Mommy Where Did You Go

In and out it comes and goes
confusion along with grief

Back and forth it rocks
showing minute signs of relief

Questions so many
Answers so few

Searches of parties
Searches of you

Anger is it's feet, that walk across the heart
Sadness is it's hands, that seem to rip it apart

You left us, you went away
for some unknown reason
You chose,or was forced
not to stay

For years that seem no end,
I cry, I wait, I hide

For years so cold back then,
without you by our side.

Needing you more, that darkness needs light
We needed a stronger you, we needed you to fight.

BLACK WOMAN, BLACK MOTHER, BLACK QUEEN

Your children still need you,
the answer to our dream.

It matters not the facts of your dilemma,
the facts of your pain.
Strong family ties, yet still here for the gain

It matters not, what we did or did not know
It matters only room for forgiveness to grow.

In and out it comes
God will the pain ever cease?

God say's..... 

"Come follow me my child, for I shall give you peace 
He did.

Mommy where do you go?
Somewhere, Some Place, only God knows.

    First let me tell you - that you have written a beautiful poem, with a lot of pain and deep feelings. It takes courage to write somethin like this. I know because my mom left us too. We have to learn to forgive. I also see that you are new here. Welcome to the Soup. Keep writing. Lucilla
