You can keep your Top 40
Wear those $100 jeans
I see right through you
Just wanting to be mean

You smile to my face
Then stab me in the back
Spread my secrets for
Bread crumbs like a task

Do you love me or hate me?
I just have to ask
I can’t tell the difference
When you hide behind masks

Gossip and slander while
you say you’re my friend
I wish I had the answers
But you want to pretend

You love to criticize
Anything, everyone
I wish I hadn’t trusted
You in the long run

Do you love me or hate me?
I just have to ask
I can’t tell the difference
When you hide behind masks




Poker face

  1. Yes it would be so good Diana if you could get rid of all the ‘ugly’ by forgiving all those who hurt you as God tells us to do, instead of holding onto bitterness and resentment and giving Satan a foothold, forgiveness will bring healing and inner Peace and Joy.

    Matthew 5:43-45 Ye have heard that it hath been said, Thou shalt Love thy neighbour, and hate thine enemy. But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the Children of your Father which is in Heaven: for He maketh His sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust.

    Mark 11:25-26 And when ye stand praying, forgive if ye have ought against any that your Father also which is in Heaven may forgive you your trespasses but if ye do not forgive neither will your Father which is in Heaven forgive your trespasses.(KJV)

  2. I’m praying that the Lord sustains you. It sounds like your battle worn, and that is
    a frustrating and lonely place to be. No matter how much you try to dismiss it, it keeps nagging at you and
    you find you’re just too whipped to stop pondering the situation…….
    My prayer for you is this:

    Jesus You are the only balm that will heal over the wounds and spiritual bleeding that have been thrown at my sister, Diana. Please let her feel Your personal touch within and around all the circumstances surrounding this ordeal. Give her Your peace that passes all understanding. And please send angels to protect her from further abuse, while she takes the time to soak You in and breathe out all the ‘ugly’.
    We believe in You and Your precious blood. And we stand on MT. 11..where You tell us to rest in you
    and ask us to allow You to bear our burdens. We accept You and thank You for Your goodness.

    Love you, Ms. D.

    1. Thank you so much t – I really needed this. You are such an encourager to me. And yes – let’s breathe out the ‘ugly’! love you too, Diana

  3. Diana, I’m sorry I’ve been out of touch of late. Some 09/11? health issues, perhaps….
    Anyway I’m catching up rather late. Please just send me an email and I’ll start praying for you right away.

    Sorry to hear that something this hurtful has happened to you.
    You are my dear friend, and I want to be able to buffer you with prayer, when you need it.


    1. I understand. I am having a hard time too. I pray that the comfort of the Holy Spirit surround you and hold you you, Diana

  4. Diana, this is so real and powerful in that realness. Love and hugs. I read this scripture the other day and thought I would just pray it for you . . .

    Lord, You are Diana’s hiding place,
    You shall preserve her from trouble,
    You shall surround her with songs of deliverance. Psalm 32:7

    1. Thank you Debbie, yes! I need this today. I am just speechless. Numb. Tomorrow will be better. And yes, I will listen for those songs of deliverance…Thank you sis, Diana

  5. This hit me hard as I can really relate on such a personal level. Great writing combined with perfect photos = Bravo my friend!

    1. Thank you Dawn. Sometimes I lead with my heart, and where it goes it goes. I love, and I hurt, for the friendship I thought was real. Blessings to you, Diana

      1. Diana, I understand. I have always had a difficult time having true faithful female friends. For me it doesn’t ever work. I always give it my all and am the first to get hurt and crumble. It was never real. I know you are taking this hard, I can tell. Hang in there “real” will happen just you wait and see. Dawn

        1. You are real…we have shared love, and hurts, and pain, and prayers, and you have never judged me. I will always treasure you. You give me hope and water in the desert. Thank you my friend, Diana

        2. Thank you too Dawn. Hey, help me out. How do you deal with the “haters” and “doubters”? I have had a real challenge this week and I am not sure what to do, if anything…
