A childhood basked in the essence of sheer betray.
Through the eyes of innocence; love found a way.
Damaged, not completely broken by the memories.
I am the woman I am today, for what you did to me.
Abuse, pain and torture, from my lover yet I stay.
Through the eyes of madness; love found a way.
Amidst those eyes of hatred, a daughter it did bring.
Beautiful and dainty; a painful heart now proudly sings.
Vicious shots of venom; at my cost and my dismay.
Through the eyes of verbal abuse; love found a way.
Each poisonous word out of mouth, helped me realize.
The loving husband persona was only a crafty disguise.
A psychological diagnosis, as if I were on display.
Through the eyes of insanity; love found a way.
Creativity blossoming with the passing of each word.
Articulate with a passion for my life's saga to be heard.
A past full of trauma has made me whom I am today.
Through the eyes of victory; love found a way.
Life has many trials which all of us must endure.
But love will find a way to open those closed doors.
