 LESSONS LEARNED FROM THE DARK TO THE LIGHT

MY DEATH DAY


I WAS PLAYING WITH THE
HANDS OF DEATH, DANCING
 WITH MY BIGGEST BET.....
WONDERING IF MY DEATH WAS
 DRAWING NEAR, WITH MY
ADDICTION I HAD NO FEAR..
 REPRESSED IT ALL IN THE
BACK OF MY MIND, FAR AWAY
 FOR IT I DIDN'T WANT TO
FIND...
 WEBBED A NET TO HOLD IT
IN..THIS TRICK IS CALLED
 GATING MY FRIENDS, MINE
WASN'T STRONG ENOUGH TO
 LOCK IT ALL AWAY...
SO I TURNED TO DRUGS ONE
 COLD WET DAY..CAN'T GIVE
YOU A DATE, CAN'T GIVE YOU
 A TIME, HELL ALL THAT I'M
STILL TRYING TO FIND....
 THE DRUGS BUILT THE WALL
TO KEEP IT ALL IN..SO IT
 COULDN'T HURT ME EVER AGAIN
I PLAYED WITH DEATH AND HE
 CAME MY WAY...KNOCKED ON
MY DOOR SEVEN YEARS AGO TODAY...
 HE STOOD THERE DARK,HOODED,
AND COLD...MY SOUL TO HIM
 I HAD SOLD...HE TRIED SO
HARD TO TAKE ME AWAY., BUT
 SOME THING KEPT ME HERE THAT
DAY....FOR ONE REASON ALONE
 TO SEND MY MESSAGE TO ALL OF
YOU...TO BE A MOM WHO'S STRONG
 AND TRUE...I WATCHED AS HE
TURNED AND WALKED AWAY...MY
 CHILDREN BROUGHT ME BACK
ON MY DEATH DAY...
                              SEVEN YEARS AGO TODAY
                                     10-20-11
