To advice yourself
All by yourself
Because you love yourself
And you are yourself
And you care about yourself
Because you yourself…
…oh, yes you yourself
Sometimes know what’s best for yourself
Without hurting yourself
Or condemning yourself
But speaking the truth to yourself
And creating a better picture for yourself
After a nice date with God and yourself
So you sit under the mango tree all by yourself
And think for yourself
At the end of the day, the crowd will reduce…you’ll see for yourself
So, that’s why you must do right for yourself
Don’t fool yourself!
Please give some constructive advice to yourself
And create a better version of yourself
For the sake of others and most importantly, YOURSELF

-Signed by Yourself for Yourself

In the twinkle of an eye
The story changed
The story I loved to tell
The story everyone loved to hear
A storybook filled with pretty pictures
A story so perfect
A story so rare
Envied by all
In the twinkle of an eye
It all changed
You didnt wait for me to say goodbye
You destroyed my pretty fairytale
You revealed a different side of the story
I loved this story!
Dont you get it!
It was perfect!
How dare you ruin it for me!
Yes, I believe you
You saw it all happen
I was too little to remember
Too little to know the version you speak of
Yes, I believe your version
It holds facts
It sounds so much like the truth
But I dont like that version
It makes me cry
How dare you ruin it for me!
I like my version better!
Keep your facts!
Bury the truth!
Ive heard your story!
But I dont want it!
Keep it to yourself!
Tell it to your children!
I like my story better
Its beautiful and perfect
Ill rather have a smile each time I tell it
Than cry each time I tell it
So, be gone!
Keep your truth
Ill tell my story

 “Denial is the refusal to accept reality or fact, acting as if a painful event, thought or feeling did not exist. It is considered one of the most primitive of the defense mechanisms because it is characteristic of early childhood development. Many people use denial in their everyday lives to avoid dealing with painful feelings or areas of their life they don’t wish to admit.”

I still hear you sing
Sweet memories it brings
Your kind eyes filled with love
Sweet tales you loved to tell
To speak and make me smile
Night time jokes
Oh! I used to laugh so hard
And watch you laugh as the tears travelled down your cheeks
How time flies!
I just wrote you a poemlast year
Last yearCome on!
I used to wish you were here
I used to pray to have you back
Many wishes to hear you speak
My eyesthey leak
My throat hurts a bit
These are all feelings
They dont last forever

But the memories will never depart
Forever they will remain in my heart
Little precious stones memories are
Now we are apart
You journeyed home to meet The King
Your favorite songs I still sing
I no longer wish you were here
Im happy you are there
I dont see you now
It hurts so badI know!
But soon Ill see you again
Say hello to all our loved ones in heaven
Greet The King and stay happy
Its been eleven years
Ohthese tears!
So long Mama
Till we meet again
So long!
