PostSubject: A poem i read online   Sun Oct 25, 2009 1:12 pm

This is a poem i read online, and it is Extremely sad and almost made me cry Crying or Very sad

A child remembers a horrific incident that was instigated by child abuse
Speechless
©️ Kyra Lee
My Name Is Sasha
My Sister Is Leigh
I am six
And she is three

Our dads always mad
He screams and he yells
I don’t think he likes us
It's Easy to tell

Mums only kind
When dads not around
And when he is home
She hardly makes a sound

Mums always out,
Never home
Dads always drunk,
And always alone

As soon as we hear
Those jingly keys
We run and hide
We run and plea

We find a place
And curl up tight
I hold her hand
And she holds mine

And soon enough
Dad then walks in
Don’t make a sound, don’t say a word
I pray inside, deep within

But Leigh, she cannot help herself
For the pain is just too much
"O-God" she yells
"Why are you so mean?"

He doesn't like what she has said
And beats her even more
And with one last hit
Hard and strong, he pulls away and watches

She takes one last Gasp of air
Our hands still holding
Then falls to the ground where I sat
And doesn't move a muscle

I stare at him
My eyes so blue
He looks at me
And yells "O you!"

"How dare you
Make me so mad
This is all your fault
Go cry be sad!"

My name is Sasha
My sister is Leigh
I am six
And my beautiful sister was only three

That day my Daddy
Murdered her
My best friend
She was my world

We stuck together
Through thick and thin
But now she’s gone
I’m lost within

When I was six my sister three
My Daddy murdered Leigh
Since that day I have not spoke
For it's speaking that made her die.

ok no more sadness Sad



Change Your Thinking

It will take just 37 seconds to read this and change your thinking.


Two men, both seriously ill, occupied the same hospital room.



One man was allowed to sit up in his bed for an hour each afternoon to help drain the fluid from his lungs.



His bed was next to the room's only window.



The other man had to spend all his time flat on his back.




The men talked for hours on end.

They spoke of their wives and families, their homes, their jobs, their involvement in the military service, where they had been on vacation..



Every afternoon, when the man in the bed by the window could sit up, he would pass the time by describing to his roommate all the things he could see outside the window.




The man in the other bed began to live for those one hour periods where his world would be broadened and enlivened by all the activity and color of the world outside.




The window overlooked a park with a lovely lake.



Ducks and swans played on the water while children sailed their model boats. Young lovers walked arm in arm amidst flowers of every color and a fine view of the city skyline could be seen in the distance.




As the man by the window described all this in exquisite details, the man on the other side of the room would close his eyes and imagine this picturesque scene.


One warm afternoon, the man by the window described a parade passing by.


Although the other man could not hear the band - he could see it in his mind's eye as the gentleman by the window portrayed it with descriptive words.



Days, weeks and months passed.

One morning, the day nurse arrived to bring water for their baths only to find the lifeless body of the man by the window, who had died peacefully in his sleep.


She was saddened and called the hospital attendants to take the body away.



As soon as it seemed appropriate, the other man asked if he could be moved next to the window. The nurse was happy to make the switch, and after making sure he was comfortable, she left him alone.



Slowly, painfully, he propped himself up on one elbow to take his first look at the real world outside.
He strained to slowly turn to look out the window besides the bed.


It faced a blank wall.



The man asked the nurse what could have compelled his deceased roommate who had described such wonderful things outside this window.



The nurse responded that the man was blind and could not even see the wall.


She said, 'Perhaps he just wanted to encourage you.'



Epilogue:

There is tremendous happiness in making others happy, despite our own situations.



Shared grief is half the sorrow, but happiness when shared, is doubled.




If you want to feel rich, just count all the things you have that money can't buy.




'Today is a gift, that is why it is called The Present.'




The origin of this letter is unknown, but it brings good luck to everyone who passes it on.

I got a email about this.

Electricity crisis..., power cuts,
We are sweating badly and go nuts.
We use electricity to switch on the AC,
But we never switch it off as we are too busy.
When the bill comes, which is very high,
We say to ourselves, "I didn't use it this much, did I"?
Of the problems it causes... people aren't aware,
So of its ill demerits, beware!
Let us strive to save electricity,
So that people can sleep in peace in the whole city. Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad Sad
