A Bright Red Scream Poem by Amy Kerswell

A Bright Red Scream

Rating: 5.0

I have bright red angry screams.
Not within the voice of me.
But in the cuts on my arms.
I cut and cut.
Now my scream is out and free.
My screams are nasty red cuts.
Angrier by the day.

Each cut is my
My bright red scream.
Every cut a new scream.
Screaming louder and louder.

The bright red scream.
Sets me free
If not for long
Just for a while.

Freedom does not come from pain, or screams. Freedom is found in trusting Jesus Christ, Amy, and that's as simple as it gets. Stop screaming - lean on Him.

yes amy, this is a very powerful poem. and you know it is good to write, there is things in can write in words, that you really do not know how to say it in words. writitng does get our feelings out, he does release that anger withing us, keep writing you are a very talented young lady. things will get better just hang in there.

This poem has much potential. It is about a silent scream which shouts in tragic red color. It is almost Zen-like in its powerfulness.
