Inner Turmoil - Poem by Patricia Kelley

It's that inner turmoil that eats your insides, when that relationship starts falling apart.
You have a broken heart.
Here's when the threats come, the fight over the children. Who gets what? Children stand quietly behind building up that inner anger, standing by seeing their parents turn into strangers.
You feel like you're in immediate danger.

It's that inner turmoil when you find out that he had another, while you were left at home watching the children.
Your own children treat you like, they're the stepchildren.

It's that inner turmoil that hits you, when you stand in front of the mirror and don't recognize the person you're staring at. When you become a stranger to yourself, and the judge will decide; if you are still a mother.
You run to the comfort of your father.

It's that inner turmoil when the test that life brings, hits your gut right in the middle, taking you down. This is when you start questioning life, and if, there's really a God.

It's that inner turmoil, when you realize that there must be a God because without Him, and without that inner strength. You would have fallen to pieces.

It's that inner turmoil, when the real you comes out and you see, who you really are.

Then you realize that God is your strength.
