                           I have been called quite vain,
            conceited, arrogant, boastful with too much pride;
because of my poetic words . . . 
And I have been slain by "his" sword,
                          time and time again;
"he" meant to destroy me and extinguish my light.
     Woes filled my heart,
             my suffering was grievous and full of anguish;
                          and I felt beaten down and drained,
            a cloak of doom fell upon me.
  I wanted to erase all my poetry wins;
            whispering-  Oh, what is wrong with showing pride ?

                         My head was full of evil fiends,
            with demons and devils wicked and so mean;
for a long while I just refrained,
oh, did abstain from writing poetry . . . 
                        Yes, I just ceased writing,
but it was difficult to hold back and not pen;
      and I could not do it.
            For I am addicted to writing my words,
                        devoted, obsessed with poem writing;
             I think it was predetermined at my birth.
  Written in the book of my life and by God ordained;
             I am destined to write-  no matter who likes it !

I had an ex who actually burned all of my poetry from 16-28....he didn't think poetry was anything to be proud of, and though i can never get them back, part of me is glad because i have grown, yet part of me longs to see what i wrote in my younger days....i really like this one :) hugs
