AS A CHILD

As a child I have been thru so much
I have seen the streets abuse, rape, and even drugs,
I had eyes of the innocent child,
I had the story of the run away child
and even a hero in my life,
the tears I shed was not wipe away,
but fell from my eyes until I slept.
There were so many dreams I had
a safe home with a picket fence
on top of a hill,
with the teacher I had met,
I had friends I talk too and
friends I had trust,
but they were the streets dogs
that also needed love,
when I ate they would eat
when I drank they would drink
but when I slept they would watch
I felt hate in my life
but i also felt love,
I felt so much hungry and so much cold
nor a blanket to keep me warm,
I had sisters but they also felt pain
and brothers that were out of there heads,
from the drugs they have taken.
For life as a child was so hard
but my dreams kept me going,
and the love of my dogs taught me how to trust,
so many things that this child has gone thru
so many angels watching over her,
given her the strength to go on in life,
to teach and help others,
I guess maybe this is what my life was all about,
the strength, the will to go on
to show people that no matter what!
That life goes on and somewhere at the end
of the tunnel, there is happiness and love.
there are so many street dogs but we must remember that once they had an home,
an person they also trust and that was taken away
dogs they also feel as much as a human being
and all they want is for someone to love and to trust ,for many years they had watch over me ,
my friends my protector

Don't Look Back__ And, While You've Come Thus Far, Try To Help Someone Overcome It As You Did,i.e. I Was An Abused Child...
You Must Be Strong As (God) Has Placed You On Path Not To Tarry From It Or You Will Perish!
