Comments about Ariana Cherry
When I was young, I lived in a box
It was like any other home...
there were rules to follow
and we all ate at the table during dinner.
Yet, my space and area were limited,
as I was only able to peek from my selected area at limited intervals.
Occasionaly, sunlight would filter in,
splashing my face with warmth,
and touching my heart with a hope to escape.
Any moment, I would try to sneak through the cracks, an arm would grab me, and pull me back in the box.
My emotions and wisdom were almost taking up too much room -
As I was growing ...
Tonight, Lord, I say a prayer to you.
Before I lay my head down to sleep.
While I try to promise to myself,
That I dare not weep.
I pray to you,
That you give me the strength to battle the challenges in my life.
As you know, Lord, the pain-
It cuts through my heart like a knife.
