The Forsaken One, The Devoured OneA Poem by BLBrown
An abstract poem about suffering from child abuse beginning at a very young age, and the inability, or desire, to forgive. This poem uses lots of imagery to convey strong emotions.
How do I forgive the sun for its stunning shining on an unkempt day full of screaming tirades?
How do I forgive the moon for its glorious glowing in the black sky while I strive to survive the night?
How do I forgive the stars for their grand glistening in the heavens while I seek only dim light in the dark?
How do I forgive the earth for its superior strength while I stumble along unseemly pathways?
How do I forgive the seas for their torrid tempests when they but ignore my own?
How do I forgive the fires that boldly burn spots of the world while I am seared ashen to my very core?
How do I forgive this life unto which I was born, with no chance to thrive, no chance to live?
Nay, I do not forgive, not the heavens, not the earth, not the seas, not the fires! NOT HIM!
I am the forsaken one, the devoured one, the victim child, and, with all the power in my soul, I vow, never will I forgive!
