Choices - Poem by Randi Nicole Dement
Life is like a drain,
Sucking you down in vain.
When you think your doing better,
Something always pulls you back to the gutter.
Husbands abuse, lie, and cheat.
Do I deserve to be beat?
Just to be loved is all I want,
But all I ever get is taunt.
My kids deserve so much more,
Someone there for them, and not such a bore.
Screaming and yelling was all he ever did,
Loving and supporting, no-one but his own kid.
So very spoiled, rotten to the core,
(she had to get her way, or bring on the War)
Afterward, truth revealed, she was nothing but a whore.
Even though, I'd try to be true and fair,
Punishing her, I do not dare!
I married three times, it's no charm.
Each and everyone, did nothing but harm.
Jealousy is such a hard thing to lose,
And (since it's Lost) for that, I now must choose.
Being alone, just me and my babies,
Or try loving again, and risk going through Hades.
Is my perfect man somewhere out there?
Someone who won't make life so hard to bare?
(A man that can take my heart, and it repair.)
(added last paragraph and additions 6-12-11)
(I'll find him someday, maybe he's right here in front of me,
When I find him, I give him my hearts damaged key.
I hope he takes good care of it, holds onto it tight
If he can I know, we can be better than alright.)
