Sometimes I Cry – Author Nolan P. Holloway, Jr.


Life as the weather moves to a new season

Summer leaves before saying goodbye

Her warmth and light fades away

Thoughts of sunshine brings rain of tears


My sadness rises and I cry


Uncontrolled and through my humanity

I know my Father wants me to be happy

But the burden of life wears on me

Where I am in this life, disappointments and regrets


So I cry


From deep inside myself

A flood of memories shakes me

Financial handcuffs imprison my dreams

Reaffirming I pray


Faith wipes away tears

Prayer soothes my mind

The Spirit fills and feeds my soul

Again I start to cry


Tears of joy because of blessings received and ones to come
