As The Door Shut Close - Poem by jennifer marcelino

As the door shut close
The woman behind it cried.
She was 3 months pregnant
Black hair with brown eyes.

Her husband abandoned her in her time of need. Because of what he did she thinks she can’t suceed.3 months later a baby boy with green eyes is born. She does not know what to do her heart is torn.
6 years later the boy is now a young man. And is having girl problems that he does not even understand.

One Friday night the mother hears knocks on the door. It’s her boy coming back from the corner store. As the door shut close the woman behind it cried. Because when she turned around her son had died.
Behind her boy there was a man with a knife. He wasn’t only his dad but the man of her life.
