I did not know how to explain
the new sensation that came up –
was it pain or happiness?
was it fear or hope?
I do not know.
I heard everyone say this was divine;a true gift of God;
what nobody told me was that,
this “true gift of God”-the divine gift,
was as sharp as a sword;
a sword that could pierce my heart and rip my soul.
And no one was kind enough to tell me
that the wounds left by this “gift”
would take years to heal;
and that the scars would remain forever;
no one had told me
but I accept (with regret)
that this “gift”-this new feeling,
changed my life so drastically forever;
that my life will never be the same (ever).
