A woman finding herself

Growing up I was lost. Wrong choices and bad experiences seemed the order of the day, but now that I am older I understand I had to take this journey. It turns out I am happy with the woman I have become...

A mysterious woman with a deep soul and lots of thoughts to share... This then my short biography for now... more »

Best Poem of chantelle ribeiro

Child Soldiers...

Innocence lost in the desert winds
lifeless eyes stare
devoid of childish thrills
Adventures a distant memory
only survival instinct remains
The savage brainwashing
A precious child
forced into a life of crime
a machete caked with blood
soaking into the dunes
staring out from a dirty bandanna
devoid of emotion
on the horizon the azure ocean
but the wondrous nature of that child
stripped bare
vicious and cruel
he stares
Child soldiers
witnesses to evil so profound
their families murdered
before them ...
