My Bruised Heart Needs To Be Heard

This poem is a battle cry. It is a reaffirmation of the author's belief in her own strength and her ability to shed shackles and rise.

This poem is a battle cry. It is a reaffirmation of the author’s belief in her own strength and her ability to shed shackles and rise.

I have spent a lifetime in the shadows
Veiled from the world
Following mutely in your footsteps,
Hiding behind your form.

I have been stowed, in the gallows
Like a veiled Madonna
Shown only to enhance your stature
And then shut out again.

That has been my life, my destiny.
So far that I have accepted,
But the fires of feminism that rage
In me, refuse to ebb now.

My battered soul demands succour
My bleeding lips and
My bruised heart, need to be heard
For enough is enough!
