A Shocking Change - Poem by Nikiesha Richards

Eyes filled with tears and a heart that’s broken
From undesired actions and hurtful words spoken
Visible scars to show the pain felt inside
Carefully tucked away from public shame, I hide

As each day came, I get up and again I try
And with each passing night again I cry
Everyone around us has something to say
It’s nice to know that soon silence will rule the day

Heads will turn and jaws will drop
All the laughing and criticism will stop
They will be like statues frozen in shock
A rocky marriage, now stands firmly on a rock

Not surprising they didn’t think we would last
But we held on to each other and not the past
The wind tossed us, but we stood stronger
The storm was long, but our love lasted longer

What we do in the eyes of others may seem strange
But things that are seen are always subject to change
These things had to happen, it was in line with the father’s plan
So trust in his judgment, and hold on tightly to his hand
