Wayward Daughter

Turn of the wheel…..
where will it land?
smirking as I play with my knife.
what deed will I have to do
to finally buy my freedom?
silly child that I was
with easy candy fall
taken in darkness
into a deadly arrow.
Rulers of all type
have hired my price
in full.
Reputation I have
of a moving shadow
hindered not with emotions
damage is done
I have never been found.
Wicked girl
you have too much fun
on the killing fields.
Due to that
your release…..
delayed at this time.’

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom
