Crippling Moments

I hope that this poem may enlighten you to the crippling that any abused friends may be feeling. It is easy to sit on the sidelines and know what they need and to desperately desire their very best. Sometimes just wanting to shake them, wake them or break them to get through.. Here is a reliving of a moment I experienced every weekday of my life through those years in hell:

Crippling Moments

I remember that time
Riding home in my car
My daily pathway to hell
The place supposedly
My haven, my safe place
Was a dark den for demons to dwell.

Same time every day,
Clock ticked, miles ran by
My heart crying out to the Lord
“My dear God, please hear me
Give us one day of peace”
You know we can’t take any more

As the gap to home lessened,
My heart filled with fear
“If he’s home, please make him go out”
I can’t take the chaos
I can’t take the hurting
I can’t listen any more to his shout”

My babies were suffering
Growing up in this hades
What had they done to deserve it?
Their innocence stolen
Their ears filled with curses
Their poor little eyes to observe it

Demons raged warfare
On the home of my dreams
Every hope, every desire now thrown
Gone was the specter
Of a family named happy
Of a place for my kids to have grown

Yet I was stuck in the fear
Consumed once through that door
Of hiding the kids from this misery
They needed a hero
They needed a father
They needed some form of delivery

Yet frozen I was
Crippled each day by surviving
Each moment a mountain before me
Searching for something
Searching for anything
For an escape from those evils that tore me

There was no way out

Until I was ready…
