Wisdom
  

WISDOM

 

Seven years old, abusively violated

Only useless refuse left

After the extraction of my innocence

Live prey, left an empty shell

Ten years old,

Mixed with a blend of conflicting entities

Existing entirely as an irregular frail unit

Not speaking for fear of spasmodic hesitation

Fourteen years old,

Uncontrolled, self destructive, total hatred for self

Frequent thoughts of suicide

Gun in mouth, deeply absorbed, engrossed even

Yet can’t bring myself to surpass moral bounds

Fifteen years old,

Life changing event! Pregnant! Devastated! Abandoned! Afraid!

Alone, except for the baby girl growing inside of me

Nineteen years old,

None the wiser just yet, but slowly receiving the

Understanding of the need to repent

Immediately discovering the hope

Finally embracing the power and experiencing the

Grace of the Lord who said that through Him

All things are possible!

I like how you take the experiences of your life to make your work. It makes it all the more important.
