Shoe's Older Than Me

by December Davis

Though numb,
They stood.
They were silent in infliction.
Knowing how life has a way of ending...
to begin.
Where I was raped of heart
and left with pride.
They stood.
 when the fear of life
colored my faith invisible
they persisted:
“There is treasure in darkness”
For prayers
and women,
That believe.
