Mother - Poem by madison caldwell

she should not be afraid
but all the same its there
with monsters under the bed she laid
more 'fraid of her mothers stare

first came the stare and then the swing
the white hot pain exploding
tears like the rain of spring
wet tracks still fleeing

but she stands up strait
ready for another
this time hoping it will sting
expecting nothing less of her mother
