(from In the Shadow of my Pen: A Collection of Poetry and Prose)

As a child, she was full of hopes and dreams.

Her life had only begun before her lay a future untold.

But at the midway line, she took a wrong turn in the road.

The path she chose stole everything she had, including her soul.

Now, years have passed, and she has found her strength again.

But this child, now a woman, still lives with the pain.

The person she was will never return.

All that remains of her hopes and dreams are silhouette’s in the sun.
