She could never say she loves me
Believes our time has passed
Still I’ll reveal what’s in my heart
And get some song and dance


Tears Inside

Then there’s that fine line
History hurt
More strength from failed reply
Never give up, will always try
Even with tears inside
You’re not qualified

Burning canvas
Sat in silence
May be hell
Still want to fight this…

So sorry, Story
Wanted untold
Judgment passed
Buy what’s been sold

Draw Strength From Rejection!

Don’t ever let anyone tell you
You’re not good enough
Do they merit a clue to what you’ve been through?
Even though they believe
They know a thing or 2 about a thing or 2

When times got tough
Mired in countless ruts, depressed & rattled
Yearning heartrending personal battles
Death of loved ones
Break ups, lost love
Wondering if there’s a God above

Your self cried out
And only you know about
Those deepest moments when resolve shone through
Yes, that indeed was you

Never hold back
As a matter of fact
Draw strength from rejection!
It’s fuel for positive reflection
