Poem: "Ask Yourself"

Updated on December 20, 2011

Ask yourself?

Should they

really be

Your best friend.

Try not to

forget where

Or even

how you met


Those fights

You are now


We all know

that sometimes

You feel


to strike

But you must

Ask yourself ?

In all your past


Has this kind

of reaction

Ever made

the situation


Ask yourself?

Why do you

think the rate

of divorce

Stays so high?

What manner

of human,

Really carries on

That way?

In answering,


What your

Mamma said:

You will win


And you will

loose some

But it is not


You win or loose.

You have to

Compare yourself

To all those

great ones

Who passed before

See how much

You have in


How you way

Stacks up!

Ask yourself.

Am I the one?

Who will see

To it that

This relationship

Holds up?

Am I the one?

To make this

thing last?

Hoping that

after it Is all

Said, and done

I will not

Have to hang

my head

in shame

My Mamma

Is the best coach

There is .

She said:

It is how I play

My game.

Ask yourself

What’s worth it?

And what's not!

The path

You will take

To get to your

promised land.

And the path

that you know

You will not!

Be sure that

you put the

Most High God

In everything

Even while

Knowing he is

already there.

Help yourself

To use your head

So as the

need arises

Always call on God

Through your faith.

If you are sincere.

I guarantee you.

That he will

Show you

that he cares.

Ask yourself

Is it really

worth it?

That negative


You are thinking

About doing.

Ask yourself?

      Thanks as always dear Caroline.

      If you have traveled a road that has its fair share of hazards , being a friend of mankind it seems within proper judgement that one shares his experiences, because after all: "

      The experience is only the experience one experiences when one experiences , the experience."

      We all don't have to experience the pain , if someone could warn others of the hurt.

      For you "AE" you have said so much in all areas, I can always look to you, that's a great blessing. Without any effort you encourage me, you have graced me with your honesty and unselfishness.

      You have represented HP in such a way that , that money cannot, be suffice as any thanks.

      Most of all you have shown the beauty that experience gives, that's priceless.

      My sincerest regard and thanks.

      Thanks Brian. It gives me great inspiration, and even greater encouragement to continue posting here. It's really for the benefit of all those lovely people that I have met since coming on here .

      This here is not for money because as you will see most will starve, but I believe true writers are people with great heart , something to say and share , and am grateful for this venue. And then the beautiful stories and true experiences that you send out and more . I thank you for reading and enjoying as I can see through your comments, it's my sincere pleasure to be of any type of inspiration or encouragement.

      Give Thanks .
