All Out
I’m all out; Out of words,
out of tears-
Out of thoughts of why-
of all the tragic happenings
Through out the years
I’m all out; Out of ways,
out of places to turn-
Out of soft and gentle voice-
I’m out of ways to cope,
and the truth is beginning
to really burn
I’m all out; Out of patience,
out of time-
Out of expecting better-
yet needing more-
Out of pleasure for purpose,
I’m out of need for living in a
world that never rhymes
I’m out of sync; Out of warmth,
All for me lies cold-
Take the bareness of the
pastures of hope-
And ripen them with
colors so bold
I’m all out; Out of tears;
I’m all out of words-
I’m all out of silence,
and fears-
Rise up; Rise up from the
Rise up from the pain-
Rise up and dry the tears-
For unless something changes,
Tomorrow will bring more of
The same

I love this. You certainly made a great life change here. Your expressions are to live for and cherish, Lisa. I hope you will continue to emerge and spill these words, and give these tastes of your beautiful self. Thanks for this, Lisa.

WOW!!! I guess we all feel this way sometimes, but I have to believe that God wants us to be happy and because of that belief I also have to believe that things will get better even when they are at the lowest tide. Well stated write.

(((HUGS))) love and prayer, Lisa - I'm about all cried out, until tomorrow's news - sad. Powerfully, painfully penned admission that we are not as strong as we hope we'd be - well done.

Sadly, many will relate to what you express within your verses Lisa because it is honest and very real and very humanly true in this life/world. Thank you. Love, peace, and my very best wishes to you,

Me too, Lisa and I am all out of nice, to boot. It amazes me how so many people just don't get it. It takes so little to be kind yet so many never even try. Sigh...I suppose I am glad to be approaching my golden years instead of just starting out on my life's journey. Well written, Lisa, and a pleasure to read you again.
Take care,

Great capture of the emotions and feelings we all experience from time to time but always find our second wind to keep on looking for the end of the rainbow...

I'm all out, too, Lisa; you're certainly not alone! God help us all!!

(((HUGS))) and much love, your friend in Burleson, Karen Lynn. :( *tears!*
