The Woman Within.............

When I look back at what I once was,
I see a fearless young woman
With much to live for,
A young graceful woman, people adored.

A woman with hopes and dreams,
Someone who'd go the extreme to protect her family
A woman who had so much to stand for,
All that's changed now,
Things aren't that way anymore.

When I look in the mirror I'm disappointed,
A woman who's eyes speak of fears
As they shed heartbreaking tears,
A woman who's been battered,
Who's hopes and dreams have been shattered.

I pray that when people talk about me
They'll speak of the woman before,
My body aches of all this added stress,
Longing for some peaceful caress.

The tiger from within,
Begs to be teased,
To the man in my arms who wishes to be pleased,
Look into my eyes and you'll see,
The blue-lit flames of desire reaching to be set free!

Hi Kristin, I was alerted to your work by Doc, and I am so glad he did. Your work is similar to mine in it's honest hearts base and this poem expresses the whole you. The old you, the new and the you that is strong and full of love. You must believe this and don't allow the current reflection to scare you. This is just a low point in your life and it can and will improve. You are very brave, thanks for sharing your work with us. Sending you some strength to see it through, Tai
