Secret Knowledge


 There is a feeling of betrayal

When you are insulted by your husband time after time





Wounded by each insult 

All the inspired moments

All the gleaming thoughts

All your happiness

Along with the secret knowledge of believing in yourself are leaving your mind


But one day

By craving life

By hope and healing

By crushing the weight of pain beneath a gray sky

Your anguished spirit beating against your mind

And you

Wake up

With a thousand happy dreams swirling around your heart
