My World


My world has turn so very dark

Arms gently pulling me inside

Accepting for a person like me

To forever more reside


The other world has no place for me

I’m a loser, unwanted, a waste

Replace me with someone of value

That will not just take up space


This person that will replace me

Will accomplish so much more than me

People will see how really stupid I was

They will finally see what I see


The day will come

And I will be gone

I wonder what people will say

Will they even remember who I was?

Or will I just be another name?

Wow that went right to my heart. It made me feel sad yet I liked it so much. I am happy you had the courage to share that. I am a musician at heart but all I can write is guitar stuff.

Hi Terri,
I have few words to write here, but from what i just read, i think you are more valued than you think, and hey aren't we all stupid sometimes, though funny how it seems to be in someone elses eyes to start with, life may not be what you expected, but sometimes if we look hard enough we can find it's better, your words in your poem may be the key that unlocks someones life, and isn't that something wonderful, something precious and something very very valued, remember that many of the great people we read about who changed the world in good ways were considered stupid and not of value too, in their day, prove them wrong Sadgirl because the other side of that is happy girl, keep on writing, keep on putting it here,

            Hi Terri,
                       You are very talented with your poetry writing.  It is a gift you should be proud of.
                       We have corresponded previously, quite a while ago. Did you file for divorce?   How is your son handling the change?
                      I left my house.  It was to toxic of an enviroment.  Didn't realize how much negative energy was being drained from me.  It is comforting to be able to go to sleep and feel peace.
                 need to start walking every day.  in the past it has helped me get through tough times.  However, i think I am much stronger now to be able to handle the divorce process.  Our house is under agreement to be sold.  I am most upset about selling the house.  I am emotionally attched to my beautiful flower gardens.  we are temp. staying with relatives.  Lucky to have that option.  am ready to find my own place.  kids haven't settled in cause its not "ours"
                 Hope work is better for you.  I am trying to land a fulltime position soon.
                                           Each Day A New Beginning

Hi Laine,

Yes. My divorce will be final 4/26. We had 50/50 custody set up for our son and still do, but he now lives with his dad. He didn't like my rules. His dad has very few. I pick him up everyday from school and help monitarily as well as with things he needs, rides, etc. My daughter is graduating from college and moving out. It is much more peaceful here as well. No yelling, the holes in the walls are all fixed and painted by me. I am really lonely and having a tough time since my son moved out. I have applied for a promotion at work, have not had the interview as yet.

It is very nice to hear from you. Please keep me updated
