I had been living on and off the streets my whole life.
My mom was sick; my dad was gone.
The world was my enemy: cruel
I had no problem taking what it wouldnít give me.
I didnít care about hurting people who hurt me.
Why show mercy to the merciless: guilt-less
I could go where I wanted and do what I pleased,
No man controlled my destiny,
No destiny controlled me: freedom?
They looked at me to loathe.
They ran past me to fear.
My life was an excuse for their scorn: ignorant
The past was swallowed by a shameless abyss.
The present-a constant tide.
No future could penetrate my hopeless eyes: haunting
I donít know where she came from,
I donít know who she was.
In my darkest hour when emptiness was consuming,
She stopped to sit beside me.
Her smile soothed the torment,
Her glow pushed back the black.
A moment of peace: Blessed.
