A Gift of Strength.

Updated on April 18, 2011

A gift of Power and Strength.

Lower your expectation,

however, keep your options.

The silence became so intense,

her mind, body and soul

became so numb and cold,

her worries and pain subside.

Trapped in their booster seats,

fearlessly they watch in horror

shouting "Momma,

what is wrong?

what is the matter?

as she plunge into the Hudson River,

the dirty murky water

silencing her little lambs

She surrender to the dark Angel

However, the White Angel gentle reach down

and shelter the young ones under his wings,

Crowning the eldest siblings

with a gift of power and strength

a gift to survived,

as he swam a shore to safety.

Trouble on the horizons,

as she plunge into the Hudson

Loves fails, love hurts,

Grief is the price we paid for love

her expectation and demands

was more than she could bear?

fissures into years of frustration,

Did Anger and disappointments pile into a mountain?

Trouble on the horizons,

she surrender, love fail

her inadequacies and deficiencies

sponge up the Hudson River,

she should have lower her expectation,

in addition, kept her options open.

Who is to blame?

      Yes, it is ashame she had to go that way! As difficult as things can get, the excuse is a lie. And she was tricked by the father of lie. Great Hub!!

      PurvisBobbi44, thank you for saying such nice words about my writing,Sometimes, when people trouble seem to much or too much to bear, there always forget that there is a God. For the Lord searches all hearts and understand all the intent of the thoughts I Chronicls 28:9

      You are have such wonderful skill and insight to be able to write about such a terrible act. How a mother could do this is beyond me. It breaks my heart to know that such troubled people need help, and do not receive it or maybe not want it. But when a parent hurts a child that has to be the greatest sin of all.

      Thanks for sharing with us.

      Have a great week,

      Where else to find the most powerful writing, but from our dearest, Ms.'lovely (sorry, but you're not "dark" to me).

      I love how you put this in proper context for this incredibly lost, tragic soul.

      And we are to blame - all of us, and I'll not stand for it!!! That's not to say any one of us, but collectively so.

      This is so incredibly important as so many demand we that we do less for one another, and this is the root of the problem, the intolerable voices of descent when it comes to caring for one another, and much to their missed point, it is NOT about money...

      Much love, my good friend. We have a lot of work ahead of us, but your at the head of our response - I love you for that!!!
