72 Hours Left Behind


I had a series of unfortunate events these past 72 hours. I am greatful that I have been chosen to be some sort of light for others when they are in need of help. I got some really bad news that I just couldn't believe. A rape, a runaway, and several broken hearts. I ask myself why must this happen to the ones I love? So in turn I wrote this....

Thanks for reading....


Three days of news left behind

But linger deep within my mind

A series of unfortunate memories

Several tied up lines 911 emergencies


One call, Two Calls, Three Calls Four

What should I do, I ran for the door

Cries for help and a reach for my hand

I do my best to be utilized on this land


Runaways, rapes, and a broken heart

72 hours of tragedies, No button to restart

I wish I had the ability to make it go away

I am sorry I am human but I promise I’ll pray


Words are exchanged, In need of hope

It’s hard I know it is, grabbing on to this life rope

They say God Chokes but doesn’t strangle

Even if our life strings get all tangled


I am here to hold your hand as your friend

I promise I will be here until my end

I do the best I can even if my life isn’t perfect

Believe in the one who will never misdirect….

Saddle, I didn't know how to react but I just listened I couldn't be of any help more than just being a ear. I try my best in every which way to apply what I know and thats it. Thanks for reading my dear friend!!

Sorry that you find yourself in a storm. Sometimes an ear is the very best thing. And valued friend is the best title.

I am so sorry you and your loved ones went through all that in the past few days. You are a great friend to be there for them, I know it can be such a burden sometimes, and it can be hard, but someone has to be the strong one, sometimes its them being strong for you. We all go through bad things in life. and struggle and fight to survive the every day, and God puts obstacles in our way to make us stronger, to make us appreciate the good. to test us. and Honey I know You will pass any test he throws your way!

Sunshine, It felt like if it was call after call and txt after txt was nothing but bad news but I think I did pretty well and was there. I am sorry these things happened as well. But like you say things must happen as tests of faith nothing that occurs should happenn but sometimes it is a must to tell us to pump our brakes or see the flashing red light and hey more like a wake up call but I thank you for your warm and kind comments they mean a lot and also thanks for thinking highly of me it is truly a great feeling knowing I have people that believe in me.

smiles :)
