It’s a hard life
She thought…
Her children
Growing older
Mostly out of
Her sight

If God has a plan
For each of us
What’s the point
Of what He planned
For her life?
Pain from the start

Parents who didn’t
Protect her from abuse
Left her abandoned
They ran wild…
Hardly would know
They cared at all

Is it any wonder
To see her fail
When children
Came into her life?
What did anyone expect?
Her life long ago wrecked

We say He has a plan?
Maybe some could believe
But the evidence so far
Comes far short…
Maybe…despite wishes
To the contrary…it’s all
A random sick joke

    Thank you, Suzanne. That was my intent. This is about someone close to me…a sad story, continuing.
