My Spiritual Journey

By Poetic Warlock

I grew up physically abused,
With only Grandma to hold on to.
I was a frail child,confused,
and couldn't understand the pain I was going through.

In my teenage years,
I was rebellious and out of control.
Emotional scars were souvenirs,
And I felt I lost my soul!

Down a long dark path
I thought my spiritual journey would end.
Listening to a Demonic Laugh
I found myself in prison with no friend.

I cried out to God for an answer,
For the death of my Grandma was too much!
Spiritual pain ate me away like cancer,
And I felt God had just lost touch.

Down that dark tunnel of tribulation,
I begin to see a spark of light.
I continued forward with determination,
With a stronger spiritual appetite!

Inside behind these evil walls,
I constantly fed my hungry mind.
At times I felt so small,
but mentally I was no longer confined!

I was once weak and frail,
and attempted suicide with a knife.
I fought my way out of hell,
because I now valued life!

My journey began so long ago
And the strength of my heart continues on.
I survived a spiritual TKO,
Emotional scars remain,but insecurities are gone!

    It takes a lot of inner strength to hold on and as it would seem you had it within you.
