I Have Lupus

I Have Lupus

I live with an illness

Other people cannot see

I live in pain and fatigue

Often immobility

I live with an illness

Some people cannot understand

Because it cannot be detected

By the casual glance

I live with swollen joints

Bruising but first

I live with knowledge that

It can get much worse

My hair has fallen out

My eyes swollen shut

But I live with a disease

That doesn’t understand…enough

I am not alone in this fight

There are warriors like me

Who understand what it’s like

To have physical agony

I am a fighter now

I am a warrior because

If I stopped fighting

Gave it a pause

This disease would win

My valiance for naught

I am in this war

I never forgot

I was created from greatness

And greatness is in me

I will struggle with this thing

NO matter what shall be

Dear Trayvon

myraysoflight

Dear Trayvon,

I heard the news today. I would love to say that I was surprised, but I wasn’t. I watched everyday as the trial of your murder unfolded. I watched video recordings where your assailant said he wouldn’t have changed anything; that it was God’s will. I heard him say that that it was you that was stalking him; a thought that I find peculiar since you were on foot and he was in a vehicle. I also heard him say that he only shot you because you were beating him into the sidewalk; but I wonder how you would have been able to do this…had he not left his vehicle, as the police asked him not to pursue you. I watched George Zimmerman sit smugly in that courtroom, with no sign of remorse. One would think that even if he felt pressured to kill you…the reality that he…

God Also Loves You

God Also Loves You

 

She is every woman you know

Even if you don’t see it yet

She’s the girl in the check out

Whose eyes you’ve never met

 

She lives a life in silence

A life sentence so to speak

Some will say she is a coward

A shadow…she is weak

 

But I will tell you something

Her strength has no bounds

For we don’t know the terror

Happening when no one’s around

 

We don’t know the real threats

We don’t know the fear and isolation

We don’t know what he does

His self-proclaimed degradation

 

Yet she gets up every day

Covers up marks of his “love”

This woman you call coward

Lives in hell you don’t know of

 

But here she is daily

Smiling past the pain

And unless you can see it

Without giving her blame

 

There is just no cause

And I have no use

For the heart bruising

Caused by abuse

 

I have felt it too…it was mine

I wore my face of shame

I was left feeling guilty

As if I was the one to blame

 

It took a while then one day

My rainbow came shining through

God spoke to my heart…saying

It’s okay…I love you

 

Still in my mind I wore a badge

Why would you love me

I’m all used up and tattered

Nothing too special to see

 

And a great light came through

And shone upon my face

He said come to me child

He let me borrow His grace

 

From that day forward

My spirit it rose up with stride

My heart opened

My wings opened up wide

 

So fear not my blessed angels

Your cries have been heard too

I was sent to say this…

God also loves You

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2012 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The new Boeing 787 Dreamliner can carry about 250 passengers. This blog was viewed about 1,600 times in 2012. If it were a Dreamliner, it would take about 6 trips to carry that many people.
