I was listening to Jada Pinket? Smith, the actress, and Wil Smith's wife, talking about this same subject. She stated that we shouldn't be ashamed but put it out and try to help others. At the time I was roasting with one of my problems. Anyway it motivated this poem. My problems are old news, even though they roast me at times, the heat in the oven only gets but so hot. I learned how to climb out and cool off.

Show me one person,
not going through the ringer,
I'll show you Whitney Houston,
the rich singer.
She and her husband suffer from,
more than the bee stinger.
Some get it worse than others,
others get it worse than some,
Either way,
it can freeze a soul to numb.
God knows this too,
His mercy sent Jesus through.

What I'm going through,
use to churn my hue.
I've learned too accept,
overcome and adapt.
It's not the ringer,
it's how we handle the stinger,
that distinquishes,
clears the mind and relinquishes.

But we tire,
under the heat of the fire.
The flame burns hot,
can cause a heart and soul too rot.
Many become the walking dead,
others recognize the zone red,
lift their souls higher instead.
