This is brilliant Michael - I haven't seen many ABC poems on here but I love this. The separation works well here as it draws a dividing line between hopelessness and hope.

Michael I knew that you would do this form proud, this is fantastic and completely seamless! you have a great word choice in here and I like the break in the poem too, it has actually made me review how I look at creating ABC's.....Nominated as I think this deserves to be on the front page.
I've read this peace of art a few times and I have to give it to you. The format is great but the words you have used a the icing to the cake. I can picture this woman living in pure agony, one that has not delt with all the unresolved issues and the trauma she had endured. Opium is certainly not the answer and therapy is and can be successful to an extend. We need to reach the root to the problem. The past can reflect on our future unless we can free ourselves from it. I could go on and on. Deserves to win.
