Through Her Eyes

I'm going to tell you a story about a very strong woman
She took lies and abuse from her violent, drunk husband

He controlled her every emotion and made her very wary

In fact this is the most felt poem for me due to its contents that hurts the sentiments of a responsible son and mom who is helpless in the circumstances and beyond control. Such things are happening throughout the world
wow lauren your amazing to put down what you and your mum went through into words is absolutley amazing.another great poem you have alot of talent.
Lauren, It's rare for me to give a '10' to anyone... BUT can I give a '14' to you and your Mum? I had occasion earlier to remember Ray Charles, but it seems that that old stand-by 'Hit The Road, Jack '... would not have worked for you! May I suggest a little Neil Diamond might be nice! (Brother Love's.... show!) He says - - - to 'Pack up the babies and grab the old ladies, and Everyone goes! '
I think you are very brave, just like your mum, who's my best friend. I think you are all starting a new and better life, which i think you all really deserve after all youve been through. You will get there....
This poem certainly brought tears to my eyes, it must have been very hard for you to put feelings into words. I should know Lauren, because im your mum. Im so sorry you had to go through so much trauma in your life, your very brave too and I really hope this is a new begining for all of us. You make the pain im suffering so much easier, you really do make sense of what lifes all about.
that was lovely lauren wrote by a girl who loves her mum
