By Choice
14 August, 2003
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


Alone I walk through life
I choose to stand behind my walls
Trying to except the truth
That I too am worthy
No matter to fate

I refuse to allow the loss
that could come at any time
I refuse you the pain
that loving me will cause
Alone I stand

Only a taste of love felt
to last me through my journey
I long to allow you in
Yet chase away the dream
But I need love still

Alone I walk through life
I spare you the undue pain of me
A victim of my choice
It doesn't stop the yearning
Yet I still choose alone

excellent writing......

your piece of work wasn't just excellent it was fantastic.....i loved it!!!hard to believe..but many of us do choose this life..i know it too well...i loved the way being loved by another soul,made me feel inside and out.....but i dreaded how losing that love to death made me lose ground the worst feeling ever possible....the fear of losing an awful experience that breaks many hearts...i enjoy all of your writings....they touch the core of the mind ,heart and soul..

Exactly how I feel

This poem is exactly how I feel. Towards my father who hasn't been there. My 16 years of life my father has been there maybe half of that. My parents are no longer together, but My mom found her a husband who I can depend on and who I love to call my dad!
