Bolt

Written by: Carmen Castro

A bolt of lighting strikes my soul 
A burst of energy a sudden jolt 

It's like strong hands just hugged me tight 
Within my darkness I see the light
 
I mourned my pride a thousand times
In my own silence just like a mime

I tread in tears but did not drown  
My will wouldn't let me and strength I found  

Here I stand a rejuvenated soul  
Keys in hand, in total control
