Step Up: Conscious Poem


Faded clothing, shoes worn thin,

People say I’m less than them.

Please step up, I need a friend.

A violent family, don’t get much rest,

Forced from bed, like a dog at best.

Please step up, you’re kinder than them.

Sustenance comes from my buildings trash,

A body malnourished, no veggies, no meat.

Please step up, help me to eat.

Coming to school in hopes of escape,

Singled out here, ridiculed, teased.

Please step up, don’t laugh at me.

Sometimes I act out, sometimes I cry,

Stopped pleading for help to whomever’s above.

Please step up, I need your love.

Extremely intelligent, can be funny too,

Not a soul knows, no one will see.

Please step up, help me find me.

Forced inner strength, yet oh so fragile,

I fear all that’s left is fear and hate,

Please step up, don’t leave me to fate.

Didi Oviatt is an intuitive soul. She’s a wife and mother first, with one son and one daughter. Her thirst to write was developed at an early age, and she never looked back. After digging down deep and getting in touch with her literary self, she's writing mystery/thrillers like Search For Maylee, Aggravated Momentum, The Stix, and New Age Lamians(a trilogy to be). Along with a six- piece short story collection called the Time Wasters. She’s also collaborated with Kim Knight in an ongoing interactive short story anthology The Suspenseful Collection. When Didi doesn’t have her nose buried in a book, she can be found enjoying a laid back outdoorsy life. Time spent sleeping under the stars, hiking, fishing, and ATVing the back roads of beautiful mountain trails, and bathing in the desert heat plays an important part of her day to day lifestyle.
