Mother In Need

Dealing with the constant abuse

Making up worthless excuses

Day after day choosing to stay

Lacking the courage to walk away

 ~

Exploding under the cover of night

Defenseless against a crumpling strike

Past out cold from the solid blows

Awakens to see her children know

~

Discovering an internal strength

Holding tightly to her treasured faith

Flees with her children from the violence

Seeks shelters and holy spirit for guidance

 ~

Struggling a little less each and every day

Finally, beginning to see hope and a way

Satisfied, to sleep at ease through the night

Overwhelmed, by a generous surprise

 

Inspired by The Reverie Journal – Making Headlines Challenge, which was  to scour the news for inspiration. I decided to go with local news ABC7 Mother in Need and a heart warming story about a homeless mother of three who survived domestic abuse and was given a car with a trunk full of groceries.
