Without hope,

 

We would have nothing to pray for-

 

Without faith,

 

We would have nothing to believe in,

 

Without life and death,

 

We would have nothing to look forward to-

 

Without God,

 

We would have been nothing at all.

Look At Us Now

LOOK AT US NOW

By Twinkle VanFleet

E and T October 26, 2013

Him and I, October 26, 2013.

 

To love is without judgement; you know this must be true-

 

No man can put asunder, forever- only you.

 

Only rarely did we struggle- until suddenly came at once,

 

But even after the fall, our love outlasted the punch.

 

You never had to prove to me- you always tried your best,

 

Your determination would bring us up- but no one would have guessed.

 

Tremendous is my faith in you- I’ve never been unsure,

 

I’ve never doubted your abilities, because i knew who you were.

 

Endlessly praying for your spirit-during the cold hard run,

 

Prayers would soon be answered, the challenges overcome.

 

Acknowledging determined ambitions- that were virtually always missed,

 

Accomplishments defended with pride- that some said couldn’t exist.

 

Content in regards to our future, my love for you- never in doubt,

 

Lips once quivering babbled words- will dwell in endless pout.

 

True love will never make judgements, trust and faith in the solemn vow-

 

Baby, did you know we would reach it- Te Amo, look at us now.

Lost Inside a Memory

 

LOST INSIDE A MEMORY

by Twinkle VanFleet

CloudsofHope

LOST INSIDE A MEMORY, WANDERING HELPLESSLY IN THE PAST-

INNOCENT AND CONFUSED, GROWING UP WAS MUCH TOO FAST.

LIFE WAS IN THE FAST LANE, PEOPLE FALLING DOWN-

INFLUENCE CONTROLLING LIVES, TEMPTATIONS LURKED AROUND.

UNSURE ABOUT TOMORROW, HOW COULD I HAVE KNOWN-

I WAS JUST A GIRL, BUT SOMEDAY I’D BE GROWN.

REALITY INCURRED MANY CHOICES, THOSE I WOULD SOMEDAY MAKE-

CONSEQUENCES WERE SURE TO FOLLOW, UP ROADS WHICH I MIGHT TAKE.

TRAPPED WITHIN THE MEMORY, I SEE A LITTLE GIRL I ONCE KNEW-

SAFE AND CONTENT FROM TOMORROW, OUR FUTURE HAD NO CLUE.

I MOVED ON WITH ALL STRUGGLES, SHE REMAINS PERFECT AND PURE-

I WOULD BECOME WHO I AM, TUCKING AWAY MEMORIES OF HER.

FINDING MYSELF BACK IN REALITY, WHO KNOWS WHERE IT MIGHT BE-

YESTERDAY, A SOUL DIVIDED IN TWO- ONLY THEN THEY BOTH WERE ME.
