Ask and It Shall Be Received!

Updated on April 22, 2017

Juliet Austin- Retired Counselor, and Nature lover her inspiration comes from nature, sometimes a word, and watching People.

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!"
