Frozen tears
I stepped back to look at things
and didn't like what I saw
All my hopes and dreams
washed away.
I caressed my frozen tears
for they were permanently there to stay
even though I would like them gone
they refuse to go away.
So I took the time to hold them close
for they are now a part of me
Frozen and attached
there's no way to set them free
Things have taken quite a turn
not for better, but for worse
It's so hard to throw away these feelings
for they are part of the curse
So I have accepted what is and what is not
frozen tears are mine now
belonging to the feelings within my heart
together they get along,

The greatest pain we suffer in life is through enexpected expectations. Every person has their own path to walk through life and in my belief system they chose that path before they came to earth. It's torture as parents to witness our children seemingly heading for disaster but we simply do not know where they are heading as their story is not finished yet. He came and although not as you would have wanted...I have no doubt that Jesus would not be offended.

I do understand though Helen but you need to take a back seat.

This is so heart felt your beautiful words just touched my heart I have the same problem with one of my boys I just pray everyday he will snap out of it and I let him know that I am there for him when he is ready for help. Loved reading everyword of this

The fact that your son was there shows he still has a sense of family and of doing the right thing. His attire may not have been appropriate, but he was there. In some small way Helen, you were a family for that day and I know in your heart, frozen tears or not, you were happy to have them all in one place.  Henry

It is hard to face uneven situation, particularly from the family members.. Anyway, we must get ready for each and every things that may either be the pleasant or unpleasant... Nice description of spontaneous reactional feelings....

Take heart from the fact he was there..He still has something within him that is crying for help.

His clothes aren't important only to those who didn't see the significance that he WAS there.

Chin up,  try taking him somewhere on neutral ground for a chat and time to sit quietly ..ask him to open up and NO matter what is wrong be loving towards him even in the telling Thinking of you Connie/L

I agree with Steve...and you  can pretty much book on what he says...He showed up, and that means he cared...but I know how you  feel about his appearance. My heart aches for you as a mother, wanting your  son back to the happy, handsome, healthy young man he used to be...

Keep praying for him...prayer is a powerful weapon against the evils in this world...

There is something good inside him if he showed up.  Well written and very real.

Your son loves his sister beyond all worry about his appearance and

showed up for the babtism.


That in itself is a something on the positive side.


I have compassion for you dear one.

The cold acceptance of the situation comes through clear in your writing. Sadly penned, but taps into the essence of the feeling, so well done.


Although a sad work, it is well done.
