Believe

Unable to sleep, tossing and turning
Soul on fire and constantly burning

Thoughts and drama consuming
Fears and worries slowly resuming

Feeling totally frustrated
Anger being illustrated

Nothing being accomplished
Sanity being diminished

Wishing I would have prevented
And first of all repented

Prayer could have preserved
Energy could have been conserved

So, why stress over what cannot be controlled
Be patient and watch what unfolds

Everything is a part of His ultimate plan
Continue to trust, even if we don’t understand

Believe in His word and subdue
Things will work out as they are supposed to

Jenn, I am glad you wrote this poem, it was the best way to handle that anxiety, in the face of all the other choices.

Nice going!

This is a great post J, but thats a serous ticket man even if you go to court it cant be thrown out, i got about 3k in speeding ticket and handicap parking last year and i am not planning on getting any more to make NYC rich off me.

All the best keep positive.

Ms. J, that was beautiful and so fitting for what had taken place. I think that this could be what all of us need to start a wonderful day. "Thank you" for posting it and being so candid with your thoughts. It is refreshing.

Very happy for you on the relationship and what it does for your life.

Have a SUPER blessed day!

XOXO,

Don't you hate it when you have a nice day one day and then it all gets rained on the next day ?

In 2007 I managed to get four tickets. But luckily I managed to get them dismissed too.

E's said...

Little shit tries to throw you off course when things are going good...Fact of Life. Like Senorita said, fight it, maybe get it dismissed. Nice poem btw:)

JStar said...

Yes Senorita, I NEVER got a ticket until last year so now its 3 speeding tickets and these now... :( Yea I am def going to court...But I am not letting it alter my happiness...

You know E, but thats only if you let it...thanks :)
