 POETICAL ME

Tell Me of These Things



As a child, love but a mothers
Here, siblings six
siphoned sentiment

Straws that never broke her back
and so our story
begins

Infidelity found it's way into her home
but not into
her heart

She was a faithful wife with brood
to care for

A worker more than Queen Bee

Innocence impacted by
struggles her own

Her heart dealing with fending
for family
then herself

This part, inheritance ours
Lessons learned
in humility

Grace that danced
in her being
broken

Being mother

Truth be told the man that was
father brought home
the bacon but
not the love

His place was
elsewhere in
life

Yet his failures were schooled
into this first
born son

Class harder but
understood
learning
quickly

Here the buck stopped
and wages of his sin
would not become
mine

For love had a name
and told me
of such
things

Elvira
