Fashionable Attire

Posted by God Loves Women on January 6, 2012 at 4:45 PM Comments comments (0)

Fashionable attire

Branded to impress

Take off the label

It is worth 50 quid less


Must have the logo

The badge or the label

Work to buy it

Or get into debt if unable

 

Walk through the town

A shop for each name

Take away their labels

They all look the same

 

Dress like the famous

Look like a celebrity

Does no one see

Their lives are so empty

 

Labels are unimportant

Brands are not status

Names that cost hundreds

Are not what make us

 

Relationships make us

The way we love others

The kindness we show

Treat people like they're above us


If only everyone could see it

From the right aspect

Brands don't impress

Showing love gets respect

Everything's Getting Too Much

July 2008


Everything’s getting too much

I feel unloved

You feel unloved

What’s the point in all of this


I love you, yes

You love me?

I want not to feel bad

But that’s not happening


Because you’ll still do it how ever I feel

Because it’s too good to stop

Too good to stop my crying eyes

Or not if I shout and scream and ball

I don’t want to

I just want you to say no

Knowing the hurt it puts me through


But there I go

Wanting too much

I’m sure we’ll be fine

I’m sure it will work


Or maybe it won’t

I can’t be sure anymore


But it’s ok

Because what you say

And what you mean

Is I love you

Escape

April 2005


I don’t like this life

Full of pain and strife

I want to escape from a world

Where my brain is twizzled and twirled

Until I am left confused and lost

I want to leave no matter what the cost

A price so high, it will hurt so much

A daughter without a mothers touch

A husband without a wife’s love

No entry into heaven above

I want to want to live

I want to be able to forgive

But I don’t know if I can

I don’t even know where it began

But even if I did I don’t think it would matter

Because in the end everything I do seems to shatter

So I’m left wanting to die

It isn’t really important the what’s or the why

Just that I couldn’t save me

And neither could you

 

 

Diddley Diddley

June 2005


Diddley diddley

Or so they say

Diddley diddley

All the day

 

Wasting time on valueless crap

Only seeking to widen the gap

Waiting for anyone to lighten the load

Not thinking they could just leave it alone


Dum dee dum

Or so they say

Dum dee dum

All the day

 

Twiddling thumbs waiting for excitement

Only to find they’ve got an indictment

Watching as children follow bad parents footprints

Nobody listening as the world whispers and hints


Flagherty floo

Or so they say

Flagherty floo

All the day

 

Criticising the world for all of its mess

None of the problems trying to address

Just waiting and hoping that one day it’ll change

As long as I don’t have my life rearranged

Emptiness

Posted by God Loves Women on January 1, 2012 at 3:15 PM Comments comments (0)

February 2005


Empty smile upon my face

Empty words and an empty embrace

Empty of feeling and void of all hope

Losing the will to carry on and to cope

My soul has been blackened by actions of mine

My days are all night, the sun doesn’t shine

Insincere gratitude and no ability to thank

Not since the day the real me got too heavy and sank

Vacant expression and vacant of care

Seems nobody minds my blank, desolate stare

Expressionless words said to please those who want them

Insipid gestures given through boredom

Valueless morals and a dishonest prayer

Sinking and drowning in hopeless despair

Ignorant opinions and ignorant knowledge

I might as well mash my brains into porridge

Rhetorical talk of propaganda and rumor

No laughter, no smile, no sense of humor

Forgotten promises and destructive advice

A hunger that no morsel can entice

A purposeless life with unsatisfactory outcomes

To the reaper that beckons me, I might as well succumb

 

 

I Find Me

Posted by God Loves Women on January 1, 2012 at 3:05 PM Comments comments (0)

As I sit here reminded

Of what I used to be

I look up to the sky

Knowing that I am totally free

 

Bound so tight by darkness

Lost and in despair

You dragged me into the light

When You could have just left me there


You tended to my wounds

And broke my every fall

And enabled me to dance

When I couldn’t move at all


I know what it’s like to own my own life

And do stuff my own way

But I ended up destroyed

Hating myself more everyday


So I give my life to You

Jesus You can have me totally

And what I find; sold out to You

That in You, I find me, completely

Darkness Here

July 2008


I thought the darkness had all but gone

That the shadows of hurt had been exorcised

But they were imprisoned, by the highest of powers

Until I had the strength to overcome them


Feelings of drowning in pain unknown

Tears that won’t, but can be cried

A life full of wonderful things

A place to find and let go of the hurt


A love so great it dampens the blows

Precious beyond the worthlessness I feel

Embraced even when I lose my mind

A love given by God’s great grace

Cracks in the Ceiling

Posted by God Loves Women on December 23, 2011 at 5:50 PM Comments comments (0)

May 2007


I look at the ceiling seeing a small crack

I hear in the distance someone hurting a lot

I stare at the crack as it slowly creeps out

Hearing distant grunts and terrible pain

The spidery lines of the cracks are growing

I count them as the sounds grow louder

Quickly they become an uncountable amount

The sounds have dulled but their pain intensified

As plaster dust falls onto my face

Crevices, fissures and chinks open above

While the sound of hurt can no longer be quieted

As the ceiling falls in pieces smashing against my body

The man I married gets up and starts to redress

 

 

 

 

Confidence

Posted by God Loves Women on December 10, 2011 at 3:25 PM Comments comments (1)

Holding your head up high

And your shoulders straight

Striding about with ease

Feeling you have got no weight

 

Watching the world go by

Knowing it will all be good

Feeling you will always win

And knowing you always should

 

Looking people in the eye

Talking with power in your voice

Saying no if you want to

Knowing you have that choice

 

The knowledge you’re good enough

That you don’t need to take the bad

That you have a priceless worth

You are the best you will ever have

 

If tomorrow should ask me

Posted by God Loves Women on November 28, 2011 at 1:15 PM Comments comments (0)

If tomorrow should ask me

What I’m going to do

I would just say

‘What’s it to you?’

 

If yesterday should remind

Of what I did do

I’d just tell it

I’m not talking to you

 

Yes, bad things have happened

There are bad things that I’ve done

But I’ve said all my sorrys

And nothing can be undone

 

The things that have hurt

Have made me so strong

And the mistakes I made

Shaped who I am

 

Yes things could go wrong

The futures a blank

But you can’t raise the ship

Unless it has sank

 

So I’m living in the now

Thinking about today

No need to think about

Tomorrow or yesterday
