Worst Fears

My children came into my
Room one winter afternoon
My daughter softly said
Mama we tried to tell you this 
Sometime in the middle of June
We have all decided that we
Have our own life to live
Somewhere down the line
Something had to give

We have decided to take 
You to a home and we
Hope you like it there
Nurses around the clock and
People that really care
I can’t began to tell you
What I felt in my heart
Everything I lived for now
Suddenly torn apart

I saw no regret as I 
Looked in their face                                                                           
My son said mama learn to like it 
Because here you will spend 
The rest of your days
They picked me up and tossed
Me around like a rag doll
I could feel the heat inside as 
My blood began to boil

Two months in that home
My worst fears came to pass
Orderly slapping me around
While others stood back and laugh
They rolled up a newspaper
And hit me on the head
When I needed to use the bed pan
They laughed and said use your bed
I had no strength in my legs
To carry me to the bathroom
Because of that I laid in 
My own waste all afternoon

A young girl came to my room
Carrying my dinner tray                                                                       
She took my urine poured
It in my tea, and said
Drink and eat hearty today
Where are my children
Must this continue be
What did I do so wrong
For this to happen to me?
I heard about the treatment the 
Elderly endure while living in
 This place they call home
But I always knew that in my 
Heart here I didn't belong

My worst fears in 
My whole entire life
Has finally come to pass
I have no more strength
Don’t know how long I will last
There’s nothing I want more
Than to be release from this torment
When I asked my kids to get me out
It turned into an argument
My children said they couldn't
Care for me they rather be alone                                                                  
And that I should try to get
Use to my brand new home

They have children and what
Goes around will come around
As they will plainly see
And they will someday regret
What they didn't have to do to me
I am going to see my Lord
He won’t let this go on
Soon I will be from earth bound
Settling in my Heavenly home
When I see Jesus it will be
Worth the suffering and the pain
My worst fears will have died
And eternal happiness I will gain
