Playground Contemplation - (a portion of full poem only)

Some days in contemplation
skipping childhood memories
she jumps as jagged fragments fall
fitting disturbances in place
and missing pieces into an old puzzle
needing completion
in hope self-hate will fade.

She often thinks how odd it is
present days can be suddenly twisted
or bent out of shape
through games of hide and seek
by those who prefer to build castles
and bury truth in the sand.

Most days in silence she slips within
To question if past acts of child abuse
can ever leave one unscathed
in a world that loves make believe
and punishes children telling tales.
In the jungle gym of her mind,
she yearns for that hour of liberation.

Kia Ora Lili, its choice how you put the poem and video clip on you tube. Well done for such a hard subject. 'Playground Contemplation' could have been written for me reading it helps be get rid of the ache I have carried within for years of not knowing how to express my self.

The remembering and fitting of pieces about abuse is such a difficult puzzle. To be liberated takes much work and God's help to get through.

Rivetting, gripping poem. Well done.
