Defining Moment Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION

In a small dark room

Stumbling crashing

Sorrow full in heart's content

Gasping Reaching

Not knowing what to do

Hopeless dying

Opening Pandora's box

All the secrets and scandal escaping

Like salt water waves splashing on my face

A story emerging of betrayal, inhumanity, indifference, and evil.

A lone soul to struggle with Lucifer's doing's. Ending with a shatter

I soaked in the words

Dark, heart wrenching, seductive, a tainted history but with remarkable courage

So sick and twisted of nothing but horror.

For me truth and beauty come from within the evil.

It's arms strong and comforting wrapping around my aching soul.

Faith giving me a fighting chance

Hanging on to my treasure

Simple, dazzling, beautiful

Worth more than all the diamonds and gold in the world.

A soft candle glow will light the way.

Note: This is based on how the book Shake Hands with the devil made a huge impact on my life.

Since reading the book ''Shake Hands with the Devil'' my life has changed completely. I started writing poems on the subject of the Rwanda genocide and are based on my thoughts and perspective.
