But it is times like these that God takes you in His arms and tames your wild mind and assures you, you are never alone.
If these walls could talk,
you'd know my body is dead,
my mind has been taken over,
that's why I am so scared,
I can't control it,
anger is making me blind,
I've been left here on my own
chained to a hate of some kind.
If these walls could talk.
If these walls could talk,
you'd know about my fears,
about all those nights I screamed for help,
about all my fallen tears.
You'd know about the demons
haunting me at night,
you'd be able to help me
keep my fire alight,
if these walls could talk.
If these walls could talk
they would say that it's all right,
God sends His angels
to look over me at night.
They'd encourage me,
say though I am alone
it doesn't mean I‘m on my own.
He watches me, from above
and showers me with all His love,
if only these walls could talk.
Knowles, known for her provocative clothes and choreography, had been scheduled to perform at a Kuala Lumpur stadium Oct. 25. The show has been postponed to a future date to be announced shortly.The postponement is a decision of the artist and has nothing to do with other external reasons. to say whether the decision was prompted by criticism from the Pan-Malaysian Islamic Party, the country's largest opposition group, which has called for the show to be scrapped because it would promote "Western sexy performances."
Knowles also canceled a planned performance in Malaysia in 2007 following protest threats by the opposition Islamic party. At the time, her talent agency said the show was called off due to a scheduling conflict.

I think it is not only rude to the cashier....but I think it is rude to subject everyone everywhere to conversations people are having on cellphones.
When one is speaking on one's phone, one may not realize it, but the truth is that the sound of a voice carries.....unless you are a physician taking care of an emergency call from your office regarding a patient....there is little else anyone else wants to have your conversation about held publicly in the middle of shopping, church, movies, wait lines, restaurants...anywhere...
I have stood in line behind people who are unloading their baskets with one arm....because the other arm is so busy holding onto a cellphone...then waited to pay while this person...considerably slowed down because they won't hang up long enough to handle the transaction in a way courteous not only to the cashier but to everyone else waiting in line behind them...
...I wish they didn't ....and I think several people are simply sick to the back teeth of dealing with people on those danged phones creating problems for everyone around them by doing so. And, basically, yes....if you are on your phone, do not expect a cashier, clerk, or anyone else in the world to stand and wait on you to finish.
Either get out of line...go outside...do anything except subject the rest of us to your conversations.... When you are ready to transact business, turn your phone off, transact your business...then leave.... Once you get outside turn your phone again....and then turn it off before you start up your car...l
