A Single Mom---Runaway Dad

She is lonely, scared and frail
Locked up in a dirty jail
Her babies taken far away
Just because she couldn't pay
For their diapers, clothes and food
So she thought of something shrewd
Steal everything she needed
Getting caught she begged and pleaded
For a chance to pay it back
But no one gave her any slack
The babies pulled from her care 
All her dreams now disappear
Of bedtime stories every night
Watching them grow was delight
Now she sits alone to think
Why people pushed her to the brink
And not helping when she asked
It is such a simple task
If you start a family
Don't run the moment that you see
Things are getting way to tough
Because it just isn't enough 
Saying you'll man up and provide
For the babies in your life
Then turn your back when they need
Money for rent and food to eat
Leaving a scared single mom
To do something that will harm
Her life and the babies future
She never planned to live this torture
