Join My Fight

Trying to make you mine
Want you on my team
I need justices
Are you going to help me
I’m trying to live my life
But nobody seems to want
Help me
We need justices
The systems not for us
All I’m doing is, trying to live my life
So my question
Are you going to help me
Too many dying at home
Cause we not been treated right
When we come in
I need you on my team
I want to live.
You my choice
Please don’t let me down
I want to live
I heard you the one
That fight for us
I want to live
Can you be on my team

Day 22. It’s been a while since I did update on some of the stuff we, meaning other sickle cell patients go thru. It breaks my heart, read some of the treatment others get. Since changing my diet, my treatment has changed. It has got better, but at times I worry if I get the proper care I need when I go into E.R. anywho another story for a separate post. Just in case you wondering this poem goes with my life.

The Past

I don’t want a reason to feel…
I’m tired of going back and forth
About you.
With my heart.
I just don’t want to think about you at all
I want you to stay in my past.
Why why
Am I still thinking about you in my present?
I don’t want to think about you.
I don’t want to feel anything
When you come to mind.
I want you to stay in my past
Where all my mistakes live

Technical I’m not finished with it but wanted to get it up, while I have the time and strength to share. I wanted to share it last month since it was Sickle Cell Awareness Month. But you all know its every day for me… Do enjoy and let me know what you think. The poem says a lot, so many sickle cell warriors have died this year. We don’t have it easy when we go to E.R/hospital. Since so many don’t know what it is or what we go through. We get sent home in pain or mistreated while been in hospital. I know you all have read a few of my post, and know I had could not so good nurses and doctors. I’m praying for a cure for us.

Day 19. Something I wanted to repost again. I can’t believe I didn’t add a date it was written. Do enjoy and God Bless

Let Me Go

Let me Go
I just want to be free
To get some rest.
To just live my life
I’m tired of hurting.
I’m tired of the pain
Waking me up in
The middle of the night
Making it hard to move
I’m Praying to God
And hoping
I’m not going into crisis.
I don’t have time to be
Down in my body
Just let me be.
I got things to do.
Weather doing its thing
Bringing me down
All I want to be is free

A friend is you
Someone that’s there when you need them
Shoulder cry on
Someone you can vent/rant to.
I cherish you.
You have been there for me in my darkest hour.
I cherish you.
You there for me.
I’m there for you.
You are a friend

I cherish you
A friend is someone
Like you.
I cherish our friendship

I knew It

I knew it was the Lord on my side

I thank God for him

stepping in fighting my battles…

Where would I be without him?

I knew it was the Lord.

The way he heals me…

how he brought me out…

The way he protected me.

When I was near death…

I’m so thankful for how he

Watches over my loved ones

When I couldn’t do it on my own.

I knew it was…

The Lord On My Side…

Living With Sickle Cell Anemia

Hello and Welcome to my world. Today isn’t a good day. In a lot of pain and hurts to walk. I was hoping I wouldn’t have to make ER visit, but the pain has got the best of me. Make it hard for me to walk. Got to the point when I did get out bed, pain shot up and had to wait to it calm down some. After debating with myself I decided to go. Maybe with the help of my parents telling me to go before getting worse. Finally got dress, that took almost 25 mins since I was hurting. I had a long wait. I was praying wouldn’t be full, but that wasn’t the case. The pain was getting worse while I waited. Think about 2.5 hours or more before they call me to the back. I was glad to get on the back side where I knew to get better care. I had Richard who’s my favorite and know how to take care of sickle cell patient. I had a woman in register said she misses me because she used to see me so much. I thought that was funny, and told her I switch my eating habit and that has helped a lot. With the cold weather, we having made it hard to stay from hurting. I had good nurses. It truly helps when you have a good team helping take care of you. My counts want the best, and the retic count was high as well. I had three does before I was discharged. I knew I wasn’t 100 percent but didn’t want to be admitted. But the body was still hurting but did help to sleep majority the next day. I wasn’t getting much rest. As of today, it’s bn a week and day since her visit. I’m still not my best. I’m doing everything to keep calm and rest as much as possible. I refuse to go back, but if I have to go back. I might its been a while since I been admitted. Almost a year come in May. Living with this illness take a toll on the body and the person but as well as the family. Until next time hope everyone staying warm. God Bless

Love Thought

What a powerful message to not share with you all. It seems some of us make a lot of these mistakes when starting out and some still make mistakes even when been at it for a while.

As you all know I’m on My love Journey and still learning stuff every day. From what I been through to stuff I watch happen to people I love. Do share y’all thoughts with me.

Love Thought

Just because you’re single that doesn’t mean it’s due to your problems, just because they’re getting married doesn’t mean they’re getting blessed.

Wow messages speaks so much to me. The thoughts that runs through our mind when it seem like everyone around us is getting marry and having a family. And I’m still like woah when will it be me. Anyone else every felt like that?

Good Evening, I pray all is well and message speaks to someone soul/heart. God is truly good all the time. God Bless

My Love Journey P.2

I did a post earlier for my Love Journey and shared a song about How can we Mend Broken Heart. Funny thing, I may change sides along my journey because I’m learning new things about myself every day. And hey I’m a psychology major, so give me a break. Lol

Can we truly mend a broken heart? I mean really mend it? Will it always be whole or do we actually have to work at it long as we discover who they truly or. I have many poems that will make you wonder and many quotes and question that will be like umm maybe she got a point or you might be just as confused as I am. Hell, I don’t know.

  • One of my favorite statements came from my cousin a few months ago . How true could it possibly be? It takes a strong woman to love a torn man, but a stronger man to love a scorned woman; two strong-minded people can’t be together, because they will always be bumping heads. When you find the person who is weak in the areas where you are strong, strong in the area where you are weak, then that’s compatibility! This makes it a stronger relationship.

This lovely status caught my attention. Makes me wonder how true it could be. I done met a few men in my life that was either torn or broken whatever you want to call it. Maybe I was meant to heal him for another woman to deserve him. Maybe I was meant to get as close as I did with the next one, but not really have him as mine. I wish I had known that before I fell in love with him. The last one I didn’t give a chance because my heart was trying to come to the grip of losing the last one, that held my heart so tight, that made it so hard to walk away. So the next time one walks in my life I’m prepared, how about you? What’s y’all thoughts?
