"A Life Her Own"

"A Life Her Own"

A Poem by Christine Crowson
"

Every person has a story, though masked to the public. I find beauty in the discovery of the path each person has traveled. For, no matter the pain, it has transformed that person into who they are.

"

The Pain experienced

darkening her soul

translates into a Fog

effecting her vision


in which her

Past, Present, and Future

Filters her perception

of now.


Each moment measured,

while society

blindly discounts

her story, actions, her life.


She searches for

a new pair of eyes,

a new Perspective.


Only to find,

her life lived is not to be

Forgotten, Disparaged,

but instead

constructively applied

to each moment

individually crafted.
