Knight of Compassion

Take my hand
let me help you
I know your pain
I know that voice
the one that says
worthless
stupid
incompetent.
It is false.
It is vile.
It needs to be destroyed.
Insipid fool
hissed in your ear
demon on your shoulder
notion
half glimpsed
turn head
nothing there
grey gloom
surrounding.
Bleak
sun hidden
black fears
reaching out
anguished.
When does this end?
When does the beast die?
Take the hand I offer little one
wrapped in my arms
protection
Warrior Queen I be.
I will pierce the darkness.
I will be your shield.
I will be your sword.
I will be your champion
slaying demons
reminding you of your worth.

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
