A Message To My Sister


When we talked yesterday
your pain was so apparent
even though
you wouldn't say.

I could feel you
through my computer.
I could feel your pain
and your desire
for happiness.

I have faith in you
and if I could send my strength
acrossed the many miles
to help guide you
through the roads
that are bound to get rough
I would.

Prove everyone wrong
show them
that you have suffered
long enough
and that now
you will accept nothing
less than happiness.

We were born into pain
loneliness
and abuse.
Don't stay there.
You are so young still
and what a survivors story
you will have
when you overcome
all your obstacles
and create the life
you've never dared to dream!

    Thankyou, this one really moved me. Lifes twists and turns and winding roads and no clear map sometimes either.It maybe that with all our knowledge that we sometimes just stumble upon the straight roads.So leave the highway open drive slowly and watch for the signs that come into view through the mist on there own!
    All The Very Best

    What touching and heart-warming therapy, Mary. I think I might use some of it. God knows, some of us need a little push every now and then. A great sentimental poem. (Report) Reply

    Positive message, heart felt words.
    A few elements made difficult reading (for me)
    With your support, she can find peace.
    Your poems help, Thank you for sharing.
    Wonderful piece.

Once I dipt into the future far as human eye could see,
And I saw the Chief Forecaster, dead as any one can be--
Dead and damned and shut in Hades as a liar from his birth,
