Pain this world gave me Pain of not caring Pain of rejection Pain of love Pain of life Pain of suffering Pain of confusion Pain of oppression Pain of depression Pain of madness Pain of sadness Pain of now, hurts I can’t stop thinking about this life called pain Through pain I gain confidence strength and patience Without it I’m useless -Arneteria Benford
in the valley of death i knew no light was taught no rights At the stake. The veil fell, And my true self was shown. Amongst the ashes, I made a home. Wrongs never righted. Courage overcome fear. Heart overcame the mind. Ashes of the matter, I feathered. And behoveth I grew, like a Phoenix. Awaken. Arisen. Anew.
