A Prayer For My Son From Mommy

29 Mar

I found this using “Prayers & Blessings Daily” for Android, iOS and Kindle Fire!

“May You be Strengthened With all Power”:

11 May you be strengthened with all power, according to his glorious might, for all endurance and patience with joy,
12 giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified you to share in the inheritance of the saints in light.
13 He has delivered us from the domain of darkness and transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son,
14 in whom we have redemption, the forgiveness of sins. (Colossians 1 : 11 – 14 – ESV)

These three books are a few of many that will always be on the shelves of my personal library that are relevant to my professional & personal life.

Poetry: Pay Away The Pain

18 Mar

By Veronica M. Benson

Pain 1
Pain 2

Are we expected to sit here
And be true to how we feel
While men run around wild and reckless

Thinking they can come back
Like they got it like that

With no regards
To the amount of pain he
Left on my heart

And deep down inside
No matter the level of pride
I know I want him in my life
But I lived a lot of days this way
So by now I’ll be OK

But since he’s
Trying to come back..
Well, he’s got to pay
That’s the truth of how I feel today

Upon his return
I want a ring for each finger that caught my heart before it hit the ground

For every stressful day I tried to hide
A dollar for every tear I cried

A car to drive away every bad memory
A shopping spree for every moment he was happy while he was hurting me

I want unlimited plans for hour long conversations I cried to my friends

A New pair of shoes every day, til I forget how he walked away

I want everything I can think of, til the things fill the void in my heart Then we can talk about being friends
That’s our fresh start.

The only real payment for pain in life is
Healing 1

Worthy 1


    By Veronica M. Benson

    I am just a girl
    Finding her place in this world

    I’ve been through it all,
    Trials big & small
    Unbroken from every fall

    I return.

    Just to learn,
    that I am deserving
    of everything good, that this life
    could offer me.
    I earned it. I’m WORTHY.
    If I would try to define my worth
    I deserve the earth
    and only a man who would walk it several times over to try and see me
    Even if he could be nothing more than a friend to me
    She’s worth it. She has purpose

    That nobody has lived before
    and that nobody can deliver her to, but the Lord
    She’s tried to be everything for everybody else
    now she’s going to be everything for herself
    Her time is now. For such a time as this.

    Prepared years; the best that will ever be
    Flourishes, shining, brightly, blooming from the ground
    surrounded, by enemies.
    Or anybody that appears to be a friend to me.

    I don’t want to hear “be humble,” I’m humble.
    And no more being Ms. Modest
    I’m just being honest
    I’ve taken a long test all this while
    and whatever it takes,
    I’ve proven that I’ve got it
    Nobody’s gonna take it from me…

    Or will be allowed to say they were with me
    when all along, their actions and words
    proved, you, were against me
    This is me.
    When I was about to run on empty,
    I had to lift me
    & fill me
    Pick me…up
    and save me
    So I pick me!

    She alone is WORTHY!

    Focused. Forgiving. (You’re forgiven.) Healed. Healing while healing. Aware of the power given into her hands.
    She’s ready. The world has turned & is waiting with her own place to stand.

    She’s been hurt on top of hurt, while she was hurting
    No amount of pain can contain her & keep her away from all that she deserves.
    Pain can’t define her worth.
    She’s WORTHY. Deserving.
    When you see her,
    You too, will know that she deserves it.

    I am WORTHY!

    She deserves all that is GOOD
    right from her Chicago neighborhood to Hollywood
    Whatever she does, wherever she goes, she could.
    She knew it before she got there.
    when she was all alone and no one else was there.
    She deserves to have it all!
    She should.

    No shame in her celebration
    No guilt for every moment she spent waiting
    Anticipating, chasing her dreams
    while holding in her screams

    All put up against her
    is working, for her good
    she worked it
    for a greater purpose

    and nobody, no honey, not even you
    can tell her better
    That she deserves it!

    She’s worth it. I DESERVE IT!

    I am WORTHY!
