Happiness.

From the womb I was conceived
Happy, loved, and momentarily freed
This troublesome world had no meaning to me
For I was protected under a glass of naivety

Laughter and joy are blissful known
To a child whoís never been alone.
Comforted and cared for
This heart leaps from its core.

Abandoned.

Vows were taken and bonded in love
Until promises made were no longer thought of.
My examples in life were ripped from my world
As they selfishly chose to make me a target they hurled.

A young woman I desire my loving mother there
As I give life to the three I did bear.
However, as I hold my tender ones near
I praise God for the little lives I get to adhere.


Fear.

This motherís love I never knew
My heart dreams could still come true.
Like a child I hope and pray
To be held and adored again someday.

Will I be able to let go of my past
To take this journey anew at last?
Will my love be enough to draw my children in?
Will they see beauty where my heart had to begin?

Love.

I look up from my walk and see tenderness around
As people are connected through love abound.
I long for it too, but fear takes its grip
This wall stands strong against this heart wrenching trip.

Some days I want to feel a hug so tight
So why do I close up when I should ignite?
I fear if I let go and breathe love in
My tears will become a waterfall as hours of healing begin.


Hope.

Should I believe in the chance
That someone would welcome this dance?
Allowing my heart to heal
As I learn to feel?

I long to be rescued and set free
From this pain that suffocates me.
I want to breathe life and sing freedom loud
That my God has brought me out of this dark cloud.

Healing.

I believe my God is there
As he brings friends and mothers near.
Encouraged and loved, my wall is breaking
As overwhelming happiness I cannot control is taking.

It will not be long before Iím whole
For I know this was Godís goal.
To raise me up through the mentors he chose
That I might become the Woman he knows.

This is a touching poem of so many different feelings we encounter as we journey through life.
