Through the Frozen Falls offers a collection of poetry that captures the innermost emotions of author Mary Lou before, during, and after her recollection of experiencing sexual abuse in her childhood. These verses are presented in two parts. The poems of the first part were written at a time when Mary Lou’s emotions were stagnant and frozen. Hurt and angry, she felt very alone on a journey of painful discovery. In the verse presented in the second part of the collection, she finds a sense of peace and calmness surrounding her as her world thaws into an amazing sea of life and forgiveness. Through this tough, cathartic passage, she offers thanks to God, the author of her forgiveness, for providing her with the courage to share her journey of healing. Awakened Insight How many mixed emotions can one mind even hold As many new adventures surprisingly unfold To have such a powerful surge of anger aimed at one So deep and full of fire a rage enough to stun. And yet, I feel such caring for another whom I adore Such wonderful moving emotions that I’ve never felt before. So unlike each other these feelings more than express The vicious cycle in contrast that unwillingly I must possess. How enormous is this heartache which measures my total mistrust What should have been eternal love has dissolved into pure disgust. How through the numbness did this spark ignite, Without any warning, without any fight ?
