Once Upon a Time

Once upon a time 

He swam to her

They locked arms 

And she grew 

.

.

She grew 

She grew 

.

.

She surprised her makers with a hello 

She wasn’t planned and

They didn’t know how to take the news 

.

.

She was fighter 

She lived through the doctors visits

Her heart beat for her another day 

So excited for life 

She left her home a month early 

Her landlord, not a word to say

.

.

She was loved, she knew 

But unwanted, she felt 

Each morning she feared the ridicule 

Each night she shuffled the cards she was dealt 

.

.

Every moment that she had a breath to take

She feared the choices that she would ultimately have to make 

To stand up for the person she knew she was 

To stand up to the people who were suppose to show her love 

.

.

She met him

They locked arms 

.

.

She grew 

She grew 

She grew 

.

.

He took her away from home 

Saved her 

But broke her too 

.

.

With him 

She began to learn what it meant to be herself 

.

.

Wanting to be loved 

But he reinforced the doubt she felt

.

.

It imprinted on her 

Like the skin she lives in 

.

.

Penetrated her mind 

Inhabited the dreams she slept with 

.

.

She lived her life onward 

Pushed through 

Defeated 

.

.

She made sure 

It was never a man she needed 

.

.

She poured out her heart 

Giving all her love 

To those she cared for 

.

.

From those she loved 

She never expected more 

.

.

She wondered sometimes 

Why the journey 

Played out the way it did 

.

.

Why one survived 

And the other one didn’t 

.

.

She questioned sometimes 

Her purpose 

Her place in this time

.

.

She wondered 

When the chaos would end 

She wondered

When peace would take over her life 

.

.

The question remains 

And she may not ever know 

.

.

But for the first time 

Since she was a little girl

She saw the treasure waiting for her

At the end of the rainbow
