You tried to break me from the grave,
Crushing, forcing me to behave.
Your ashes burn my flesh & eyes,
Tears won’t wash away all your lies.

Your darkness seeps through broken souls
Yet I will continue to fight, to become whole.
You are a plague of putrid hate & lies,
Its time your legacy of fear finally dies.

You tried to break me in life and in death,
You strangled my dreams with my breath.
All you did was make me stronger,
Even more determined to live longer.

The darkness needs to be washed away,
Let the ashes blow far from this day.
I will remain strong, very much alive,
You will not rob me of my faith inside.

I have always said that my poetry and short stories write themselves, I'm just the hand that holds the pen. Several of my poems have been published in local publications and in the 2011 World Poetry Movement book 'Stars in our Hearts'. Please enjoy the words, but do not steal them. I enjoy living and what life brings my way. My day job, I'm a geekgirl, a programmer. Coding is like using clues to solve a mystery to me. But, my happiness outside of the day job involves, cooking, baking, knitting, crocheting, writing, hiking, primitive skills. Yup, I come home and unplug. So there are many sides of me here. Enjoy.
