The single mother

A single mother is standing alone And she will cry when nobody's home Staying up late with thoughts in her head Doing everything she can to keep her children fed A Single mother is the only one there When the kids are afraid, or are feeling alone and scared. Holding them tight to keep the monsters at bay Having the right words and knows what to say Teaching boys to be men And girls self respect When deep down inside She's an emotional wreck

This is a plight I truly feel for and can't imagine how difficult the difficulties are. It is a 'boat' full, unfortunately, and I think all in said boat would concur with your expressive poem. Blessings and light ... (I hope writing helps as therapy) ... CayCay (yes, I assumed this write is your reality)
