COURAGE FOUND… Abused
There was a time long ago
It was here, that I know
I knew I used it long before
I put it safe behind the door
But only then I couldn’t find
Lost inside my tortured mind
Panic buttons I did hit
Running now in a fit
It was here! It really was!
And now it’s gone. Oh it was
But if it went then why I say
Did it feel like yesterday?
It’s bugging me, this little thing!
Can’t sit still, nor can I sing!
Oh my God do I feel stupid!
It never was so deeply rooted!
It was a moment I did fear
It was a moment in a year
But truly now I know I had it
Didn’t know that I could grab it
I let it hold me very tight
It was so dark and like the night
A weight so heavy in my chest
But frozen feet stay at rest
It squeezed my throat. No more voice
It screamed at me I had no choice
Left me lying in my body
Nothing worked, somewhat gaudy
It pounded, slapped and cursed at me
It Beat my soul relentlessly
And yet I watched and took it all
I had my back against the wall
I cried, said stop, just go away
Why me? What for? Why this day?
When in my mind I chose to die
My heart cried out “it’s a lie!”
I couldn’t save me anymore
Message sent to my hearts door
No more pain, no more sorrow
I will not wake on the morrow
It’s not the death that I did want
It was the pain and all the taunt
No living creature should endure
This evil force for ever more
All the parts that sought to fight
They scurried round with all their might
Don’t let her go she needs to stay
This is not her dying day
Nothing shone upon her face
The beast of burden won his place
He won the battle he fought hard
He walked away and left his guard
Minutes sent from parts in seconds
Urgent calls and body beckons
Oh the brain it could not stop
The lying body would not drop
Within a second not too late
A flame of hope demonstrate
A breath of courage blazed on in
Ready for the evil’s grin
And there it was I had found it
My ears and soul did resound it
Eye to eye this devil here
I stared right at the face of fear
Unto this beast and horrid man
My virtue came and eyes did scan
Hot headed monster, bully too!
You poor dear soul, there’s nothing in you!
#Life is a precious gift! It’s not all pleasant for everyone. There are many things we can fix, but never can we control the acts of another. That is not our jurisdiction.
Some of us have it worse,
Some are prone to pain
Some never knew what it was
Some cannot explain.
Abuse in any shape or form
Is crime unto the brain!
No other life can we perform
For fear is this domain.
Of any word said obscured
Can have a mighty blow!
It’s not a choice to stay in pain
It’s something you don’t know.
For those who live and carry on
Through your courage! You have won!
But if you suffer or know one too
This is wrong and you must do,
All you can to help and change
This world of evil so deranged!
Do not judge or make a statement
Rather look and seek abatement .
Stand for #courage in your words
It is in this when not inferred!
To make a difference to this crime
In every act, one at a time!
Raise your voice, and children too!
Have I made it clear for you?
