To love is to be vulnerable; Triumph is born out of struggle; We notice shadows most when they stand alone in the midst of overwhelming light.

cause mama didn't want her them to feel the pain
but they still - they still felt the pain.
cause daddy left when he didn't suppose too
and mama cried in her bed, feeling alone
as the warmth slowly left this home;
God, please bless this broken home.


i know, i know that daddy seemed like a thief
because he stole of what was left of a family,
but he's still part of the family what is left of this family.
he was just a blinded thief,
so blinded that he didn't see the blurred tears
that shattered and cut us in so many places.


daddy, i don't think you know that mama
is crying from pain and fear and exhaustion;
i don't think you know that mama's scared
and trying to earn money so we can survive;
i don't think you know what we've been through through
or what we're going through cause while mama's here,
you're on the other side of the world.

The author's comments:

A poem rather similar to my other poem, 'a crying angel.' Being honest, I had to watch my mother cry again and it hurts so bad. 


I hate seeing my mum in pain. I hate feeling like I can't do anything to help her. I hate that my mum is sick.


I don't know if this is a ballad, but I just picked ballad because it felt right. This is just a song and poem, inspired by Molly Kate Kestner's song, 'His Daughter' and a Youtube song called, 'Another Empty Bottle' by Katy Mcallister and my past.


Thank you for taking the time to read this, if you read this.
