My Hope. My Wish.

You might have the best of me tonight.
But one day you won’t cut through my skin and bones.
You won’t make me tremble with your words.
This is my hope, this is my wish on a star.
Though it may seem so far,
A little part of me is dying to believe.

I will be all you never wanted me to be.
The now loner a future warrior.
Skin and bones may bleed and break.
But tomorrow may not be the same.
So take your words, take your hate.
Guilt will lessen and I won’t be chained by shame.

Hear my words I am saying tonight.
All these swords you throw at me will someday miss.
You won’t make me stutter with your strength.
This is my hope, this is my wish on a star.
Though you won’t seem to care,
Your words won’t have power over me someday.

Someday, if not today.
I’ll stand and rise again.
And I won’t be the same.
Someday, maybe tomorrow
You’ll see a different me.
A stronger, a wiser, a fighter.

You won’t have power over me.


About Lisa's Blog

Hi, I'm Lisa. I recently graduated from Gannon University with a Bachelors degree in Liberal Arts. For the past 3 months I have been looking for a job. My life has been boring. I'm trying to find something to amuse it. I started going to the gym to better my health and lift 50lbs. There's a blog idea! I will be 24 in October. I'm thinking about reading the Bible and having my own Busy Person's Retreat. Gannon offers BPR once each semester. Basically, you spend 30mins with God and 30mins with a Spiritual Director. My personal BPR will be 30mins with God reading a verse from the Bible or listening to a song and journaling. I love being creative. I've been writing poetry since I was in 4th grade. I'm interested in lyric writing but don't think I'm a great lyricist. I played Clarinet in middle school and high school. I got my first guitar a week before I turned 16. Took a year of lessons then stopped. Volunteering at church for Vacation Bible School was my life! I loved it! This year I will be volunteering for Religious Education. I have no idea what I will be doing there. I'm nervous but at the same time excited! I don't know what I want to be or do. I don't have any future plans. My mind gets empty when I think of my future. I really don't think about it much. I stay focused on the hear and now. I love baking brownies, cooking ramen noodle soup and velveeta. I know how to knit only one way. I one time made 6 scarfs in a month for my housemates at college. I have no idea how to end this. So, I will end it this way. If you have any questions or comments please feel free to ask.
