It Breaks my Heart.

  Each time I realize that I have not had the freedom to fully follow my own heart it breaks my heart.

After five crawling decades
Filled with wasted years
I grope to find no reason
Beneath our unshed tears.
Inside a torturous prison
And too much cause for fear
I wait for promised freedom
To stop grinding it gears,
And for a Light to shine
Beyond judgmental leers
That aim to inflict more pain
With little poisonous spears.
I struggle to preserve myself
Until the Light draws near
And Freedom Truly rings
For all victims to hear.

Give us STRENGTH, God...to find our way through bullets hidden in microwaves, and COURAGE, God...to make a STAND that saves our lives and FREEs our land.

New Version of a Song I Wrote in the 1990s


My Prayer

God, if I have to feel this and can not fully cry,
Send a little Angel down here from the sky.
To give a little comfort. I can't do this alone.
Need Your Love here with me 'til I return Home.

If you can pardon - if you can forgive
What I have become here - how they make me live.
Let Your Light shine on me. I sit here in the dark.
Praying for Your Light now. . .even just a spark.

If I must experience darkness of Earth plain
Cast Your Light upon me so I can feel You again.

Those who try to help me, though some of them care,
These people just don't see all that's hidden there.
Where my soul comes from - the places I have been
Are too misunderstood here, so I cry once again.

I know I'll have to open to the depths of what I feel
But only freedom and Love can truly help me heal.

If I must experience my heart ripped to shreds
Hold me while I feel this. This pain is what I dread.
If I have to pay for the freedoms we have lost
Hold me as I suffer and dearly pay the cost.

If I must experience darkness of earth plain
Cast Your Light upon me 'til I be with You again.



Give us STRENGTH, God...to find our way
through bullets hidden in microwaves, and COURAGE, God...
to make a STAND that saves our lives and FREEs our land.
