Damaged Soul/Kindred Spirit

Listen, Young People Out There! YES YOU!! Please Read.

Listen Young People Out There!! Yeah YOU!!


This life is tough, Believe me I know,, 

You lose, You can't fight, It does blow,,


Yet I'm telling you, That you must go on!!

People love you, and will miss ya, if you're gone,,


My Lady fought disease till she couldn't anymore,,

Since she passed, My life, Well, my life, I just deplore,,


Yet she was the smart one, and the one dying,,

She made me promise to live on, and I'm not lying,,


You see, I miss her more than anyone I have ever known,,

I still cry nearly every day, I just hang my head, and moan,,


But if I can keep this promise to her, and live,,

Then you must, Because you have so much to give,,


You all have something, A gift that all too few possess,,

You have passion, and a gift in writ, and I won't accept less,,


Keep writing, Its good therapy, and I am pleading with you,,

If so, I'll keep reading your work, and lovin it, I promise to,,


Together we can chase those demons back into the dark night,,

Live on! I insist that you do! I really NEED to read what you write,,


Without you I'd have to take up video games to fill the space in my mind,,

How pathetic is it for a cowboy to have Mario kick his ass all the time?


If you don't write, Then what the hell am I supposed to do each day?

I love what you write, and it keeps me from going nuts,, Okay??

              Giving to others until we have nothing else to give - a lesson from Christ himself.

              • DJJABS

                Pure heart. Thank you, I know that's not an easy life, I hope those happy memories keep you both dancing in side.
                I tell you and all openly, this morning I was up at 5am to take my kids back for school (1 half hour drive), to see my ex-wife looking at me wishing I was not around (yes she's tells me too). On the drive back I cried on and off just stopping outside my first job.
                Yesterday was also trigger day for me, as an event with my partners teenage son set off a traumatic childhood memory.

                I'm still finding tools to hand life
                Writing has always been
                For the first time I'll truly seeing
                My damage soul is not alone

                Thank you for being part of it!

                • Damaged Soul/Kindred Spirit

                • kit

                  Thank you for writing this. Made me happy and slightly sad, but honestly mainly happy. Made me feel important and like I matter, so thank you, thank you so much.

                  • Damaged Soul/Kindred Spirit

                    You DO matter. Don't let anyone convince you otherwise. I wrote it because you matter. I would not have bothered if I believed that you didn't matter. I do not give a hoot what anyone else thinks or says,,, You most definitely matter.

                    • Damaged Soul/Kindred Spirit

                      I love your poetry as well. Please keep writing because I love to read what you write. You are very gifted, are you aware of that?
