Poems for me are a personal and private thing, an intimate creation. I keep each one hidden away and share them rarely. Perhaps, that is why it has taken me three years to finally share this one. So, I consider this action today a big step. Today, I am posting a poem written soon after my first published book debuted.
My first book is titled, A Vision Beyond Abuse. It is my true account of experiencing and enduring an abusive relationship with a spouse who professed his love. My memoir begins like a bad tapestry and slowly becomes beautiful and uplifting as it pivot's around my awakening to God's plan for me.
This is my poem: 'Dark Night'
I sense a need for something greater than self. So, I am led by Christ's love to be an encourager as I share about His faithfulness and grace.
