How?

How Did this Happen

How, she asked, the Creator in the sky

Did this happen?

She worked

She slaved

Day in

Day out

So many years

Mending

Schlepping

Cooking

Guided by a mother’s love

Hoping

That in the end

It would all be worth it;

That she’d grow old

And when her time came

She’d be surrounded by her loving children

And grandchildren.

Now

All those years

Pouring out her love

In everything she did

Appears to have disappeared

All because she couldn’t

Keep living a lie.

How, she asked,

The Creator in the sky

Could this have happened

To someone

Guided by a mother’s love?

How?
