Inner Strength

No one ever saw the tears that fell
no one ever saw her sorrow
no one knew the pain inside
for she would never acknowledge.
She was strong for herself
she steeled her heart
she stood tall
she braved the wicked waves
with a glint in her eye.
When the bedroom door closed
and all are asleep
she curled within
letting the pain seep.
She had to be strong for herself
no one else would be
she had to stand tall
show the world she would not cry.
Behind doors fastened shut
emotions contained were let loose
and she felt……
the pain
the fear
the anguish
the anger
the hate.
Screams that were stifled
by day
were released at night.
She felt.
She felt it all.
She fell to her knees
for strength only goes so far
until it becomes too much
and strength is not enough any more.

A single hard working mom of a soon to be teenage son. A poet and story teller I have wanted to write since I was a child. This space is where I share stories about myself and my life and the creative poetry that stirs my soul. My hope is you will pull up a chair and a cup of coffee delving into the world that I offer and you find simple enjoyment for a few moments. Welcome to The Wonderful & Wacky World of One Single Mom

        1. Until a child cries how will a mother know s/he is hungry or something? We are social animals, not islands. If you see someone giving you such a fake response or a smile despite you knowing s/he needs hep, what will you do?

            1. Thats what I asked earlier. Why the need for such suffering in silence when there are awesome people like yourself in this world?

              1. Sometimes especially if one is depressed it is hard to reach out and ask for help. One feels/hears a boice in their head telling them they are a bother. No one will listen/have time. In other cases it is because that is who the person has always been. The one everyone else turns to for help so to appear weak/in need of help is hard to comprehend. Which is how people can be blinded.

                1. Depression is curable. However the second type can’t be true to him/herself when they don’t stop others from appraching them, why hesitate returning them the same favor? A good person with masks, ain’t there something wrong with that?
