RoseAnn V. Shawiak (October 6,1950 / New Jersey)
Breaking A Spirit
Breaking a spirit with abusive behavior, cramming into a grave made
just for me with a mouth and attitude against me.
Always being so mean and bossy, pushing me into corners of nowhere,
keeping me swept away from life and urging suicide on me and into
my mind and heart, no care or concern whether I do or not.
A common criminal in every sense of the word, using opinions and
pushing me over the edge of life right at it's ending.
