 Pages Of A Woman's Soul


sad man Pictures, Images and Photos

Sick at heart…

How else can a mother feel
when she has to turn out her child?
When she sees that without tough love
he will never become a man…

stomach filling my throat
with the acid of regret.

A silly thing begins
a world of hurt and angry words…
accusations flying everwhere,

“I thought mothers were supposed
to love their sons unconditionally,
but I guess not!”

An arrow slices through
the tender flesh
of my heart.

Yet my mind knows
nothing else but
total independence
will make him

his own potential.

And so I bleed
emotion as
I see him

drive away.

I wonder then…

Where are my tears?
Were my expectations too high?
Will he hate me forever?

Loving him,
I let go.
