December 20, 2011 – Real Life Event – Author Christena AV Williams

 

Do I fear death?

Death was before me

Gripped

Counting seconds of my life

There I was facing judgment

Like votes in a ballot

Was I to live or die?

Cash pot and lucky five

Could not save me

All I Got was God watching me

My heart pounding

But still, I was calm

Not fearful

But wondering

What my end was to be

And finally,

When the gun man got what

He wanted

I could see fear in his eyes

His voice Tremble

He only took vanity

And left me with the greatest Gift,

Life on December 20, 2011.

Foreword . . .

How many people can say they have not walked on rough terrain to get to where they are today? Most of us have been bruised and beaten to find out who we really are within; to find joy in this life we have been given. We are flawed beings with imperfect paths, and those turbulent journeys can either make us or break us.

It is easy to blame our past wrongs, the people who have tarnished our trust, and the bad bets the world throws at us. But we still hold the power to make a choice to become better than the humans who hurt us; to be the voice of change by learning from the experiences which have attempted to break us. Along the many roads traveled, the decisions we make will determine who we are to become.

Take a moment to walk in another’s shoes. The poets here have opened their Pandora’s Box, not to release the personal demons that taunt or once to keep them confined, but to share how to sever the weights one is shackled to.
