A Woman is Born...
Friday, September 25, 2009
I wrote this poem a few years back when I was troubled with some personal issues. Writing always helps to clear my mind and heals my aching heart and soul. Maybe some of you can relate to this poem.
A woman is born...
She fights for life and for breath....no one sees the struggle
She communicates with poetry....the words fall on deaf ears
She offers song...but they do not hear the music
She wants to be understood...but she is misread
She reaches out...they pull away
She longs for love....but they abuse her
She speaks the truth....but they want lies
She shows deep emotions....but they see moods
She has strength....but they see stubbornness
Her eyes are soft but you can see the pain,
Her heart is full of love but is laden with sorrow,
Her lips long for joy but turn down with sadness.
She builds a wall...
The bricks are her pain and the mortar her tears..
They see the wall...
They understand its message...
The wall asks for no love
The wall has no poetry, no song, no truth, and no emotions
The wall is strong and unyielding.
The wall has no face yet they know the meaning of the wall...why?
Behind the wall a longing woman beckons to God's creatures
She speaks in poetry...they understand her needs
She shows them love...they return the love
She becomes emotional...they know her heart is kind
She reaches for them...they enjoy her touch
She sings to them...they listen intently
She offers them truth...they appreciate knowing
She is strong...they feel safe
If animals can be this kind...why aren't people?
