Flashback Friday Poetry: The Life Giver

she is the Life Giver
and the maker of pain
passing along what they taught her
the monsters of her shame
the Creature of False Belief
and the Taker of Innocent Game
create and nurture her grief
for me to one day claim
she attempts not to notice
she won’t accept the blame
her only true crime now
is pretending it all away
while striving for nothing
with everything to gain
she is the Life Giver
and Taker just the same

Early poetry from James. From the poetry collection Pariah Bound: The Lonesome Poetry.
