A angel girl the age of 6, heard yelling in the hall.
She peeked outside her bedroom door, and saw momma hit the wall.
She always knew that Mom was sad, her heart was full of scars.
For Mommy knew that Daddy lied, he was never truly ours.
The little girl grew up to be a hopeful, shy young teen.
She watched romantic movies and would cry at every scene.
For true love she had never witnessed from her Mom and Dad.
She didn’t feel it did exist, and that would make her sad.
At 14 years, she met a boy, who told her many things.
His smile hid malice and demise; his manipulation clipped her wings.
He promised her the perfect world if she would just agree,
To be his little play thing, ‘til he got bored and let her be.
For years she was trapped in his grip, her mind battered and bruised,
Only later did she realize that she was being used.
The teen grew into a young woman and finally felt free,
She spent the summer after school in Spain out by the sea.
She traveled and she smiled and she blossomed and she changed.
Then quickly, there soon after, her life was rearranged.
She met someone that loved her, for truly all she was.
A boy that showed her, at 18, the reason, her “because”.
She was afraid at first to show him her never-ending light,
Then finally she fell in love and knew she’d be alright.
Years after, the two hearts had to go their separate ways,
For they could not continue to love each other clouded by a haze.
As they grew into themselves, they slowly grew apart.
And as he learned to love another, it broke the young girl’s heart.
“Why me?” she said with tired eyes as momma stroked her hair.
“It’s okay sweetheart” her mother said “there are good men out there”.
The young woman just closed her eyes, and swore she’d never love.
She promised to only love herself and put nobody else above.
As life continued on with time she learned to love herself.
She admired all the strength she had, the past that gave her stealth.
She mended the relationship that haunted her for years.
Father and daughter sitting on the floor, his t-shirt drenched in tears.
“I love you,” he told her. “I’m sorry I broke your heart. I was the reason that you mind was troubled from the very start.”
Forgiving him soon helped her find serenity and hope.
For otherwise she was not sure if she would ever cope.
Soon she welcomed obstacles that could get in her way.
For she knew that with every lesson learned through pain, her strength would stay.
She spread the peace she found within her heart with those she did not know.
The feeling of helping others find themselves was something she’d never let go.
And so the little girl grew into a woman that was whole.
She was kind and honest and loyal and true; the woman with a passionate soul.
