I extend my hand as you turned away
tossing the last few pieces of my possessions
I quickly fell to my knees grabbing hold of each piece stuffing them into
the green duffel bag
that once belonged to a man most claimed was my father.
Still I am lost but one day I hope to find him
I am broken as I journey the streets unknown
You used the power to turn my life, my world upside down and today
Time heals all wounds but we never forget
Today I am woman
I stand proud completely unashamed of the world I left behind
I hear a knock and find you at my door on bended knee
calling out my name
Once again I extend my hand
as I open my heart, my soul
only this time you bear no resistance
You stare into my eyes with shame on your face
as I help you to your feet.
You ask me why…
In my humble response
I face you and I smile
The “Glory” is mine to give.

This describes the day I was thrown on the streets to survive at 14 with
no place to go and no one to turn to. It only made me stronger in my
journey to survival and I held no hate in my heart. I learned I am worthy
and that all things are possible when we believe.
For the short list of those that cared and have always had my best
interest at heart, I thank you and wrap my arms around you with tears of
For those that still hate and try to tear me down and that list for sure
would extend from where I live to the Himalayan Mountains... know that it
only gets better from here.
See you at the movies!
