Brave Soldier

To this father
he offered this daughter;
To this man
he offered this woman;
To these children
he offered this mom.

The nights weeping as a child
prepared her for the tumultuous relationship
she would run from
to raise her children alone.

She wore this life on her shoulders
because he knew she could carry the weight.
Some are born with a halo.
But, she was given war paint as she crossed past the gate.

He gave her a world he knew she could handle.

A silent voice with lots to say. I speak with pens to stay away.
