Sad girl rising


Sad girl rising

Let me tell you about this girl I know
My cousin, this girl be
Her life has been so very sad
But how wonderful is she
She was a wild child, till she married
And had her first born child
When she found out that his brain was damaged
It really drove her wild.

She took the Doctor through the courts
Then fought for ten long years
To get the money she deserved
And she cried so many tears
She gained a million pound at last
To help her with the lad
And yet the damage it was done
And it really drove her mad.

Her and her hubby cared for he
And gave their lives to him
It was a twenty four, seven job
But at times it got real grim
She would do just anything
To make his life more sweet
But when she got that Parkinson’s
She was close on to defeat

But no, she struggled with the odds
And though it’s ten years on
Never does this girl give up
When all her hope seems gone
She smiles, and carries on with courage
Like I’ve never seen before
She’s something kind of wonderful
She’s a hero, that’s for sure.

    I think I know this "sad girl" all to well. I can really relate to your words here. Some days, I feel so sad and hopeless, but, I never let it get to the point of giving up! Poetry helps with that a lot. When I write it allows me to get over things.....Nice job on this one! Thank you for commenting, once again. I am glad I can touch at least one heart with my poems!

    Thank you for your comments Kelly, I really appreciate them. Kelly I had that sadness [ what John Sherman calls the fear of life} I helped cure it by writing, But I also took a trip to John and Carla Shermans site 'www.justonelook.com' and now after forty years I am totally in love with live. Take a look oin his site, I did, and it is the best thing I ever done.......Peter
