Can She Overcome?

Pain and sorrow have shaped her life
But can she overcome the strife
Will she be able to love once more
Or is her heart frozen to the core
Can she open enough within
That she can let someone new in
Or will she always keep them at bay
Until they are pushed to run away
She must keep hope that she can overcome
To the pain of this life she can’t succumb


Accepting

original By Colin-47 via Flickr

I want to be free of all this pain
To remove this shackle and this chain
Tired of my heart being filled with doubt
Tired of hearing my soul scream and shout
I want frustration to disappear
From my life so that my future’s clear
But as each problem seems to fade
Another in my life is made
There is no escape from the strife
I must accept it’s part of life


Goodbye

Time to say goodbye
You won’t see me cry
This isn’t like before
Let me show you the door
You will not be welcomed back
Courage I no longer lack
If I see you again beware
I won’t give you time to prepare
For the new page I turned in my life
I will no longer cave in to strife
It’s on my own two feet that I now stand
It’s my life and you are not in command
