A Wounded Soul

By R. Kilani

I sat down in a chair at a salon parlor,

A woman, next to me, looked swamped with clamor,

With her cell phone in one hand and a cigarette in the other,

She spewed some nasty words.. Oh brother!

What an angry woman, I said, but little did I know,

That the person sitting next to me started to seem like a foe,

Her cigarette ash was heavily landing on my lap,

Which made me think of nothing but to give her a slap.

Shrugging her shoulders with eyes open wide,

I knew the voice provoking her on the other side,

Was belittling her feelings and yet enjoying the ride,

And she was just one more soul it victimized.

I wanted to interrupt her but realized that wasn’t the way to go,

As she hung up and her tears started to flow,

Kneeling on the floor as weak as can be,

Her heart was obviously broken and her eyes could barely see,

That there is so much to life than abuse,

Which every victim woman or a child deserves to refuse.

I introduced myself and offered my help as a coach,

And wanted to make her feel I’m someone she can approach,

She took my card and promised to call,

She said she only wanted happiness, “That’s all!”

But unless she was internally happy, who can please her soul?

“No man, money, house, car or store,

Can bring back to me a dignity that he stole!”

I explained to her there was more to life than that,

But she looked like she’d just been clubbed with a bat.

“Give it time”, I said, and “we’ll work it out together”,

“Unless you choose to let go, you’ll be miserable forever”,

“But if you move on, you’ll set yourself free and feel better”.

“I’m willing to do whatever it takes to get out of this”, she said,

“For the pain inside me every night, haunts me in bed”.

So we got in touch and watched our partnership grow,

With each phase marking a significant goal,

A dishonorable man, with whom she obsessed,

Became a dead history she conquered with success,

A light in her life continued to shine,

Where everything, previously destroyed, later seemed fine.
