A song by me

(Posted as unfinished but just wrote verse 3.) My unfinished song which I wrote 2 years ago. Sometimes it takes me awhile to finish them but also I created a tune, chorded it and sang it.  Here she is..... Wished and Weeped She was imprisoned in a body of painNo longer rode those horsesnor hiked those woodsTravels by road, somewhere in the past, justa part of her former life So she cried, oh she criedand cried some moreShe believed in a God who healsshe begged, she pledyet the pain remainedWished and weepedwished and weeped forwhat was not trueIt was not true She was imprisoned in a body of painhowling from the cellgrowling from the cellHer world now starkComplete and total destruction, nowa ghost of her former world  So she cried, oh she criedand cried some moreShe believed in a God who healsshe begged, she pledyet the pain remainedWished and weepedwished and weeped forwhat was not trueIt was not true She was imprisoned in a body of painfrantically looking for herselfThe one snuffed outshall never be found in here, nota trace of her former self So she cried, oh she criedand cried some moreShe believed in a God who healsshe begged, she pledyet the pain remainedWished and weepedwished and weeped forwhat was not trueIt was not true  ~~Sherry

I understand! I don\'t do as much as I used to, but I force myself to be active sometimes and go new places and try things. I also love the Dale C quote. We really do control our happiness, and fewer other things than we usually realize.

Wow Sherry, I would love to hear you sing that!! Those are great lyrics. They truly speak to me. Now a shadow of my former self, imprisoned in a body of pain. You truly have the gift of words!

Thank you ladies. Most of it written at a time I could not accept this and I was in turmoil over losing \'me\' to a life of pain and suffering. True about our happiness too and wise ole Dale C. Donna maybe someday when I get my guitar repaired and start playing again I\'ll call you and sing all my \"pain\" songs. : )

Thanks Todd, I hope the needles make a big difference in the pain too. I have wanted so much to pick up that guitar and sing for a long time now but may have to try a different instrument. I\'ve been thinking of renting an autoharp or dulcimer which would be much more doable with the painful arms, hands and fingers. : )

I appreciated your lyrics. They tell a sad story that I wish you didn\'t have to go through. Sometimes pain can be the wellspring of creativity.

Thanks for finishing and posting this. Poetry and music is the pulse of our souls. Sometimes it\'s so poignant it\'s painful, but that is a true picture of life.

Hey oak thanks for stopping by. I agree about a \'true picture of life\'.
