Conflicting Emotions

There are times in your life,

times you’re overwhelmed

by joyous feelings, then

there are times in your life,

times you’re overwhelmed

by deep, dark, hurtful feelings.

 

There are times in your life,

times you’re overwhelmed

by the love you felt for your father.

There are times in your life,

times you’re overwhelmed

by the effects of paternal abuse.

 

There are times in your life,

times you’re overwhelmed

by the love of your husband.

There are times in your life,

times you’re overwhelmed

by the loss of your husband.

 

There are times in your life,

times you’re overwhelmed

by the guidance of your mother.

There are times in your life,

times you’re overwhelmed

by the loss of your mother.

 

There are times in your life,

times you’re overwhelmed

by the help of a friend.

There are times in your life,

times you’re overwhelmed

by the loss of your friends.

 

There are times in your life,

times you’re overwhelmed

by the birth of your child.

There are times in your life,

times you’re overwhelmed

by the death of your precious baby.

 

There are times in your life,

times you’re overwhelmed

by joyous feelings, then

there are times in your life,

times you’re overwhelmed

by deep, dark, hurtful feelings.
