Wounded

Wounded Child
Crying in Corner
Lost between the years

Crying out Silently
No One Comes
No One Hears

A Prison of Silence
Surrounds Me,
Into an Early Grave.

How do I start
to Breath Again?
Am I Someone's Slave?

A Wounded Child
grows, As Does
A Wounded Man.

The Wound Becomes My Sword.
Like Tempered Steel,
I am strong again, Oh my Lord.

A Wounded Man Sat
Crying Lost
Within his Years.

Silence at last was Broken
Stattered Wounds Turned
Into a River of Tears.

A Sword of Anger Broke me out,
As I Yelled Screamed and Roared.

The Prison wasn't
Mine at Last
It Was Yours.

By M. Joseph

The Prison wasn't mine at last it was Yours !

The abuse was not done by me, it was done by them. I must let go of their hold on me. This poem is about letting go of the abuse.

Part of the letting go is in the writting of the poem. I still have a way to go. Spending more time on today instead of yesterday.

michael Joseph,

Thank you for sharing. We are all on this journey, letting go of the 'prison' isn't easy. I agree it is not of our my making, but I stay there sometimes anyway...

I guess we can all relate to this poem, remmeber who is in the prison cell. It is not me.

Michael
as much as I read and write, I have never been able to get into poetry, I've never been able to conjure up the images that I can when reading a novel.

But "Wounded" somehow got through to me, made startling images in my mind and moved me deeply, which I liked.

Thanks for that.
Lloydy
