by Ashley Hoffman
Walking on eggshells. Afraid to stand - afraid to say. Gun waving around. Don’t smile. Obey. No family. No friends. Isolate. Take your keys away. No escape. The Word of Life, Gathering dust each day. Pick it up - read. And secretly pray. A shelter of safety- Brings a new day. A voice of hope. A light ray. Strength arose. The screams fade. Fear doesn't stay. Love wins this game.
