Child Abuse Awareness! A Tuesday Truth Indeed..

Child Abuse Awareness

I’ve told my story,

I’m outside the box

Away from the drawer

Which held all the locks!

I’ve told my story

For the whole world to hear

Of the little girl

Who lived everyday in fear!

I’ve told my story

Of my struggles to belong

Not really knowing

I was a Survivor all along!

I’ve told my story

For little girls like me

Who thinks its impossible

To survive without family!

I’ve told my story

And I will continue to repeat

Until Child Abuse Awareness

Is heard on every street!

I’ve told my story

And the reasons I’m alive

I’ve told my story

So others can also Survive!

Another Poem made it into a Poetry Journal ♡ This time the July 2020 edition of the Cambridge Hall Poetry Journal! And at 11am today… My Poetry is being reviewed by a Literary Group! I guess I really do write the words… You all read 💖

✍📚 An Open Book 📚✍

I write the society of a world gone wrong

The hate, the crimes and the lives now gone

I write the reality the whole world reads

The scars, the wounds, the pain that bleeds

I write the melody the whole world sings

The laughter, the tears, the simple things

I write the love in a world gone cold

The dreams, the wishes and stories untold

I write the words I placed in a poem

For all the world, we call our home.

I read the society, where lies belong

Shame, Secrets and a Shattered song

I read the reality this whole world needs

The survivor’s in courage, forever now leads

I read the melody the whole world brings

The freedom of birds, queens and kings

I read the love this world does hold

Hidden in cracks, waiting to unfold

I read the words, I placed in this poem

From my heart and straight to your home

Written by Catherine Mellen

Thank You Jesus

Help me Jesus, I’m writing a song
A music sheet, where words belong.

There is no rush, take your time
Making our words into a rhyme

Beautiful sounds for all to hear
Echoing in halls far and near.

Help me Jesus, it needs to be heard
Give Peace a Chance into a word.

A rhythm, a sound, a single prayer
Serenity in words for all to hear

A hand, support, a strangers smile
Contagious with kindness in a single file.

Help me Jesus, the world seems so cold
So many promises are yet to be told.

Clean up the streets, rid the world of hate
For the children of tomorrow, it’s not too late.

Give Peace a Chance and keep it going
Kindness and smiles will continue flowing

Thank You Jesus, I know you can hear
Together we made this song a prayer

An Agent called my project ‘Riveting’ ✍📚 Chronicling my Childhood of Horrific Abuse, Horrible Neglect, Cruelty and Abandonment! Read About My Life But Don’t Have Any Pity… I Am A Strong Irishgirl From An All American City Did I tell you about my Blog?….

Only One World

Why did it come to so much disgrace?

Why did America tear up the human race?

What gives the US the God damn right

To claim it only belongs to the privileged white?

Why must a black man live a life in fear?

Why must America stand by without a care?

What gives the US the God damn right

To claim it only belongs to the privileged white?

It’s only one world, which we all must share

For every boy & girl, a right to live without living in fear!

It doesn’t matter the color, for which you hold

Nor matters the religion, for which you are told.

We are all given one body, for which we must live

Equal is the reasoning, for which we must give!

It’s only one world, which we all must share

Equal with love, for there is no compare!

Why did it come to so much hate?

Why did America let it continue to circulate?

It’s time it stops, let’s put an end to this fight

This land belongs to all, black, brown, not just the white!

Why must it come to so many deaths?

Why did America witness a man’s last breath?

It’s been too long, a change needs to come soon

No matter our color, we all sleep under the same moon!

A Stairway

Up to Heavens stairs, An Angel does Wait…
Shining with happiness, At the doors of Heavens gate!

Inside the Angel’s blossom with Glee…
Forever there is happiness throughout Eternity

Don’t be afraid should your light Shine…
Everyone becomes Angels, One day in Time!

The heart stops from all the aching and Pain…
The Soul lives on from all in life you Gain!

So, Climb up those stairs, There’s no need to Hesitate…
There’s so much happiness once your through Heavens Gate!!

Querying

A querying I will go

A querying I will go

Emailed my submission

A querying I will go

It started off real slow

First page was years ago

It’s finally in completion

And polished with a glow

Pages I had to type

Editing was the hype

My book is finally complete

My writing skills are ripe

Some lines I had to wipe

I complained without a gripe

A rejection letter to delete

And an agent I will swipe

Proposal written well

A story I have to tell

I’ll spread awareness

With words I often yell

Querying can be hell

Making fingers swell

Guidelines are for fairness

An Agents calling bell

Proofread once again

Spacing lines too thin

Hoping for a book show

A best seller for the win

Attach files in trash bin

No writing with a pen

A querying I will go

Until an Agent says I’m in!

I was a young teenager in early 1980s when I was first called ‘Lowell’s female version of Jack Kerouac’… I remember thinking “Never heard of him?” 🤣   Here is a Poem based on my Memoir ‘A Life Given To Me’

⚘One Life in One City⚘

Sometimes I wonder… Why it was meant to be.

Living a life… The one given to me.

The heartaches came… So very young.

Only a child… My life had just begun.

I made it by & managed alone… Found my way, too my own home.

Already living what was meant to be… This is the Life Given To Me.

Read About My Life… But Don’t Have Any Pity.

I’m A Strong Irish Girl From An All American City.
