Dont you ever give up

Dont you ever give up.      

sometimes you feel like lifes going beyond your sight
the darkness is surounding you long into the night
but with the coming dawn you still feel like an empty cup
and dispite the pain you whisper dont you ever give up
day by day you muddle on some days better then the one before
with bad days you feel like you cant even walk out that door
but then good days make you feel like youve done many pushup
trying not to fall apart you still whisper dont you ever give up
as the day draws to an end you realise your still standing tall
and thinking of all the bad and the good youve had over all
you know with all certainty that your not gonna letup
falling asleep you smile and are glad that you never ever gave up

Stronger then you think!

 Stronger then you think!        4/26/21


when you feel just like your all alone and its more then you can bare

the fight in you is all but gone and no one seems to be aware

and your feet are stuck in quicksand and you feel like you will sink 

but remember who you were born too your stronger then you think

as kids stupid stuff didnt matter none and we didnt take it to heart

but over the years its become so vast and its tearing you apart

and if you dwell on it any longer it will send you too the brink

i know that you will be alright cuz your stronger then you think

so when ever you feel like all is lost and you wont make another day

remember who's always watching over you the monsters kept at bay

next time that you feel like your on the edge i will be there in a blink

to let you know how much your loved because your stronger then you think

Her little head has a lot of imaginations,

From all the experiences she went through.

All the ups and downs,

She remained strong and happy.


No matter how hard he broke her,

She kept her head high

And focused at what matters most.

She’s like a soldier,

Brave, strong and resourceful.


Even if she has her friends and family,

She wants to be

That strong independent woman


No man will ever make her weak.

Be Strong!

Be strong like the Moai,

And fight for the truth fiercely so,

You are a lion at heart,

You must know!



Injustice will fly away,

Like the torn piece of paper,

During the cyclone!

You shall be the winner!



Falsehood never wins the battle at last,


It is meant to lose, meant to perish so fast!

These people wearing faces

Leaving traces, of no truth

Of all the lies that slide

Down their tongues; no couth


My ears ring in a rage

This war waging, inside

Stop your selfish craves

So we can coincide


Your sordid aura haunts

Straining to flaunt, with my light

No waves of illusion immerse

My bold, green armored knight.

*I Miss You My Love My Hero*


 April.18.2007 2:31am/December.24.2011

 Trisha Barrek Hopkins




I miss your gorgeous sight

When before I go to bed

I lean down and begin to pray

I'll remember the last thing you said

"My love I will be back soon someday"

That is then I fell to my knees and began to cry

I pray to God everynight 

My love comes back wishing he finds

His way back to my heart

Asking God our love that we have let it be 

God every moment my heart pleads

Don't let my love,My hearo from me part

Let our souls for each other continue to bleed

For our love has been strong since the start 


I miss my love so much

I want to feel on my face

His gentle touch

When he kisses me 

He does it so 

With love and at a slow romantic pace

It sets my worries free

While your always my sweet

Let God protect you with the angels above

While I sit here and wait for your warm body heat

Tonight when I enter the world of dreams

I will go to our favorite spot to meet


To look into your eyes and to feel your arms

Around me it feels real

You say "Next to me will always be your seat"

And then tell me 

"I am always in your heart"

No matter the distence no matter how far 

Please believe me please stay strong

Keep in your heart and wishing on that star

Together forever and always 

And back agian we belong

And soon my soul I will be back to stay

It won't be long

So please believe in what I say


You're my love, my hero

The one I will love forever 

My hate for you will always be at zero

We will always be together 

I will take care of you 

As you will take care of me 

And our love will always remain true

We will never let each other free

Because you are my love and you are my hero



*Only The Strong Will Survive*

Trisha M Barrek Hopkins

Leave me in heaven if i should die 
Help my soul if i shall cry 
When i fall help me shake it off 
Help me believe only the strongest will survive 
It s time to go 
Help me and my heart thrive 
Just ride with the flow 
God let me know 
Tell me my shadow will remain on the wall 
And when i look down at the ground it will still be below 
I will stay 
Try to stay alive 
Go out with my kids to play 
And be stronger then the demons i may hold 
Or The depressions and stress i may buildup inside 
And try to forget the evil I've been told 
And be able to see the crisp blue of the day 
I will try to not become greedy for gold 
Because Only the strongest will survive 
I will always protect my sacred ground 
For no one can destroy my will 
For each day will become the past 
And the power to live i have found 
My strength will forever last 
For i have no need for a fun pill 
For only the strongest will survive 
Leave me in heaven when i die 
Show me the way 
To save us all 
How to erase my darkest day 
Because i plan on standing tall 
We remain hand on hand 
There is a wonder in peoples eyes 
And always one set of footprints in the sand 
Even though i still hear the echo of my pasts cries 
The salty tears i once in awhile see 
Rolling down my face 
Trying to not believe 
My hearts moving at a faster pace 
As i begin to float upward toward the midnight sky 
Where in heaven im meant to rest 
Finally i am allowed to die 
Or maybe it s just a test 
God my be playing to see how far 
My will can with stand the cards i am dealt 
Or to see if my evil away will melt 
Because only the strongest will survive 
I do know i want to remain alive 
For i will protect my days i have on this earth for a very long time 
Because god could take me up to heaven in a drop of a dime

Life is particular -

It chooses the strong,

Holds them beneath it's wing -

Leaving the weak to struggle.

The strong sit up on their pedestals,

Taunting those souls,

With their heads hung low.

So many beatings in a life time,

And still the weak trudge on.

The strong raise their whips -

Another slash, another shot.

The weak fall lower,

Dragging their bodies through the mud -

Barely holding up their heads.

The waters come -

The tides swallow more pride -

Carrying it to the strong,

Making their immunity stronger.

The weak cry out, and claw at the waves -

They scream, 

Until the water drowns them out,

Pushed to the bottom,

And held down with the weight of their pain.

Suddenly, one hand reaches out of the sand -

Eyes pop open, and a breath is released.

Gripping to the ocean floor,

You see a body rise -

Behind it is another.

Tearing, frantically, at the sandy floor -

An army slowly rises,

Bodies with bruises, scrapes, burns -

Arms, covered in scars -

Legs, with the weight of the world. 

The weak grow strength,

And fight to the surface,

Breaking through the black waters.

Faces -

With battle wounds,

Reach their arms out -

With rage.

The strong in numbers, grow,

But are not of one.

Those born of strength begin to flounder,

As the weak masses grow stronger.

An uproar of pain escapes - 

The weak becoming the strong,

And the strong - the weak.

When I say the magic word, 

all of this can end. 


After the news I heard today, 

I know exactly where we stand. 


You won't even see it coming, 

It'll be a quick blow to the head. 


Was all this pain really worth it,

when you tried to lay in her bed? 


Even though I hate the bitch,

I'm glad she stood her ground. 


I wish I could have seen your face

when she "sadly" turned you down. 


Now everyone is talking 

you're the joke of the town


Where are you going to turn

now that no one is around?


None of this is my fault,

but I should have seen the signs.


Should have looked a little closer,

should have read between the lines. 


I thought we were in love

when I looked into your eyes.


But now I know it's true,

that even love is blind.
