Living It

Cold, shivering, sobbing The child rested in the caresses of trial Born to the world’s cruel malice Foreign touches leave her breathless Distress…confusion…adaption Grateful for the chance to live Bitter for what was and what could never be seen Dirty…so dirty Little hands that have been places no child would wander Trapped in an imagination only formed By reality’s free-fall… Into familiar, stark waters Deserving it was out of the picture Living it was ever her fate Something told her there was more Beyond that strong, wooden door

    Dear Laura - "Something told her there was more" Just a chance, just a chance. So many don't know that or come to find it. Soul stretching. love, Kathy

    I love the dread of what's beyond that door. But I'm scared of where your mind goes, or is it mine?

    What a roller coaster. I had to read this a few times to wrap my head around this deeply significant, yet, layered message. Powerful work.
