Don’t Ever by Laine Parsons


This afternoon, I was starting to feel depressed again, and was looking in my closet for some DVD’s and a journal of mine jumped out at me. Most of my stuff was flooded with Hurricane Harvey. Pissed off, I picked it up and was going to throw it back into the closet or in the trash.

For some reason, I guess to decide whether to keep or throw it since it was from 1991, I opened it up and God knew just what I needed to be reminded of!

My poem “Don’t Ever” was in it. Steve S. gave me a copy of it years ago, and it was so special that I saved it. God knew that it was exactly what I needed to read. So, I am sharing it with you all.

“Don’t ever try to understand everything

Somethings will just never make sense,

Don’t ever be reluctant to show your feelings

When your happy give into it,

When your not live with it

Don’t ever be afraid to try to make things better you might be surprised at the results

Don’t ever take the weight of the world on your shoulders,

Don’t ever feel threatened by the future take life “One Day at a Time”, 

Don’t ever feel guilty about the past what’s done is done learn from your mistakes that you have made

Don’t ever feel that you are alone. There’s always someone there for you to reach out to,

Don’t ever forget that you can achieve so many of the things you can imagine,

Don’t ever stop loving,

Don’t ever stop believing,

Don’t ever stop dreaming your dreams.”

Luv ya’ll, “Downtown” Sally Brown, Feb. 2, 1991
