Ignominy to Glory

Tattered and torn.

Beaten and scorned.

Rejected, neglected, 

Abandoned when born.

Surrender and yield;

Potential concealed.

Abused, misused

Wounded, now healed.



Talked Down, walked around.

Now I made it.







Your poem tells the story of every great woman or man who has ever lived-- yourself included. I love your precise use of words. Each word contributes enormously to the poem and you have not over- or understated any of your lines. It all fits perfectly.

Grant-Grey Porter Hawk Guda

Powerful expression!
