A Study in perspective Pt. 1 (Blessings and Cursings)

A Study in perspective Pt. 1
(Blessings and Cursings)

She gets her kids up
Screaming and kicking the whole way
Getting the last one on the bus
She heads home, passing a woman
Pushing her son in a wheelchair

....

She picks him up out of the bed
Her back aching and screaming
After cleaning his colostomy bag
She wheels him to the bus stop
On her way home she passes
The funeral procession

....

She gets herself up
Crying and screaming
Not believing this is real
She cannot express the sorrow she feels
On her way home from the funeral
She passes the fertility clinic
We at least had him a little while, she thinks
Three short wonderful years
She smiles through the tears

....

She wakes up from her dream
She thought she'd heard a baby cry and scream
But they still have no baby
As she heads to the clinic
for one more try
Out of the abortion clinic
A young girl walks by
"At least I'm trying to bring a life into this world"
She angrily mutters aloud
As the young girl slips into the crowd

....

She picks herself up
Screaming and screaming and screaming
The ambulance comes and finally stops the bleeding
Two months later, she gets the "good" news
Pregnancy , her present for rape and abuse
She heads to the clinic
doing only what she knows to do
Brushing past a homeless man on a bench
She angrily thinks to herself
At least I wont be responsible for another bum like you

....

He admires his creation.
Each one perfectly made,
in His eyes.

Smiling, He bends down and
Continues to feed the sparrows
From his seemingly unending sack of seeds
Sitting beside Him on the bench

Wow... for a long hiatus, you've really put a lot of emotion together in this one, Gordy.

:shock: :bow: :thumbsup:

Hi Gordy. Good to see you back. Good poem. Perspective can change everything. :bow:
