 once upon a time


I'm Joleen,I live, I breathe,beyond that,

this universe is my wheelchair. Today,

and tomorrow exists outside of me.

I cannot respond nor indicate how I feel. 


I'm stranded, all because of the violence

inflicted upon me by a cruel sadistic man

who, proclaimed too love me. His blows 

to my head and chest destroyed me. His feet 

pummeled me as I curled up on the ground.


I'm Joleen,I live and breathe, one day perhaps

I'll know my baby boy again. Meantime my

mum,she'll make sure he's looked after

until then,think constantly of me.
