A Queen on Her Knees

The Verse

The Thrive Global Community welcomes voices from many spheres. We publish pieces written by outside contributors with a wide range of opinions, which don’t necessarily reflect our own. Community stories are not commissioned by our editorial team, and though they are reviewed for adherence to our guidelines, they are submitted in their final form to our open platform.

There’s a shadow

A dullness

A darkness that lurks. 

A misfit 

A bandit

A home at its worst.

There’s a mess

A stampede 

A lost set of keys… 

A door that won’t open 

A Queen on her knees.

Begging and pleading for a life 

Unlike this…

Where love and forgiveness is endless, pure bliss.

She seeks  

And she searches…

Her strength it emerges. 

She screams and she yells

She whispers the verses.

Today and tomorrow are each filled with sorrow,

She knows not what to do but her heart she must follow.

In the end she will choose only the moments that matter,

For her heart filled with love no longer can shatter.
