I Am Moving Forward Again - Poem by Kelley Collins

I was once a super mom and tender hearted wife;
but, I have known too much of this abused life!
this emptiness within is a wretched thing,
It's worse than the torture that my past did bring!
Evil seems to rob us of the passion we were once about,
The scars we forever carry leave emptiness without a doubt!
This soul carries much anger and pain,
Lord, I feel I am going insane!
What use to exist as a tender, compassionate heart
has been battered, tortured, and torn totally apart!
I stop running for only a moment before the fear catches me;
for, I must dry my tears so I can see!
i catch my breath quickly and follow the wind,
I still see the torture and all that has sinned!
My spirit was deeply cut like a knife;
yet, I dug up my remaining roots, in hopes, for a safer, better life!
I am moving forward again!
