The Scarlet Letter - Poem by Sarita Milliner
A symbol of guilt, sin, shame and pain,
To, scorn one’s life, in an effort to de-fame.
It stands out like a light, in the dark of night,
Its’ bright red color give the stars much delight.
A representation of what’s good and bad,
Conflicted in my thoughts, at times I am sad.
Living a life that’s full of illusions,
Spinning around in a whirlwind of confusion.
Time after time, I question where I stand,
I soon realize I must accept God’s given plan.
I must confess, that life has its ups and downs,
But as I move forward I must stand my ground.
Life gives us trials and tribulations too,
Leaving me wondering what I should do.
At times I see what I’m destined to truly be,
Like a bird in a cage that wants to be free.
My guilty pleasures have bound me to sin,
I must look deep inside of me to find peace within.
Wait, what’s that I hear in the dark silent night?
My precious baby, not far from my sight,
A reminder of the good times, and a love so true,
My sweet baby girl, I do love you.
The Scarlet Letter, a symbol of guilt, sin and shame,
Was meant to torment me and bring me much pain.
But once I was set free I discovered the real me,
The “A” represented the person that I was destined to be.
