Hush Little Baby

Hush little baby
do not cry
mommy’s gonna tell you a lie
daddy’s gonna ruin your life
brother’s gonna usurp your role.
Hush little baby
do not cry
today is not the day to die.
Dignity spread thin
legs spread wide
vapid look in her eyes.
Hidden away
shoved down deep
little girl screaming
no one to hear
no one to care
no one to save her.
Burgeoning monster
emotions stripped clean
rage
fury
savagery
boring into her bones.
Complacent no more.
Death
destruction
devastation
she did rue
not at all
doling out
vengeance
bitter laugh upon her lips.
Keeper…..
of secrets
of silence
eyes dead upon her gaze
mouth twisted
sardonic grin
head cocked
amazed by her artistry.
Hush little baby
do not cry
mommy’s gonna lay down and die
daddy’s gonna beg for his life
brother’s gonna wish 
he had been left for dead.
Hush little baby
do not cry
today is the day
they all will die.

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
