Poem: They Tried.

They tried hard to

Take me away,

To that dark place

Where I would

Only feel pain,


Where my potential

Could be curtailed,

Where I would never see

The light of day.



I resisted their

Evil advances,

And I

Took no chances;


I changed my circumstances,

I sidestepped

The furious glances.


As I

Made my way

To the river,

I stepped in,

And I shivered,


But the cold water

Was a pain reliever,

It made me believe in myself

And in forever.
