dark times of life. I will always be thankful for her being in it.

    There is some also some pain, physical pain that many of us have to deal with but sometimes I turn into a wimp and complain unlike many others that deal with it better than I. Also, have been having some personal issues that have been bothering me and have been unable to figure how to deal with them. That fact doesn't help either. But I am certain things will most likely work out somehow. They always do somehow.

    Again, thanks all for your kind words.
