The journey of a woman

Atim Oliver Mercy
Posted August 3, 2021 from Uganda

 

A little girl fought with tears in her eyes Trembling on efforts of a drawing for which she had to prove The harsh words, lie, cheat broke her trust on her own kind And she steps uncertainly to look for comfort in friend’s

A teenager, hidden behind books so deep It was her escape from the world she feared as ugly The battles to earn a place in the lives of those whom she loved Left her homeless at heart and angry questioning her worth

Then came the so called “love”, painting colours of deceit Where loyalty and love portrayed only on earthly treats Until along the road someone sparked faith in her at last So took a turn in a chapter of life, valued above all, yet read as past

Now a women, unknown what marriage is, enters the home  Scared by the touch of love or rights of a man, lost her place She fought her own demons and found meaning in it Realizing,  the perfect happily ever after belong only in the stories 

Then came motherhood, in her loneliness a  little life held her  Night cramps with no comfort, tired and in pain, yet never lost hope As she stared at the little soul, the most beautiful journey so far unrevealed  She cried tears of joy, here is a soul bound to her with love, so noble and kind

Now a women, yet the girl craving for love lived on The teenager seeking the dream in shadows, questioning her worth Until finally broken again and again, she sets herself free from definition of others Her wings, her actions,  are hers alone , with strength from divine ,continues a journey of a woman.

Thank you for sharing. Sometimes, the reality is full or challenges and may be ugly sometimes. God has given us some challenges and we need to overcome it. We need to believe our faith. God will support us to become stronger.
Be Strong! May Almighty God bless you!

Again dear sister, thank you for your words. I clearly see the transformation and surprises from stage to stage in a woman's life. The journey is not easy, but with Divine Intervention, nothing is impossible. Much love to you sister.

Hello dear sister Megsmueller, yes it may not be easy, but giving up shouldn't be an option.

Dear Atim,
Life is full of wicked surprises in the midst of our naturally human evolution. Our imaginations take away for just moments. But reality is always a reckoning. I am so glad she survived her journey.
Hugs...JoMarie
