More Than Three Mr. Owl, More Than Three

It can take years of beatings
to provoke one honest sentence directed directly to God
and then,
still,
you may want to stop.

“I am a failure,”
I tell myself–
and, “it won’t be over soon because God is cruel.”
but then I don’t believe it…
well, not the part about God anyways.

How many times have you screamed,
“I just want it to stop!”

?
How many?

  1. In this one the pain is almost tangible…. Excellent writing, but I have to remind myself (the Queen of screw ups) that each time I think I’ve failed, I can now look back and see what I did wrong, why and re-evaluate so that i learn from my mistakes… So in my mind, what some call a failure, I call a mistake or bad judgement, cuz usually at the time it seemed like the right thing to do, but maybe that’s just my way of living with myself… 😀
