The lantern project
A poem By Christine Parrish
There I was all alone at sea
Massive waves crashing down on me
The waves were men that stole my innocence, natural development and form.
The abuse broke my soul, I was left so torn.
I noticed a light in the bleakness of night,
It flickered so gently, it beckoned me slight.
The more I moved closer a rope was thrown out to me,
A man holding a lantern said “come on out of the sea”
Waves crashed on me too and I was left torn’
Surviving the ocean so long, weathered through my experience, but gifted for a charity to be born.
I’m here to help you and give you some hope,
So lets take the first leap and step off this boat.
