My Daily Prayer

I thought I’d bring this back today. I need it. Sometimes the wrong people trying to attach to you can feel like an evil spirit. The incubus rears its ugly head again. What I was studying yesterday makes more sense. Let me tell you mental illness is no excuse for certain behaviors. Some people belong in a facility for life. Medication doesn’t help everyone. There are people who have issues & there are the criminally insane. Those who are a danger to society & themselves. I’ve tried not to engage these sick people, but they insist in attaching to me. Pray for me y’all. Some people are so sick they don’t know it. This to sound mean, but I have crazy people problems. I’m not talking about depression, anxiety, etc, some of which are situational. I’m talking about the kind of sick that will have a man & his family saying your meant to be together. I try to ignore them, but they won’t go away that’s how I ended up homeless. Since they couldn’t get up to my level they tried to bring me down to theirs. The only option I have now is to leave Dallas. That is a big problem that needs to be solved in big way. Quick. Fast. In a hurry. Running from crazy ~ Mariel Hemingway


Dear God: Please bless & protect those that bless & protect me (& their families/Loved ones). Thank you for sending them. Be a fence from those that wish to kidnap me ( I need to take that off. I don’t have to go anywhere I don’t want to. They can have as many people watch for opportunities as they want I’m gonna start taking pictures names are not enough. They could be aliases anyway. A strong, smart, stubborn, outspoken American woman who doesn’t take any mess isn’t a very good target!) & do me harm. Send provision. Continue to provide the strength, courage, & wisdom needed for the path I’m on. I ask for continued understanding to see things from more than my own perspective. I also ask for clarity to see things as they really are, not through my emotions. Increase my discernment. Heal the broken hearts, especially those who want to harm others, of all negative emotions & fill those spaces with Love, joy, & compassion so they can experience REAL happiness.
Lord I know there are things I don’t understand. There is pain people go through they don’t know how to deal with. I ask you to give them the strength to be able to handle it in a healthy, productive, & constructive manner. Please provide safe shelter for me while I’m on my way through to the life of promise ahead of me. Show me the way. Dismantle chaos where there should be peace. In the Lord’s name I pray. Some of my prayers will remain between you & I God. I’ll keep it that way.
Protect the good in all my family. Be a fence from evil meant to undo all the good we’ve created.
Restore all that was stolen. Plus some. This is going to be a good day, week, year, month, life (long & happy). I’m claiming it. You should too. Amen.
P.S.
Please get through to the minds of those former relationships I’ve told no. I mean it. Please protect me from them.
P.P.S PROTECT US ALL FROM THEM.
En el nombre del Padre, el Hijo, y el Espiritu Santo. AMEN. Si lo bueno del mundo es unido el diablo no puede ganar. Con todo de mi corazon. Buen Dia!
P.P.P.S. What you look like is only an indication. Race & nationality have NOTHING to do with it. Sometimes I have to watch you first. (I have to admit I’m VERY cautious around those who have done the most harm, & those who look like them. Once I know they’re gone. I won’t have to be so cautious.) Its ugly SPIRITED people I want to stay away from me. 0:-)
All those people can be draining. LOL. If too many with bad intentions are around. :O

What’s Meant To Be

Thought I was a weak one
Every thought I have I speak
I don’t understand the connection
I write to God as confession
I see the girl in the mirror now
Got lost in the crowd somehow
I’m not one of those other chicks
I think we’re broken & can’t be fixed
Gotta let go & make some room
Gotta get right
A new start is coming soon
I trapped myself in my own mind
Too dang busy loving to find the time
Time to see to wake up just listen
Wasn’t healthy in that mental condition
Can’t settle ‘cause those replacements are looking
Don’t get mad when one says that he took me
I bear my soul right here & I don’t care
Tried to hide me away I ain’t been nowhere
Holding out for what I deserve
I know my value trust me I’m worth it
Live on rock me as best I can
I’m not that girl
Can survive with no man
But I keep writing because it is good for me
Healing my heart. Becoming whole for what’s meant to be

They Ain’t My Dudes

The time is now
For me to stand
And choose who I will give my hand
Its time for happy
The lames keep tryna be my man

I’m chasing happy
Changing all the ways I’m living
You’re a leech
Living off the Love I’m giving

If you had a chance
And really weren’t feeling me
You missed you’re chance
My heart will have a victory

I need a man
Who wants nothing but to make me smile
Stick by my side
Maybe even have a child

The past is gone
My mind refuses those dark places
Tried to erase me
I can’t even remember faces

Listening for God
To tell me which one to choose
See I’m a Queen
Love me or hate me
Respect me cause I’m still your muse

I won’t let you down
I will not give you up
Gotta have some faith in the sound
It’s the one good thing that I’ve got
I won’t let you down
So please don’t give me up
Because I would really, really love to stick around

Heaven knows I was just a young boy
Didn’t know what I wanted to be
I…

I just watched this video again. Legends.

Just a little reminder. I Love this

The Monster From Back Then

I fell in Love with this monster
He was messing with my head
I fell in Love with that monster
He squirmed into my bed
I thought I Loved those monsters
Their Love was never true
I’m fighting a bunch of monsters
Is the last monster you?
I wasn’t awake yet
I couldn’t even see
I wasn’t awake yet
They said the monster was me
These two lips were made for kissing
Is it you I was looking for?
That man’s soul is missing
I’m not opening hell’s door
The choices are obvious
It’s gotta be you….
Or you
Just keep THEM away from me
