Walk My Way

I see
side long glances
hushed whispers
know you point
know you wonder
why I stay
when he so flagrantly wanders.
You do not see the bruises
you see not the bites
the brutal words
tearing through soul
tearing through dignity
threats upon son
lusted looks upon daughter
stay I must
protect them I will
if it cost me
my last breath.
Wooed
loved
strangled
steps of enslavement
money
bled straight through
tied to him
there is no fleeing
no letting go
for should I
children
near and dear
no stability would be had.
Heaved breath
timed tears
blood falls
splatters
went for me
feared for life
hooded eyes
look at me not
until you walk
more than a mile
in these shoes
than come to me
judgement accepted
I promise thee.

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. I am trying. I been working with the public. Family too. Poor daughter caught the virus and I cure her with my natural cures. Eat green food and a lot of fruit. I do the baking soda and water twice a day. You are welcome Jay-lyn.
