Maxine Smith


T racing down my tender cheeks

E motion  drops filled with defeat

A nguish from inside pours out

R ivers flowing uncontrollably

S orrowing storms still ahead of me



    GOOD EVENING MAXINE - ANGELA HERE - Thanks for sharing your Pain. We FEMALES are generally more sensitive than MALES and never ashamed to CRY in PUBLIC - AMEN.
    We note the reasons for your TEARS - Defeat - Anguish & predicted Storms of Sorrow etc ! We are PRAYING that these will soon be resolved and the TEARS replaced with JOY - AMEN !

    Blessings & Peace to YOU & YOURS
    Love ANGELA & BRIAN 🧡💙🧡💙🧡

        A sensitive write Maxine.
        Meanwhile (me being daft) - Oohh, dry ya tears gal. I never knew me singing would cause ya such upset. I only said 'I'll sing ya a song or three'. Though that's enough to make anyone burst out crying! heehee.

          Haha thanks for reading Ochidee.

          Here's another thing - Ken Dodd only shed tears cos they found out about his non-payment of taxes! He was singing 'Happiness' before that - well, he would be - 'I'm alright Jack!'
          It's fraudulent - we can't condone it. Why should he get away with it?
