Poem- “A Girl’s Wish”

I dreamed…….

Graduating high school with the highest honor/ Being the girl with a strong will to lead others/ Friends will be my keepsakes as we make memories/ Planning the wedding of a lifetime like a celebrity/ Having a loving husband by my side raising kids/ Gaining the respect of many as I do big things

But in reality…..

Graduated with a diploma and scars from bullying/ Was the girl with a sad face who barely said anything/ Suspicious of everyone and was not the popular kid/ I married my insecurities and bind myself to my past/ I have no husband but me and my child at home/ Scared to step out on faith to achieve anything

Where is the shooting star that I can make a wish/ Wishing that my life did not turn out like this/ Or maybe be assured that my life is alright like it is

So what does a girl truly need……………Affirmation

Truth be told….I was already validated before my birth

When God laid eyes on me/ He saw beauty and took pleasure in me/ My big, brown eyes, stringy hair, bad choices/ He saw it all and said it was good/ My looks did not scare Him/ My posture did not disturb Him/ My mistakes and fall-outs did not worry Him/ God knew what He made

Even if others do not see it/ Even if I try to despise or overlook it

Because it is enough to know that God Loves and Accept ME

About Me

Hi..My name is ShuCora Walker. No, I am not the woman in the picture, but my words represent people like her. People who love good conversations. People who enjoy sharing their life stories. People who tell the truth to not only inspire but to heal, learn, and grow. I have been writing since my preteen years and found peace in letting my heart bleed out on the paper through my words. The focus of my writing has always been to share stories of triumph, struggles, and faith because God is the reason why I write. I remember at one point that I wanted to take my life, but God deemed it not to be because He still had a purpose for my life. Now, I am using my words to share my life journey so others can learn from it. Yes, one day I plan to open up this platform to other writers so we can continue to learn from different experiences of life. So, this is a space for anyone seeking to live a life of real freedom and enjoy some good moments along the way…
