The fervent prayer…

This battle
will be fought
away from the eyes
of those
who have
the most to lose.
May they never
know
this pain.

Please God,
let them
never
know
this
pain.

You want so desperately
for them to see me
the way you do.
Not content with your own
malice,
you feel the need to plant
it in their hearts.
you water it,
feed it,
not realizing that
my love for
them is far more
powerful
than your
hatred
of me.

this book is covered
with flowers
and pretty things
but I’m afraid
that inside
it will be filled with
black
and
hatred
and
disappointment.
My hair is done
and
clothes
just right
And I am afraid
that
I
am filled
with
black
and
hate
and
disappointment.
I pray
that
somehow,
in filling this
pretty book,
I will empty
myself
of
worthlessness
and find,
once again,
the light
and
purpose,
and
love,
that 
is
hidden
beneath.
