The human female was tougher then he thought,
she battled as if victory is what she sought,
the vampire smiled at her,
as she was erasing the lines of pain away from her face,
He pulled at her, and she fought back,
thwarting blows, and offering a formidable attack.
The vampire couldn’t understand her need to win,
the other humans coward, and ran away,
she battled with grace and was here to stay,
this just didn’t seem right,
but she continued and she put up such a fight.
She managed to move along side a massive trunk of one fallen tree,
raising her weapon upward so the vampire couldn’t see,
he turned to face her and she stood tall,
a crushing blow that made him fall, and sway,
crawl, and pray,
as he tried to sneak away,
the sword came down and ate away at his flesh,
and his screaming instincts were actually dead wrong,
he was in darkness, and he heard the haunting song,
but before the female ended his life,
he saw a child covered in the forest mud secretly hidden away,
and the female watched his pain turn into a twisted disarray
now he understood the reason for his defeat,
she was a mother with a child to protect,
and he was a vampire that had a chance to select,
a weakling, a coward any other,
instead he chose to fight against the power of a mother.

There goes the powere of a mother, there is nothing a mother will not do for her child , and there come brethren Frank with an aching scenario, showing a mothers love.

Great depiction of a mothers love . Life and death will always be the ultimate measure in the eyes of man, but there is so many more steps.

Bless brethren.

Beautifully written. I know I would fight anything and anyone if they came near my son. I don't know if I would be successful, but I would try my hardest.

Up, awesome, and interesting votes Frank. Great poem all the way through pal. I am reading it through and all is mild violence, then all hell breaks loose. Detail is great. The power of a mother knowns no bounds.
