Changed

by SHYSTY23KO   Nov 27, 2004


Crawling on the floor,
trying to get to the door.
Face black and blue,
not having a clue.
what to do,
where to go,
who to show,
who can help.
cloths stained with red,
bleeding on her head,
trying to get out,
not enough strength to shout.
No help around,
can't make a sound,
it can't get worse
but still doesn't give up.
5 years later,
3 kids,
nice place,
strong mind with a beautiful face.
happy with a husband,
and a real true friend.
Knowing she'll never go back,
Picking food over a dime sack.
On her own with out a pimp,
standing strong and not so limp.
no more drugs,
no longer bangin with thugs.
Got herself of the ground
and completely turned her life around.

    I don't exactly know who this poem is about but who ever it is about I'm proud of her :) Because it is such a struggle to have to go through these kind of things and it's so hard to cope with everything.
    You really created a scene in the beginning of a poem I could imagine her "crawling on the floor" and everything else that you said your choice of words really helped this.
    I love the last line as well because it creates a powerful impact on the reader saying that no matter what situation you are in you can change your life around. :)
    Amazing read :)
