            STRENGTH

The girl went out to the garden

And saw the wildflowers there.

She needed comfort and beauty,

To find someone to care,

 

Whether or not she made it,

And survived another year.

Her heart was torn and weary.

She knew that death was near.

 

Soon, she would be discovered

By those who looked for her.

They wanted her to follow,

And accept what would occur.

 

They had high expectations,

For a little girl of five.

They knew she had it in her

To persist and stay alive.

 

They knew she would defy them,

Refuse to do their will.

They tried to break her spirit, 

But she fought them still.

 

For her heart was pure and gentle.

Her soul was clean and fine.

One day she was going to heaven.

It was part of God’s design.

 

She knelt and kissed the roses,

And she stroked the butterflies.

She stared at the dark, blue sky,

Saw the kindness in God’s eyes.

 

She laid in the fields of clover,

And smelled honeysuckle sweet.

They could hurt her mortal body.

But her soul knew not defeat.

 

She trained her mind to focus

On the beauty all around.

She heard them come to get her.

She left, without a sound.

 

On the ground was written a message,

Left to whoever came along:

“I know that My God loves me.

I know that I’ll be strong.”

 

“So don’t you ever worry,

That I’m not going  to be okay.

For I know God is with me.

I’ll  be fine today.”
