Drug Lord's and Pimps

Dear Monsters of the night~

Do you honestly think
a mother can't see through
your fake grin and cracked teeth?

You feed upon my child
until her soul is completely

I hear her skeleton
whisper to me at night,
Momma, help me;
help...

I sent my army,
gathered prayers
along the way
mixed with candles;

So people can see
your demonic hearts
glowing in the night.

You will not take my child!

I'll scrape the pavement
search every alleyway;
and knock on doors of
crack houses...

Until all of you choke on the pain
you have caused...

That's what a Momma does.

***********

Dear Bird Baby,
Momma loves you to the Moon and back.

    Andrea...as a mother you will NEVER give up on your child no matter how overwhelming the situation. This was such a heartbreaking poem but also a reality check for a lot of people. I can only hope your little bird will finally find wings and fly back into your arms...
