THE BINDER

Her child was in need So she gave him all she had It was not enough.... He would have to borrow from DAD A lecture of failure Seemed but a little to endure For having the need met And living quarters ensured Her gift gift lie dormant Eating at his soul Her sacrificial living Fell short of his goal It costs him nothing To pay the bill on credit He requires repayment And is happy to badger until he gets it Her relationship altered forever While nothing is changed with DAD Both continue in the belief Living like this isn't all that bad The binder that carries us to ABBA Is the sacrifice we can't engage What should be reverential gratitude Is transformed into a powerless rage ........................I must be free............. Then choose Be blessed, and go your way The sacrifice remains In every purchase....with, and without faith Written by Trudy Schrader on 01-01-2021
