The Journey – Author Vee Townsend

 

In the middle of chaos

she hopes

In the middle of hoping

she dreams

Through all the struggles

the blood, the sweat and tears

she is forever seeking

she seeks that which has been denied her.

She longs for peace

she hopes for joy

she dreams of forever

she seeks a brighter tomorrow

Don’t pity her

she neither needs nor wants it

don’t ever think her weak

she’s survived more than you can know.

Don’t stand in her way

her journey won’t allow it

but if you’ll walk with her a while

she’ll show you what love looks like.

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.
