She Wondered

She wondered if she deserved it
That slap on the face
Had she stepped out of line
To deserve such a disgrace

She chided herself again
For letting feelings show
She thought that she was safe
But how was she to know

That life was a masquerade
And she always got the blame
Though others played as well
She always lost the game

She wondered if this time
She’d get pushed over the edge
She stood there for some time
Wanted to fly off that ledge

She seemed to be tough and strong
But inside fragile and frail
She had tried to end it once
But it had been to no avail

And now she came full circle
And cursed her foolish heart
She wanted to scream and cry
Of the world she’d have no part

She’d come out of her shell
Only to be abused
Maybe she’d crawl back in
She refused to be used

It was never a good thing
To wear her heart on her sleeve
Now she was left with anger
All that she could do was grieve

The lesson that she had learned
She would carry to her grave
Never let your feelings show
To your reason be a slave

As she wiped away her tears
She felt her weak heart harden
Only God could help her now
She needed grace to pardon

    Sometimes I feel like this, I don't know why we allow grace to slip away s easily.. I'm glad she found the grace again... Linda

    I think you wear your heart on your sleeve very well Auntie, and your wise enough not to harden, too much:) I don't like seeing women treated like this. Great poem, I don't know how you keep doing it. Take care, Richard

    To a certain degree I can see myself in the role you've created here. The kind of writing that grabs me, Eileen. Well done, my friend. :)
