Title: Fields of healing
Post by warrior_redbird on Jul 22nd, 2004 at 8:07pm
Eyes but no Vision
There is no face near my bed.
Ears but No Hearing
Must block the whispered words he says.
Will but not Freedom
Can't push him away from me.
Voice but no speech
Don't tell again they don't believe.
Feet but can't run
No place that will shelter me.
Heart but no rhyme
Stopped by fear afraid to beat.
Mind but no plan
Obey my elders always

Hope and a prayer
There is a place for me to hide.
Eyes that see-
A tree where I sit in sunlit safety.
Ears that hear-
A bubbling brook runs near by.
Hands that Heal-
A Friend there to hold me tight.
Voice that speaks-
Those gentle words again tonight.
Heart That Beats-
Soft rhyme soothing sounds of peace
Feet that are free-
Find fields of green and butterflies.

The name of this one is
Fields of Green and Butterflies

The 1st half of the poem has the fear my grandfather caused at he sought me out night after night.
The second half of the poem is the place I would go in my head to hid until the abuse was over.
It is this place that has allowed me to escape from painful circumstances time and time again and it is this place (among other things) that has triggered the diagnosis of Dissociative Personality Disorder.

To see this and others I wrote in 2004  go to:

In the meantime I will gather them all together in order and place them on your boards so those who desire can travel the road with me to the understanding I found in 2004 .
As stated previously this stuff cycles and so I have begun again.. when the sadness and grief comes I write. I have to get it out or I will go crazy.
