don’t you weep

when times are bad, and you feel down…

when times are bad, and you feel down…

don’t you weep!

when you feel alone, and there’s no one around…

don’t you weep!

when the love of your life, has moved on…

don’t you weep!

when someone dear, passes on…

don’t you weep!

when strangers criticize, the way you look…

don’t you weep!

when your family gives, less than they took…

don’t you weep!

when you want to do right, but you do everything wrong…

don’t you weep!

when god fills your mind, heart, body and soul…

weep child weep!

Fulfill Your Purpose

“Fulfill your purpose first by worshipping God, then be fruitful in every other area of your life. Such as using your gifts to bless others, being excellent at work and touching the lives of the people around you. Multiply good works, so that others around you can see them and glorify our Father in heaven.”

i do not remember who wrote the words quoted above or where i even read it, but a long time ago, i wrote it down (paraphrased i think) on a piece of paper and from time to time while rambling through old unfinished manuscripts, i may come across this small tattered note as it touches my heart and caresses my soul like it did today :), i urge you who is reading this to receive this message, utilize your talents and pass the knowledge on.

thank you for reading! follow my blog to get a heads up on what i post next…see what i did there.

peace, love & melodrama
