I believe I wrote this in 1991 during very rough and depressing times with my son's father. I remember him making some snide comment because I had accidentally left it on the living room table after writing it. Obviously, he knew he was the cause of my bitter attitude.

The light reflects upon the walls

But I am reflecting nothing but darkness

The darkness of my soul outshines the brightness of my life

The bitter taste of my tears is the reason for my bitter attitude

I have tried so hard and become so soft

My body is here, but my life and my soul are in limbo
