Oh, shattered and broken after my husband's accidental death! My life was darkness and tears, I was in a pit of pain with high walls, and no hope- I lost my job and was collecting- welfare humiliated- I moved back home with Mom and Dad He died way too soon after the babies death! I wanted to be strong. I looked deep into my soul, and found nothing- even wished to end my life- to break free of the imprisonment. I wanted to cast off the cloak of death! Oh, just to end the captivity! And I dreamt of the sea, that blue chasm, always struggling, never surrendering seeking its path. And I listened and found deep inside of me a little bird singing. And she was growing stronger. Her song mighty, full of hope and courage. Then, one day she broke free! And a broken wing- did not hold her back and she just flew and flew- _________________________ April 19, 2017 (Repost) Poetry/Verse/Broken Copyright Protected, ID 04-1518-120-19 All Rights Reserved, 2017, Constance La France (Written for a PS contest, NA, Judged in 2017) Submitted into the Standard contest, Second Chance sponsor, Brian Strand, Judged 01/18/2023 Honorable Mention
