Miss Kimberly Parker’s, This Alien, is this month’s Healing Through Poetry feature:
This Alien inside my body is an uninvited guest. I didn’t ask you to come by, why do I need the stress?!
This Alien inside my body can’t take away my life, I won’t give in without a fight!
This Alien inside my body is trying to break me down;
but the love and support of family lifts me up beyond bounds.
I’m climbing higher and higher with my relationship with God;
for I know He has my best interest at heart while I go through this Fog.
This Alien inside my body won’t go anywhere further, as I’ve willed it to stand down and where there’s a will there’s a way.
For truth’s prevailing…and the truth is..the Alien inside my body is an unwelcomed guest.
So GET OUT, STAND DOWN as I trample on you to LIVE MY LIFE FULLY! I’m going to LIVE and YOU – ALIEN – ARE THE ONE WHO IS GOING TO DIE!
