She has a fragile heart
Which is tearing her apart
But she bears it all
To make it through the downfall.

She has a sensitive soul
Which is slipping from her control
But she stays strong
To withstand the storm.

She is emotionally scarred
And feels nervous when it rains hard
But she’s constantly wrestling
Because she will not be settling.

She is physically abused
And her compassion is misused
But she keeps telling herself
That she belongs somewhere else.

Her world is crumbling
And every word she says comes stumbling
But she searches for hope
In stars through a telescope.

Her eyes are bleeding
And her heart barely beating
But she is walking on her own
Healing her soul and the world as she goes.

I believe that stories help us to escape this dim world for a few moments and that is why I write. Story writing is my passion and I've been writing stories and poems for quite some time! I tend to write stories in the form of poetry which is mainly about women empowerment and feminism. I believe poetry has the power to give an insight into the inner workings of the mind.
