The coat that was destroyed

remember to those whom think
Fur from the skin of a animal is a sin

to a degree this is true 
in a previous poem .I also have written "tigers living free "
So I let you know I to am guilty ..
go back in time , I ask you.

Think about women before the day 
The day women wore Fur and it was ok .

my mother died early 
to early for me , I was only the young age of 20.

Through the years I remembered her scent 
she left me with memories, in my heart was kept

I wish not to offend 
so I will try and tread light 

When my Mother died
The next day , her personals were taken  
with many it was almost a fight .

I was left with a plate 
until one day received a call 

From the man she was to marry 
before she passed that Fall 

He told me how sad it was for him to see 
his beautiful Brides room was torn up side down
looking for items of value to be found 

He said there was one thing the Vultures forgot 
Her mink coat she loved so much and she wanted me to have 


He flew from  Julian to Monterey , all in one day 
last year I came into my room to pull the coat out 

Mom's coat would comfort and warm my children at night 
someone entered my room to destroy this coat we loved , out of judgment, it was cut . probably a small fortune it will cost , all because of some ones hate , I lost.

I ask we be kind in thinking next time a fur coat
maybe it is the only thing left one has to remember  
maybe it is there to warm the broken soul that longs for 
Motherly Love ~

    it makes me angry, reading about the destruction of the cherished coat. I hope you do get it repaired and wear it proudly. A fine poem this is.....I feel your pain.

    Nice Yvette, is it true? Either way you gave us a look into an unfortunate event, compounded by an even sadder outcome. And all through a clear imagery created by your words. Good job on this poem... MC

    My faithful poet friend , you are so sweet , yes it is true . Sadly , I went to get my mothers mink out , and someone had taken a clean cut to it with scissors' . I will someday try and repair it , there are some whacked people in this World that have entitlement issues . I do not advocate killing little animal or big ones , go back to my Indian heritage ..what can one say ?
