    I've said it
    and meant it
    I've been ignored
    A force it should have prevented
    I tried it
    And it was useless
    So, use it
    but take caution
    It cost to know your options
    You fool
    Those two Breast are gonna kill you
    When two letters
    ....Will not save you
    Yet that is what they tell you
    I told him
    And he doesn't remember
    And now every December
    Fourth,
    year,
    I know his birthday!
    But I don't think he ever told me
    I tell you,
    Because I've told myself
    and I've never said it sense
    I'd like to believe I have a choice
    But those who hear my voice would beg to differ
    I'm different
    But more alike
    with empty vials of denial
    I carry round, and around and around
    this cycle has run it's course
    It's short but never ending
    so I'll end with the beginning
    when he freed his fingers
    all I could think about was tissue
    mama told me I should use it
    but see she said it in a manner
    that I didn't think it mattered
    so when she never had to tell me
    I never told her why
    blame behind her eyes
    never came because of lies
    preschool polluted minds
    disguising dilluted crimes
    as dinner tables chimed
    with why you always crying
    train no pain seap through these eyes
    like rain, leaving no puddles
    drain me of my prime
    and fed to all my troubles
    never took it to a judge
    he would ask me to remember
    but it's neat behind a pencil
    like there's strenght in my utensil
    so I write
    like life
    is light
    enough for me to fit
    between my finger
    but I never thought I'd write this poem
    because I never thought it'd let me
    but for for too long
    I have been letting these two letter words
    oppress me
    suppress me
    push me in a corner
    I have been beneath me
    no longer will I linger here
    I write me bigger than my body
    for my god dwelleth within me

    It can hold us down, it can propel us to do great things, if we allow it. I get it, poetess, so nice to read you again.

    a river of two letter tear drops...

    as the words poured out of you
    Never doubted you
    Or your ability to BE
    To let ME and WE for an eternity BE
    All that we have come to be

    but weep not, my child
    for God dwellest within you

    The feel of this was awesome! Your mental meanderings just ebbed and flowed like a river.
