Drown

She was content
to drown
in chaos; she chose
to give up
fighting for peace
once she understood
she didn’t even own
her body.
Everywhere she went
someone
would lay claim
to her body.
Both men and women
wanted to own her.
But they all wanted to
break her to pieces.
Some clubbed her
with lies
while others
stabbed her with
the Dream
that always lived
in her heart.
Rumors swirled
about the girl
who dreamed
about holding Love
in the palm of
her hand. She
knew it did no good
to keep fighting
so she stopped
trying to swim
upstream and
just allowed herself
to drown
in chaos. It was
easier that way,
she decided.
And no one
tried to talk her
out of it.

Peace & Love,
Rosalind

About Rosalind Guy

I'm broken & my soul is weary/ my weary soul rebels, fights/ anything & anyone who tries to heal me/I beat my head against a wall of memories/ trying hard to break free from the chain of memories/ I can only be free by saying it so/ i weave a necklace from words and finally/ I find freedom/ free free free. As you can see, words are powerful to me. As Maya Angelou said, words are wallpaper of the soul. I have lots of nightmarish memories that threaten to break me, but I learned a long time ago about the power of words. They can be used to heal and destroy anything that threatens to destroy the person. Words coupled with love have the power to save and heal. I am author of three books: Skinny Dipping in the Pool of Womanhood, Tattered Butterfly Wings, and Blues of a Love Junkie. I am a high school English teacher. I am a former reporter. I am a mother. I am a woman. I am a fierce advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves, those who's voices go unheard.
