A Poor Mother's Heart - A poem, A plea for hope
A mother facing foreclosure of her home confesses her fears in a rhyme....
It seems I've spent most of my life just treading water.
My teenage years I thought were madness, but grownup life is harder.
Though I know that I can swim these waters I am in
The tide this time is stronger than I have ever been.
Becoming a wife and mother of two are my great accomplishments thus far
Yet now as trials come my way, there is more of my heart to harbor
It is now not about how I will survive this world,
but how I will maintain the livelihood of this little boy and girl.
These other lives depend on me and the pressure can be tough
I know I need not be perfect, but because I'm not, it's rough
Can they see the pain in my eyes? Do they feel my fears?
All I can do is to advert their gazes when my eyes are filled with tears.
I will not let them see me, weak and full of disrepair
I cannot let them see me give in to the fear that is there
All I want to do is get it right the first go round. avoiding all the strife
Instead of living in the shoulda, woulda, coulda - (but didn't) - kind of life
Of course all the answers are clear as crystal in retrospect
it's the moving forward from here that I just cannot seem to get
Time is up and I am scared. Terrified of a future I cannot see
I pray for strength to accept that fate - what is meant to be
I pray for answers. I pray for hope. I pray God has one last trick up His sleeve
I pray for his forgiveness and I pray He continues to watch over me

Last year my family was scammed by a company called Residential Relief Foundation who promised to help us modify our mortgage terms in hopes of getting things back on track. We had hope that things would get back on track and they seemed to. However, I sent RRF money instead of my lender and after a few months of no contact I found out that this company had been shut down by the Federal Trade Commission. Please be aware.
