Poetry -- "Awakening"
December 4, 2006 8:45am CST
In control with the world at her feet She has everything she could ever dream A nice house and beautiful kids The perfect life it would seem She lives her life behind a two-way mirror Clawing at the cold hard glass In the dark and on her knees She watches her life and lets it pass For no one see's her in her time of need She's the one who's always been strong But, at her lowest she simply gives up It's been this way for too long The room goes black, she can no longer see She struggles back to her feet Rising slowly, face in her hands She admits her final defeat Searching for a light as she slowly walks Her body is getting cold Scared and weak she tries to stand tall She tries to be strong and tries to be bold Her body is tired and she can no longer stand She collapses to the floor Just as she does the light comes on She's more scared than ever before She lays there shivering, cold and alone Suddenly she hears a voice He says it's too late to turn back now She has no other choice Too weak to move so she opens her eyes The light was as bright as the sun Her eyes focus on a puddle of blood And she realizes what she's done She's lived her life from behind this mirror Begging to be seen Cold and alone she starts to cry Then she awakens from this dream Sitting up in her bed she takes a look around And quietly starts to cry She knows that something has to be done She can't let life pass her by She gets out of bed, still slightly weak And makes her way down the hall She hears the sounds of two small angels From the other side of the wall Getting closer she opens the door Not knowing what she'd see There's toys all around and the room is a mess But, this is how it should be One angel runs to her grabbing her leg He hugs as tight as he can She realizes that this is her life And it's all part of the plan Looking up at her from big sparkling eyes She stares at this angel's face He jumps into her arms with "Good morning Mommy!" And She whispers, "You are my saving grace..."
