What's Inside Shawna - Poem by Shawna V. Cook

~When she was a youth there was happiness inside,
her innocence was taken by secrets to hide.

~Her sacrifice was loyalty that left her confused,
for she didn't know she was being abused.

~A troubled teen not able to express,
the hurting inside so anxious and depressed.

~Her thoughts are of Heaven, she's sad and in pain,
A decision of life with nothing to gain.

~The sensitive Dreamer felt nothing left,
only the thoughts it had to be death.

~And so she attempted playing with fate,
that was just one chance she had to take.

~Addicted and fearful as tears falling down,
the grieving, the torment she hears not a sound.

~Now scared and alone with nothing to hide,
as the secrets she kept turned into suicide.

~She's still alive not understanding why,
so weak, so angry, as she began to cry.

~She says to God, 'Why do I live?
I'm afraid I don't have anything to give.'

~'Your a Dreamer my child, more then most that I know,
you'll learn to love again and never be alone.' 'You paid the price with your sacrifice, your trust, your loyalty and youth. So now you can live with something to give, I speak of only the truth.'

~If this is so then where is the laughter? I can't hear it anymore.
I fear it's gone because I'm not that strong, is there really life there after?

~' Yes my child, there's happiness that's true, the one that you started with once as a youth.' 'So take my hand child and walk with me, your troubles only a few. You are not alone my Dreamer Girl, I'll always Love You Too! '
