Its Called Life

I thought I was brave
I thought I was strong
I thought I could make it,
in this world on my own

I blocked the pain somehow,
for I had little ones looking to me 
they needed to be secure
and I did my best with a bright smile,
even though the years of pain my mother saw upon me.....


Somehow I was robbed,
He had me believing no one would ever want me
I could do nothing by myself
a controlling measure
His voice,
nearly 20 years later is still appauling to me

It robbed me of trusting anyone at all I once thought

Then to my surprise there was someone that wanted what was left of me

that shy, sweet girl so hidden by faded beauty until he carressed my hand

He told me he would always try to understand

and I deserved to be gently cared for, as he again stroked my hand

The tears began at the corners of my eyes
He smiled gently, as if he had already known me

I don't know how to go about saying,
 that I only have the courage to trust one more time

so heres the bits and pieces, 
the rest was stolen so violently all of those years ago
its a montage of memories of bitter and sweet
in this city, its called LIFE

    Strong, yet hurtful lines. I understand this. Life is never an easy city to live in. But, we can adjust & overcome, as long as we let our hearts be the sunrise & sunset across its landscapes. Nicely done!!!
