Winter Sunset & Poem - "Delicate Subject matter"

8 years 5 months ago #190769 by Shanna-Marie
I've debated for months whether to post this here, but in getting to know some of you folks I feel that it will be OK to share. This one is very special to me.....In my "Real" life, I am also an advocate for a local Crisis Center. This poem was inspired by my experiences and the countless survivors I've been blessed to have had the opportunity to support along on this journey. I also had a little help from my friends, John & Rich. Thank you so much. :)

Thank you John, you're so sweet. My friend, I'm no more special than anyone else Here, I'm just one of the lucky ones. To have been given a second chance in life is truly a blessing, I always thought God must be keeping me alive for a reason, Now I know why....

The photo would be lovely on its own, your poetry makes it inspirational. I worked with families in a different capacity than you, but I know how much what you're doing helps, and that families appreciate someone who helped them along the way. You have a special gift.

I'm not a huge fan of poetry usually but since somebody close to me in my life went through one of these experiences and still goes through this every day, this one touched me. Good work Shanna.

Congratulations Shanna Marie... This poem speaks of things that touch the soul of the reader. Each interpretation will be fitting for each reader that feels it. It also speaks to the courage one can find when it is called for. For all the beautiful words and the shining light in the background it is your bravery and strength that I thank you for.

Well met, my friend.
