Wounded

Wounded Child
Crying in corner
Lost between 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 Breathe 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
Shattered Woundes 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
(Me)

darrell said his last perp was his last

Now I say it Mr. D is the last one to hurt me like this.

I am looking into self defence class

"now I have to believe them"

Ain't that the truth?! "Cogito ergo sum - I think therefore I am" but am I? I do wonder.

Michael Joseph, we can turn our wounds around and use them to heal ourselves and others. Turn the tables on the bastard perps.
Ever read any Henri Nouwen? Go Google or whatever you have and read a few papragraphs. Amazing man.

.....and so here I sit, eating fresh native strawberries up here in Yankeeland and sniffing new lavender. Nothing kinky, just trying to decide where to plant them.

a froggy of many dimensions

Michael,

I wonder if self-esteem and self-confidence might be the more powerful weapons. For a long time I would have caved in to any perp in a second, but now I feel sure that would never happen. To me it seems that the reason for my strength lies in emotional resources that I have built up far more than in any physical strength, which for me, at 58, is going down the drain anyway. \:\)

Much love,
Larry
