bad past better future

Updated on May 8, 2012

Bad past better future

Stepping forward is hard when the past holds you back

determined to grow in the light when my roots are black

a former life dying, but not dead

scars emotionally from where my soul has bled

raised in a place where i was unseen

except by those who were cruel, those who were mean

i feel no anger but sadness lies deep with in

taunted by the secrets left upon my skin

yet i did not accept this place i didn't belong

i sought out a world in which they were wrong

i feel for others and help where ever i can

wishing peace would befall every child, woman and man

my past was dark and painful but opened up a door

i fight for what is right because i will not ignore

each day growing toward the light up above

praying one day evil will be defeated by love. x

      Growing up poor

      is something people ignore

      they shove you out the door

      hurt you to your core
