No doubt, you'll notice I posted another poem on my blog.
I post it with a great deal of trepidation, because it is so very raw. I want my friends to know that in that poem, I am shadow boxing the very worst things that happened to me in my life, both internally and externally.
It's not literal; it's a poem. It's a vivid word picture of my internal journey, of the things that I experienced, heard, learned, and grew past.
I'm not trying to throw stones at anyone else; I have a deep respect for each person's walk and way with God.
That's why this poem is talking only about my own life- not anyone else's.
This is just talking about how my childhood experience impacted me, with as much emotional honesty as I could bring to the table, which, you will no doubt notice, is a great deal.
I'm wrote this out of my own life, but I'm sharing it for the other broken hearted ones out there- I know there are many.
