Thoughts painted here..please take a walk with me

 Unheard Cries of a Child
The pain of childhood

Burns even yet in my soul

Shows still in my eyes

marks of the rage

The ones that show

Alongside the ones that don't

Nightmares that still

haunt my sleep

she stalks me still

As a child I prayed

First for deliverance

Eventually for her death

Neither came soon enough

God was dead

I first learned

hurt and anger

Love was absent

Words cut

like a daggers steel

I preferred the fist

I lacked the courage

To fight

Fear was paralyzing

The years have passed

Yet not a moment

I wait for a call

She is gone

Long after

She should have been

Peace will find me now

I am free
