I Didn't Know - Poem by Maria Sharon Moemise

I didn't know

Sharon M Moemise

When I was a girl filled with hate
And then became a woman, wiser
When my way of life involved fate
I'd be bound to a womanizer

When I dreamt of love and wealth
And came so close to both
I'd have to struggle with my health
And lose the fight almost

When I gave life to a healthy son
That the world would start to shine
My little child to be the only one
My baby, my heart, my lifeline

That when life starts to take its toll
I'd remember the girl filled with hate
I didn't know that I could have had it all
But now I'm on my own, my life, my fate.
