Mama, mama, mama
Didn’t you hear me cry?
Didn’t you hear me call?
Calling for you in that nightmare;
That left me weak
That left me bruised
That shattered me
That had me hurting
That left me scarred
Why did you?
Why did you let go;
Let go of this child?
Why leave me Motherless;
To never know your touch
I had to grow fast mama…
I learned to conceal pain
I learned to persevere
I accepted rejection
I accepted shame
I had to survive!

I believe the Truth is in Christ; He who died for our sins and knows our pain beyond our human imagination. Thank you 💞
I agree. The truth is in God. His example of courage has to be followed by humans and they need to follow a truthful path to reach God.
Sad, but so true for many people!
Yes it is true for many.
My heart go out to all those who never knew what it felt like to have a mother. This is a beautiful piece.
Thank you Debs 💞
I feel tears in my eyes when reading this ❤
This poem is a voice that was. A clueless child that didn’t know where to turn in the absence of a mother she had lost at the age of 3. There has been healing of the heart since then and Grace found through Christ.
Wonderful. Thank you.
Thank you so much for passing in my little virtual house. I believe in writing and in love for writers. We all live life but some of us need to transfer their thoughts on paper or pc. This is my only way…creativity and respect for everyone who needs to speack with his heart. Paola.
Thank you Paola. You are absolutely right. Every one has a story about life even though some of us choose to say it out loud. My way of pouring my heart out has always been through writing and I am thankful for that. Hugs.
Powerful and heartbreaking.
Thank you Barry. It is a cry of child full of questions after the death of her mama and taking a hit of abusers.
