It Ain't Lonely No More

From Heart Talk by Jack Branch



It Ain't Lonely No More

People judge me for what I've done not for what I do
They say the consequences behind my actions are my fault and this is true
I've done a lot in life, some good and bad
But those were choices so why are you the one getting mad?
I get mad too but with people who's flawed not for the life they chose
or the consequences they cause
I don't like the ones that bring others down for the things that they doing
Who are you to get mad for the consequences I face, the only person on
this earth is me who can put me in my place.
You say you're disappointed. Okay. This I understand, I may have broken your
heart playing the cards that were in my hand. You say that you love me
but how is that so when you turned away form me in a dark lonely road?
So it's here that I stand on this road full of darkness
I'm not mad, I still love you regardless. Keep telling your lies but how you
love me so, just realize this road I'm on ain't lonely no more...

Jack, my name is Bill King but I write books under the name "Bill Ectric." I go to Saint John's Cathedral and Dean Kate told me about your poetry, which I really like. I've self-published three books. Self-publishing has the advantage of satisfying my impatience on getting published, but it has its downside, because there is no big publishing company to promote and distribute the books, so I have to do it on my own. I haven't really sold that many books. I'm trying to think of an idea for a book that might be accepted by Church Publishing. The books I've written so far are not really related to being a Christian. Don't get me wrong, they are not anti-Christian. I am a Christian but my books tend to be about the life I lead a long time ago, before I decided to live for God. Anyway, I wanted to say hello and offer to send you one of my books, if I am allowed to do that. Talk to you later,
Bill King
