Hurting Once Again - Poem by Faith Elizabeth Brigham

Lord, you know that I've been hurting.
Momma says it's growing pains.
Oh, you know that I've been hurting
Momma says it's growing pains.
Here I am a hurting, yes I'm hurting once again.


Well, I've been down to the river;
Lord, I went down there feeling fine.
Yes, I went down to the river;
Lawd, I went down there feeling fine.
But before I knew it, I was sitting there a crying.


Momma. said it just ain't easy.
Life's not always what it seems.
Momma said it just ain't easy.
Life's not always what it seems.
She said, 'You're just a poor girl with some crazy, mixed-up dreams'.'
