Abused Child


Written by  Joni Caggiano


do not presume to know me

my face a frowning moon

crevices of sadness besmear

a hoary soul who wonders here

wounds scab, heal and gaze

as an eyeless void, she paints

no peak can lug the weight

of a child begotten such a fate

    A tortured child turned into an amazing, loving, thoughtful, talented human being. That is something God gave you my friend. I love you for being just you. You are a gift in my life.
