Lord Knows

Lord Knows-

Lord knows, 10 years old
A story;  with my daddy here
would never be told.

So it goes; momma left home,
A strong man to watch over me.
So it shows,
We were alone,
But she barely even knew the man.

My eyes kept tabs,
On what I would hear,
On my when
and my where and my fear,
To my shame.
I Never would have guessed,
My last name would be something to share

The door and lock kept the time
As only “this one was the last one”
Could ease my mind.

After six years
It would appear 
Nothings ever gonna be again
Take care,
Hide yourself away
Change it all
From the sight of this man.

Get to know
Who you were
Who you are
Who you could really be

Till that day
Open the door 
To find the devil
Staring back at me.

And lord knows 19 years old
Back feelin like I’m 10
That man, in my house.
How did I let this happen again?

That night, just too much
And I knew it was too late to run.
The gin said,
I know what to do,
Go on ahead girl,
Hand me that gun.

Hold you breath
For the ones you love
That can stay
The grip of your hand

And for the right ones
To show you the way
That prove all aren’t like
That man.

Momma finds out
What its about
All she can do is cry.
No fault, 
But Momma Lord knows,
did you stop to wonder why?

Did you ever stop and wonder why?

*epilogue - First, I'd like to thank everyone for all of the support for what I've been dealing with. It's been amazing having you all be there for me THANK YOU SO MUCH.  I got asked if I'd planned to write about it... I hadn't but truth me told writing has always been my therapy and while the toughest part of the ordeal is over....there's still more work that needs done between my ears.  So to that end I decided to do a little something. Again thank you for your support.*

Thank you for sharing [HQ]. It's a stirring poem that gently expressed what you endured. You shared it even though you were afraid to so I hope that helps you. There are people here to support you. I pray that just knowing that continues to help. When writers like you share your experiences in positive purging ways, it benefits us all.

The website isn't like this forum, but you'll be surprised at what you might find.  Just type in the search engine on the website, and you might find content of this nature?

I'd have to disagree with you about the beauty of your postings! Anytime someone has the courage to share the past and present of what's inside is beautiful! I hope you stay with us forever.
