Poems

One more run

All I wanted was to set a good example

All I wanted was to be a good wife

All I wanted was to be a good mother to be

Where did I go wrong?

Did I make too many late runs?

I said last time was the last time

One more deal and all of this would be over

Yet, here I am

I feel the metal of these handcuffs cutting my circulation

My children crying in the corner

Asking where mommy is going?

Where did I go wrong?

What if I had finished school?

Would that have made a difference for me?

Things were supposed to be different for me

All I wanted was to be a good mother

To be a better person for them and me

Yet, the stain on the wall I just made it worse

 No amount of scrubbing is going make it clean

Too much damage has been done

My poor children are losing me

For one more last run

That’s what I said; one more last run

I guess at least that was true
