Someone has told a horrible lie.
They told me,"God, will not give
you more than you can handle."
But I swear it, I think he has.
Should I count to you,
these things that make me feel
weighted to this earth,
no, I count my blessings,
until I want to scream them,
and ask,"Why is it? What have I done?"
Then they say,"What does not kill you,
will only make you stronger."
Then tell me wise ones, why is it,
that I am weak as a newborn kitten,
when I should be Hercules by now?
No, I didn't think you would have
an answer for that.

Very powerful write Barbie... Unfortunately I have no pearls of wisdom for you, just a shoulder to lean on and ears to listen with if you need. Henry

definitely reached me with your thoughts here... it is crazy at times what we are made to go through, and then adding the input of other people's opinions on pain in life does kind of add extra weight to the feelings that already have a strong crushing power of their own... well it does for me and im thinking it does for you going by your words here... very nicely written, the emotions come through strongly... ive pondered the same things, so this definitely hits those spaces in me id just sooner get rid of if i could... itd be nice to make sense of stuff like this... thanks for sharing :f hope all is well *hug* xx

I hate it when sometimes others tell you, that you will be all right~ Because somewhere down deep inside, you know that you will have to go thru a small hell to get all right~ Chin up, Barbie, the year is new and maybe?????
