    Finding Freedom

    The arrows sunk deepPiercing my heart with words               of death. When set to steal, kill, and destroy               is there hope for joy? My strength fails!Trembling to stand…Aching to breathe… I cry out in faithComplicated by unruly emotion               and physical distress.…
