    I live in fear

    Filled with the righteous indignation
    Of a victim

    A victim of pain

    Anger tears at my soul
    Hurt refuse to let me grow

    As I hop-scotch this yellow brick road called life
    Dark clouds of sorrow fill my day
    Tears rain down in gentle floods
    As storms of heartache flows my way

    ‘til I say…
    “A victim no more”

    Never, again, will I be
    Wrapped up in my shame
    …hiding in my grief

    I’ll celebrate my growth
    Through life's lessons you gave
    Realize my TODAY
    …My TOMORROW
    Always.

    I FEEL YA MY BRUTHA

    SO MANY TIMES WE FALL
    AS A VICTIM OF SELF FEELINGS
    ONLY TO SEE ONE IN THE PAST
    ON THE YELLOW BRICK ROAD
    OF LIFE'S CIRCLE
    WE REALIZED IT'S US WHOM IS
    THE FURTURE SO WE MOVE ON
    FROM YESTERDAY'S DELIMA INTO
    TODAY'S HAPPINESS AND NEW FINDINGS
    WITH GOD'S GRACE AND PRAYER


    WELL SPOKEN POET!
