HE TOOK EVERYTHING AWAY FROM ME

He took everything away from me Even that which I knew I never had

He took my heart, my love and my thoughts

He took my memories of that which was good and

He left me with that which was bad

He took everything away from me

Even that which I never knew I had

He took my courage,my spark, my sass

He took the womanly things about me and

He left me with the meaning of sad

He took my energy and then all I could do was eat

And turn fat

He took everything away from me

Even that which I never knew I had

He took my happy, the plans we made and

The role which I played

He took my laughter and my smile away

He criticised and manipulated me

In every conceivable way

Which made me mad and filled rage

 

He took everything away from me

Even that which I never knew I had

He took the goal post and placed it somewhere else

He took my creativity and then it became

Dark, cold and lonely like a grave

He took my words and turned it into dust

When he told me he loved me

I could never understand

Because what I had been reduced to was smaller

Than a grain of sand

He took everything away from me

Even that which I never knew I had

But what I am left with is my SPIRIT, HOPE and

God's Almighty hand

Knowing that tomorrow I'll STAND

I'll face the NEW ME and know that

I AM WHO I AM

I'll take back that which he took from me

Remembering that no one can ever really take

The Gifts that God has bestowed upon and within me

HE TOOK EVERYTHING AWAY FROM ME BUT NOW I'll TAKE THEM BACK!!

        Great poem about hitting the bottom and making the choice to heal and becoming stonger because of it...
