Love in my life

- by Karen Warn 59

I married a man too early in life
and wasn't prepared to be a good wife.
I believed he loved me and things would be fine.
My love for him would grow over time.

The years passing by were good for awhile.
Then came a time I could not see my smile.
He cheated on me and I deserved more.
With a heavy heart I went out the door.

We parted as "friends", which ended one day.
With a baby conceived he went on his way.
He now liked his freedom away from me.
I carried our son -- he didn't want to see.

Soon after another cared about me;
I ignored the things I didn't want to see.
I married that man -- I thought it'd be best.
But soon after that, he was failing the test.

Driven by fear, I mistakenly thought
A son of "his own" was thing that he sought
I now had a toddler and one on the way;
there was no doubt, I now had to stay.

Things started to spiral out of control.
The alcohol had a firm grip on his soul.
Choosing to leave to protect us all;
I was forced this time to really stand tall.

Now on my own with two children to raise
I examine my life in so many ways.
My relationships failed, for that I am sad;
but the result of those could never be bad.

Now long gone are those men from my past
replaced by a "true" love that forever will last.
My love for my sons, my two little boys,
erase all my pains and reveal only my joys.

Time to stop struggling

- by Tanya 58

Life is unfair, sometimes the misery we can't bear..
This was a feeling I could never share...
I am strong, strong enough to move on from this pain,
I won't feel the shame, my life is not a game,
tired of these tears and my fears...
I will cherish my inspirations...
I will find my dream, I promise, that's what I will achieve..
I will find a way to leave..
I'm not who you will deceive..
I believe in miracles, these people laugh like it's hysterical...
I won't fall, I may be lost but I will be found...
One day I will find the perfect life, life will run beautifully,
I will fly like a butterfly through the night, will have a pleasant sight, afraid but I will fight...
No boundaries, free my mind of all the pressure, leaving here will be my pleasure..
I want so much to be free, so much I want to see...
I want to reach the sky, I want so bad too fly...
See, I use to be a fool when I let you treat me cruel...
I made a mistake but I wont let myself break..
Leave me, for gods sake...
So now I kneel down to pray, for these times of struggle I will just say, I'll leave in your hands. God, I will let go..
