i imagine this must have been a hard write so well done!
I cant imagine what it would be like to be in that situation so i suppose im very lucky. Just remember you are strong and there are those around you that care for you. Excellent poem.
Awe this is a sad one Gem, but i keep feeling that you have some hope left still? ive learned that no matter how bad things are they cant stay that way forever :) one day you'll get that banquet for mothers day *wink wink* oh and the poem? 99/5 as always :P
