THE FIRE INSIDE- A poem

She is fragile, but her fight runs deep, so deep she doesnt know when it’s saving her or hurting her.  An inner strength so fiery it must hurt her in order to save her. She fights everyday but Mediocrity and strife are very persistent, will she remain consistent or give in to life.  A fire burns inside of her,  the flame is seen thru her eyes yet they still yurn to touch her.  She sees the fear,  the judgment in their eyes when they stare,  when will they notice it’s a plea for help-like a safety flare.  Sadly they ignore it and their encounter ends with a glare. Her strength is viewed as anger,  her faith as madness, and her fear as sadness. But she keeps moving,  for God has given her another day and his word is assurance that all will be okay and through his grace she will find a way…

Author: Downnotout1

Taneshia Brown, a native of New Mexico was born the second child of Howard and Fannie Baker. She was raised by both parents in a loving home with two other sisters. Although as a child she dreamed of becoming a lawyer, life would bring her to another passion – writing. This passion is demonstrated in her first book, “My Journey, His Purpose”. In "My Journey, His Purpose," the author relives both painful and difficult memories to unearth the power of God’s power and purpose. She began writing in high school a part of a post traumatic therapeutic regimen. As a rape victim, single mother, and domestic violence survivor, she fought through the low places in life to acquire several college degrees. She later sharpened her writing skills while blogging for The Examiner, and Jambalaya Magazine. The author has continued to rise from the ashes under the cover of God to volunteer, guest speak, start a non-profit organization, and now write her own memoirs in order to reach and teach others who have found themselves in similar circumstances. Her journey has taken her from a broken, battered, and lost shadow to a fulfilled, renewed woman, wife, mother, and survivor. Her unique voice speaks volumes to tragedy and triumph. Now she is here to blog about life and its intricacies.
