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.’

I am a single hard working mom in her 40's. I have always written poetry and I love words. I live with depression and its ups downs. This is a space where I can create and write all that I need to.
