A Fool Such As I


Some people

Admire the work of a fool

But makes me smile


Why was I born with a different tongue?

Can there be anything meaner

Than the judge-mental fool

Just leave me to my sorrows

For there are no such thing

Like a better tomorrow

When waves of the battle

Starts moving along like the ocean

There is nothing so painful

When emotions becomes brittle

And the errors of life

Starts to haunt you

And when there are no more friends

Songs or instruments of joy

How can we expect forgiveness from above?

Some people admire the work

Of a fool such as I

And for those foolish fools just like me

I say thank you

For keeping me company

And for warming my heart filled with love

But for today

I have nothing more to say

Than I love You

Take care

I don't know who thinks your a fool Tinka, but if they do they surely don't know you;-)Chin up Sis. You are loved more than you know
and more than a lot of people!

I would be honored to be a part of your fool's parade, Tinka. Your words come from your heart and a heart doesn't know time nor does it realize our mistakes. The heart is a very interesting thing in that, no matter how much love you give away, it remains full of love.
Take care,

Oh Tinka, dear, there really is a better tomorrow. I believe that most of us have experienced times like you are going through. We are here to hold you up. You ask the question "How can we expect forgiveness from above?" Well,the answer is this. He loves us, in spite of anything and everything that we have done. He is wanting you to come to Him, holding His arms open wide for you. He IS the one that can fix things for you. RESTORE YOU. He wants to. We love you Tinka, please......don't give up! Love, Leah
