abuse is not love

A newborn child crying.

the dew drops of sadness penetrated deep into my soul

as i cried thinking of how he hurt you so

i cried until there were no tears remaining

i cried because  the life i brought into this world was found aching

i cried because your life is precious …i love you so

i cried because you are precious to me, more than you will ever know

i cried because you lost belief in your own worthiness along the way

i cried because you thought his cruelty was okay to stay

now the secret it out in the open

now the words were finally spoken

now you have a second chance

now you have a road out of the trance

be strong in you, believe in you, you are strong

you are worthy,  go to your core, know you do belong

you are worthy, guard your gentle soul

you are worthy, look to yourself to make you whole

you have all you need deep inside

allow yourself belief  in the love that does abide

you are never alone, we are all one

choose this and begin the run

know that i love you and always will

know that i love you…please do instill

  7. Powerful and heart breaking. If only we would realize this and move on with ourselves without the self destruction we allow them to dole out disguised with sugar coated words

    Hi, I log on to your blogs regularly. Your writing style
    is witty, keep up the good work!


  9. The human condition…always someone has to try to control or exert power over another….since the beginning of time. But I think it is important that we continue to speak out against it. We have to be the reminder that there is another way! If our words reach one person, isn’t that already wonderful?
