Through my eyes, I see hope for you, because you are Somebody!Please learn to live each day as if it really mattered.(The following are reflections of my past...)

Through My Eyes

Through my eyes: You would see four walls every morning when you woke up.

You would see flashbacks of memories that haunt your mind.

You would see flashbacks of your homeboy; being killed, looking into his eyes for one last, “I love you...”

You would see horrible street violence all around you.

You would see yourself smoking crystal and experimenting with almost every drug imaginable.

You would see yourself rolling with your homies; causing trouble wherever you would go.

You would see yourself going to parties, jumping someone and stealing cars.

You would see yourself cutting your wrist and wondering if anyone even cares. You would see yourself hating your parents.

You would see yourself crying at night, hoping God would hear. You would see the hate and fury through your own eyes, as you looked into the mirror.

You would see yourself not trusting anyone.

You would see tears and violence wherever you go, and you would see yourself slowly and silently dying of pain.

You would see so many things; you could write a book about it.

Finally, you would see your innocence escaping forever.

Yes! This is what you would see, through my eyes…

Welcome to the den,please enjoy and be enlightened!

Poignant I do think this write could be beneficial to the young one's that may have experienced the same. Looking beyond the pain and hurt of a precious heart one can see the rainbow and the glows of light just waiting for the next needy soul to come and step into the light of the Father. God favors us all and we are all precious within His eyes. Continue to shine and glitter.

Blessing of all God's beauty to you Traviesa,
From the Heart of an Artist we are all United Through love

Raw and honest and a wise counsel to those who read, Traviesa. I have posted a poem at AD titled, "Devil's Bride." It's about crystal meth. Thank you for sharing these experiences. Sure makes the reader think. Love and peace,

Very well done, Traviesa. There would be a lot of young ones that would be helped if they heed the warning in this write. For that you must continue in your quest.
Reviewed by Andy Turner (Reader) 7/1/2007
A painful central paradigm. It over, gone, history, nuff said, let it go, live for the now, never beat yourself up. Just read your Bio, I have no need to suggest that God can change everything 180, and fing loving friends, as that seems to be where you are, now that you are out of your private hell. You can now, help others, because you have walked the walk..

Very well written candid poem...
