The Colour of Redemption




The Color of Redemption

 

Gone is the shame you made me feel, the guilt I learnt to breathe,

Out of the darkest ocean,
Integrity pulled at me.

My lungs reject your judgement,
they are re-filled with the truth.

I am not confined by who you are,
I am a prisoner set loose.

Engulfed no more by conditional love ,
my wings have been set free,

Stand up, you beautiful creature,
take a look at what you can be.


Lorna Malan



I am a 27 year old female writer from a small town on the KZN South Coast of South Africa. Writing has been my passion for over 12 years now. With Copy writing pieces done and my own blog, which is mostly very creative and about every day life, I've now included more poetry and I am in the process of finishing my first book. I have two beautiful children that share my love for creative arts and writing. I am in love with literature and think life is dull without it. https://www.facebook.com/Life-in-letters-and-words-309767909488710/

  1. I love the metaphor you carry through with breathing. The last lines are powerful.
