Day Dreaming

By Edona

I sat the there while Terror ruled my heart and rage ran my brains ,
Thinking of all the things I didn’t know how to say,
Blinding seeing the future and finding my way
Pain is inside my body every day
I wanted it to stay It was my only friend I told it not to go away
No longer do I fear To be near and hear the sound of courage to stand
Hand in hand not fall victim to the demand
That constant suffering will bring My eyes sting I must begin
The slow detachment of past memories And move on in my journey to find a new home
Because I have outgrown This old life and it’s old plans
Full of dreams and I cans I open my eyes and see, Me.
