In the Knowing

Searching2Steel blue framed in rays from the sun
the warmth of innocence declared by her smile.
Tiny fingers, tiny toes…into a world she didn’t know.
Her mothers’ hands a blanket of safety, where did they go?
Alas, no mommy, no mama; rather a shadow of a woman, stifled
by a life ravaged and surrendered.  Every door closed –
to hope, to love, to mother.

Steel blue framed in rays from the sun,
Pain, the great thief, her innocence overcome.
Yet strength like the waves of the sea, never ending,
she knows…
Those thieves who stole the warmth in her smile,
mothers and fathers, friends and lovers,
mask nothing but broken shells on this earth.

Steel blue framed in rays from the sun
Understanding and wisdom and knowing return.
She is not the why, it’s the what who stole her,
so long ago was when and where no longer matters, but
alas, the how leaves her broken… still.

Yet warmth radiates, see it there?
Living and learning, breaking and hurting.
It’s in the Knowing…
she
never
gave
up
