Broken Souls

Broken Souls

Somewhere a woman child believe that she was never loved.

Somewhere a mother gran stares through uncomprehending eyes.

Somewhere, somehow two lives have drifted slowly by

with only pain and hurt the common factor.

A woman child that hurts for love that simply walked away

and yet blames other people that the father didn’t stay.

A mother gran who always loved despite no love received

and now feels lost, abandoned and utterly bereaved

Thank you so much Christopher for your encouraging words. Sometimes we don't realise how deep in the well of emotion we are drawing the water up from.... There is a often, more heart than reason that goes into a work,

a sadden truth displayed in fragments, though much was left unsaid, there lingers, that which cripples the soul..
