One Day Is Like Another

She fell to her knees from that blow
Where she has been ever since.

From this position, she has been
Struck, kicked, pinched, bullied,
And bourn five children.

From here, she has washed, cleaned,
Cooked, prayed, and cursed.

Her head comes to his waist
And that suits him.

One day is like another.
He stays the same,
And her knees are black and bleeding.

    about your poem: wow... About that bleeding, maybe she should not ask for change, and just pray to God, in helping her move on... Love this... Linda

    Beverly, ~ Did you really think I'd leave without stopping by to say Good-bye. Never, Muwahahahaha! Why the word alone sounds -forever and difficult. LOL, I love this place and the poets. A couple of soup friends and I are taking a short vacation. REMEMBER! The Best Thing About Leaving is the "RETURN." I will leave in good faith, in hopes you don't forget me, and you are looking forward in having me visit you and your poems in the future. HAHA, I will bring a new me when I return. "I Can't wait to see you again:) If you ever want me to read a certain poem or you wish to say hi... Drop by my E-Mail Address. apoetdestroyer@yahoo.com :) Sincerely yours ~Always & Forever~ The Sweet Poet Destroyer

    Dear pd, this is the first time that I remember you mentioning the word "return". I am so glad that you are considering that possibility. I hope that you know how important you are to the Soup. Bev

    The foundations of these days needs to shake with such overwhelming force, it seems. Can it not get better than this sad scenario? This was an ominous, yet powerful writing.
