Donna's Story Poem by Donna Nimmo

Donna's Story

Rating: 5.0

I spend alot of time writing poems, telling my story
Most are kind of sad, doesn't offer much glory
My best friend is my paper and my pen
It brings me back to places I have been
Some hold sorrow, some hold cheer
Some hold memories, that are very dear
In some I write about great pain
But most of all, I don't write in vain
If one of my poems can touch your heart
Then, I consider my writing some kind of art
I would like to touch, the lives that have been hurt
Want everyone to know that they must stay alert
Pain and fear isn't a choice for many
In all my years, I've sure had plenty
So if my words can help you heal
Maybe my new life, you can feel
Don't pity me, because I've been made whole
I've taken back my life that other's stole!

Donna's Story is beautiful, I feel and write the same, I can relate to Donna and her feelings as I feel the impulse to write and I write, I do not consider myself a great poet, but nontheless a poet, only writing for 3 years and have hundreds posted a few, Give my page a try Charles Garcia

Great courage you show Donna! I think we all go through what we do for a reason. You've managed to get out of it so I am happy to see you trying to help others...........that's what true survivors do (in my eyes.) Great job. sincerely, Mary
