Death Don'T Touch My Door - Poem by Debora Johnson

Completely in Love and married at fifteen
Bruised beaten battered and abandoned,
with four children at nineteen, I WANT TO LIVE
I'll keep on tryin, love is out there somewhere

Twentyone, fell in love, married had a son
Five children now for this single mom of thirtytwo
I WANT TO LOVE, I'll keep on tryin, life is out there somewhere

thirtyfive, third husbands a dream, all I ever wanted,
Fourtyfour eight grandchildren call me nanny,
To bad papaw doesn't know Nanny's heart is breakin
In this house I don't exist, but never will I say
I give up.... I want to die...For it would be a LIE.

My heart is full of wonder and love
that someday someone will want
I'll swear this with my dying breath
I want to live, love, and live.
