thanks to all who have encouraged this poem,
Jannel, you made me smile...thank you
I was torn about posting it as I didnt want to cause anyone any pain...but I have learned thru my own personal experiences from my childhood and most of all from my friends lessons...that we must share and speak up...to be heard...to heal.
I know these kinds of subjects are hard...I know it is easier to "scroll" on by...I use to be the same way, so I understand, and its okay if you dont know what to say...but sometimes just knowing someone else understands...just knowing someone else has been there...is enough to help another get strong and start some kind of healing process...
Jesse, I'm so sorry for your pain...I am very moved by your reply to this, and I greatly respect your courage to share your pain...I was inspired to write it by my friends amazing courage...and I knew it must be shared with anyone who could find strength in it...I hope it did that for you...I decided to post it when I saw a poem by "childomine"...her courage in sharing...helped me to know I should...I thank her for this...I hope she sees this.
I have been touched by so many amazing people in here...I thank you all, for that
take care, Janet Marie
Some things cannot be explained by verses that rhyme,
They are not measured by the commitment of time.
Some emotions run too deep to be described by words,
Forgiveness and understanding-
remain the most beautiful words ever heard.
