Her body broken by the pain

Shattered like glass

Darkness between each piece

Where flesh once existed


What will become of her

Can she be whole again

Gain back what she lost

Or disappear for good


Lost little girl

Trying to find her way

Obstacles in the path

Wanting her gone


She fights desperately

Trying to face the pain

To no longer hold it in

Who will wn?

Hi Terri,
You write so beautifully, how about posting once in awhile in the happy thread on A/P, we call it happy, but its for everything that is positive even if its sad,
You know, if you keep writing stuff like that, i know who's going to win, of course YOU, but you who becomes what you want to be, not what you are trying not to be, is'nt it true that when we are fighting what we don't want and fighting also to be what we do want, nothing gets anywhere, so maybe just stop fighting what you don't want, and expend all that energy and talent on what you do want, and soon enough all that stuff that hurts you won't have any say in your life no more
Don't forget, i expect to see something on our happy thread
God Bless

Brownleaf - I hear what you are saying. I will work on putting my effort into positive things. Until then how about halfway:

Who Am I?

I am a girl whose mother gave her up for a man
A girl who who no one wanted

I am a girl who always tried to exceed expectations
To not be abandoned

I am a girl who will never forget the violence
Violence from a man who said he loved her
Who said she made him angry

I am a girl who always thought she was a survivor
Would always remember and have strength
Who would take care of her family
Love them and not leave them

I am woman who wants to feel worthy,
Smart, loving and kind
Who wants to feel strong again
Not hurt herself
Be confident, admirable, and brave

I am a woman longing for the day
When sadness no longer surrounds her
A day when she can let go of the pain
Live in the present
Look forward to the future

I am a woman who wants to love and be loved
Without pain, anger or violence
Not be abandoned
Be respected
And be happy

Hi Terri
Halfway is a good start, and i can see a lot of light in "Who am I",
When i have my little downers or start thinking about the bad stuff in the past, i give myself a couple of moments to let my mind tell me about it, just a couple, "kinda like as if someone was telling me something, but i had to rush, so make it quick," then if it's the same old round and round stuff, i will say to these thoughts, as i would to someone else, "you have already told me this, what else have you got to tell me thats new"
2 minutes, no more, then i will take a deep breath, and while i let it out i will roll my shoulders, wiggle my head and shift my focus around the room, and whiile i do that, i think of something positive or even just ask myself to think of something positive, then do something, anything, we learn breathing techniques, but no one tells us how important the use of your eyes are, in changing what i going on in your mind, keep them moving, chaging focus, this allows time for you to change your negative thinking into a positive,

I can't talk at the mo, "i got that laringitis thingy" and i feel like yapping, so hope you don't mind

I have always tried to want over need, and my reasoning here, is need tends to cloud many issues and removes your own power, whereas wanting gives you choices, and it also gives other people choices, because need somehow envelopes others and ties them into things they don't really want, when they figure that they get angry and frustrated, wanting lets you get out of bad situations while need will keep you stuck there, for some reason love get thrown in with need and we wonder why it goes bad

I think we all know how to be happy, but when something goes terrible wrong, we go searching for answers when there are no answers to be found, we blame ourselves, because we think how could someone treat me like this unless ive been bad too, and the new agers get on this, saying you are responsible for your life situation, that is true but there is more to it, you are responsible for how you may feel, partly, but you are not responsible for what other people do to you that will make you feel bad, ever walked into a room full of people feeling good, then one step in and you feel yuk, we affect ourselves just as other people affect us, the more confidence and happiness in your life will shield you from how others do affect us like this, and the more able you are to want over need, will let you easily walk out of those situations without feeling bad

Sorry bout the yapping on, think i'll go and throw some bread crumbs out for the birds,
keep writing, it's good, well i like it, just quickly, did you write poetry before the bad stuff happened,?

Thanks for writing. I enjoy hearing from you. No. I have never been too good at writing. My daughter is the writer in the family. I am just giving it a try to let some feelings out in an arena where I feel comfortable.

Thanks again,
