The Spirit Soars

DoveShe struck so many times I began to lose count

But each time my failure in every amount

She would slander my worth

Spewed with disdain

The spit always upon my face


In the forced intimacy

My body unmoving within the bed

My mind would ascend to happy places

Thoughts upon the days of play


She scorned the spirit I hid deeply

There would be that moment and that time

One day I would touch what is free

I would find it within me


When she threw all the bottles, trash and hate

One day there would be that escape

That other world beyond the ugly

The other place where people loved me



On the couch I would dream of moments to come

The moments of my strength

Moments of love and of peace


I would make a plan and patiently I would wait

One of these days I would have that date

Time I had hidden in corners

With the tears and bruises and all the scars


With the many hits and emotional wounds

I knew that day would be coming soon

I wasn’t sure how but I knew I would manage


May nineteenth will not be forgotten

In my memory it will forever remain

All that I have fought for

Will be all that I gain


I recall the fear of being alone

I stayed safe and secure between four walls

I had survived but had not begun living

The day had come that I had thought of many times before

Let’s become now all that I have been given


The first venture out I gave to panicked trust

I sat alone in that coffee shop shaking off the rust

I made it back to my place of solitude

The walls built of fear I wiped clean

On all four sides I would hang the triumph, strength, survival and cheer


Among your best you tried to break which I had hid from your dark

The body lie on the floor but the spirit always would soar

I reached inside and picked myself up

To the mirror I would pause

I finally spoke of words I had never thought to say


What comes first is the love of yourself

What comes first is a trust you must never lose

What comes first is to hear I love you

Accept where you have been but always recognize that you have survived

Never forget the others where their spirits hide
