Rape, abuse, neglect,
Drugs, alchohol, and lies;
People playing mind games,
And someone always dies.

These things make up my past;
They're things I cannot change.
But how I wish my life
Could just be rearranged.

They've controlled me for too long,
And they will not anymore.
I want to move on for once
And learn to close this door.

I'm facing all these problems
Head on this time around.
Although it is much harder,
They will not keep me down.

This is something I can promise;
Something I will vow.
I'll try and fix my life for once,
Although I don't know how.

I can't stand my life right now,
But I've decided not to leave.
To really live is hard enough,
But that's my goal to achieve.


**I don't really like this title, but I couldn't think of anything better, so if anyone can think of something else, thanks!

Jess...This is a great poem! I truly hope you mean what you said, in that you decided not to leave and that you are going to try and fix things once you figure out how. And I hope you know that I will ALWAYS be here to help you along the way...that is my promise!

Dsnyder--a simple "thanks" can't really say how much I'm thanking you.
Hoot--I wish I could just learn to keep this attitude all the time! That's the hard part. Thanks a lot!
marzar--Me? Powerful soul? That's the first time I've heard that. Thanks for the encouragement!
Melanie--Well, I meant what I said when I wrote this. Is that good enough? That promise means so much to me )Thank you.

Yes, it is good enough...for now It's a start at least. I just hope that you can keep it up! *huggles* And that promise remains true! You're welcome!

What about 'A promise to myself'? It's only an idea mind! So sorry you had to deal with all that, I truly am, but it sounds as though you've seen the light at the end of the tunnel and are coming through just fine. Your heart and soul and God above guide you, follow them, and you'll never stray again. You've come through with flying colours, I'm proud of you - you go girl!!!

------------------
Cast your eyes on the ocean,
Every man goes down to his death bearing in his hands only that which he has given away...
