Ask and It Shall Be Received!
My strength cometh from the Lord
Where were you when I cried, countless tears
that would choke me if not released
There were times when the thought of Earthly delights lost their appeal
As I struggled to stand firm upon worn out heels
The countless tears I cried as I impeached
Lord give me the strength to do what I ought
As I picked myself up from tiled floors and held my baby thus
I cried, for the countless times I was kicked, beaten, bitten and abused
I often prayed for the strength to maintain my sanity
When fist would pummel me and sometimes missed
and hit the Child that in my Arms enfolded I prayed to you
As I shielded his tiny body from the Massive fist
I walked the streets in a daze
With dark glasses that did little to hide the shame
Sometimes at Nights as darkness drew near
I feared the hour of his approach and I begged
with tears in my eyes for shelter from abuse
Lord let him be kind for just one Night
There is no reason or logical why he strikes me
Breaking bones, and knocking sense
I prepared a feast fit for a King, the house is spotless almost antiseptic
The Walls bear pictures of Family bliss
But in my eyes, the truth exists
As he approaches fear kicks in
Tonight it's either do or die, I die a little
in the interim
As I cry out to you Lord, deliver me from evil
God protects fools and Babies, but I'm neither one.
I look across at my Child quietly sleeping and pray that at least that
promise, he'll keep
I died Tonight the final blow landed and blood trickled from
Porous places, as I close my eyes in final slumber
and no one knew my prayer for deliverance
the struggle to break free
from this abuse
And as I died I clearly heard the prayer I had whispered so many times
Lord Deliver me from evil
My Final thought "Ask and it shall be given!"
