Tremble

Updated on August 31, 2012


I heard the faint tremble

in your voice the other day

when you whispered secret fears

about what others might say.


Does anyone really know?


How bad things have become

in an unseen distant land

traveled by so many faces

but suffered by only one.


Can anyone hear the screams?


Echoing loudly in her head

as fear blankets every thought

until every good intention

is shadowed by things left unsaid.


Am I doing the right thing?


For the life she holds dear

more than any love before

more than all the dreams imagined

before the unwavering fear.


Can you hear the tremble?


Calling out to those who care

pleading for some invisible power

to bury the self-doubt of motherhood

and save this precious pair.
