Left in Doubt

Here I am wondering…
What if?
Why did I just leave things to doubt?
Why did I just walk away?

  3. Hi Shainbird!
    This is a great poem of your thoughts about certain feelings that we all have. Love for ourselves & others will help to take away that part of your life that makes you feel that way. giving these feelings to God will take the pressure off you & let you bring better times to those that you feel are difficult. Health is also a good part of this & stress is sometimes our motivation to feel the way we do. Have been getting new posts put on & doing a lot with my time which helps me get through the worst part of my days. Come & read my posts & learn more about health & its importance!
