 Reflections of My Heart

Or Maybe... ღ GPG ღ

Or Maybe...

Its so hard for me to believe
that all is hopeless
That nothing can change
except to regress
Or maybe....

Are we to sit back
and figure all is lost
There is nothing "I" can do
Oh what will be the cost
Or maybe...

We think the hungry
will never be fed
The unbeliever
never to be led
Or maybe...

The homeless
to never have a home
The broken hearted
to always be alone
Or maybe...

That brother to brother
will never live in peace
that no common ground to be found
that fighting will never cease
Or maybe...

Those who don't believe
in what our brave protectors do
That don't live what they say
when "I support our troops" they spew
Or maybe...

That a child's heart
for a mother can soften
For all to realize
tomorrow is not always an option
Or maybe...

That love is always
the illusive dream
That happiness
is just not part of the scheme
Or maybe...

That the world and those who live within
can never come together
That all have forgotten our Savior
is our only life's buffer
Or maybe...

Authors Note:
As all of you who have followed my writing
over the years know that just about
all of my writes have been triggered by a song.
Well this morning I was actually searching
for a song that would possibly lay the ground
work for a Valentines write
(my most dreaded holiday),
but I ran across this song by Phil Collins,
one of my favorite artists, that I have
never heard before. To me it spoke
such truths of the unexplainable parts
of life. You all knowing me know that
I am one that feels there just has to
be something I can do to change it,
make it better or just make it go away.
But even I have to admit "sometimes"
that with the good, bad and ugly things
of life we just have to accept
That's Just How It Is....

Or maybe....

Phil Collins
That's Just The Way It Is

ღ God asked me how long I planned on keeping you in my life.
I smiled and said...
How do I choose between always and forever...
But then I have found that's really not up to me... ღ
