This New Dawn

Poems on Expressions and Pain of Sexual Abuse


Some of the poems
written here
are filled with
pain and sorrow.
Other’s contain
hope and joy –
a promise
for tomorrow.
Still others speak
of life and more,
of gardens, plants
and flowers;
questions, thoughts
and memories
which did my soul
This expression
of my inner self
you take with you today,
hopefully will speak to you
in a very special way.
It is my wish
that you will find
some peace –at least a start;
release from pain
that may have settled
deep within your heart.
