A War I Couldn’t Win

My life is a war that was never meant to be
won. A war that was over before I was even
born. Did you not know that if he couldn’t love you
he would not choose to love me? You had to know
the one who never tried to love you
couldn’t possibly love me. And you stood by,
pretended not to see as he unraveled pieces of
my life. You knew he would hurt me while you were
trying to pretend that love was the reason you chose
to put me in the line of fire with you. And do you know
there are still nights when I force myself not to fall
asleep because I’m trying to wound up the parts of me
that you let him unravel from me. Why did you
destroy parts of me that you were supposed to
protect? Is it because you knew my life would be
a war I’d never be able to win?

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.
