One girl's battle cry as she fights her abusive ex-husband for custody of their children despite his threats to take them.

You think that you can keep me down.

You can't.

You think that I am afraid.

You're right.

You think that I will stop fighting.

You're wrong.

I will never stop being a good Mom.

I will never stop being their protector.

Get used to a ghostgirl.

A ghostgirl who will follow you until they are all grown.

All grown and safe.

A girl who has her voice and is not seafoam.

Is not crushed by your threats.

And will succeed no matter what.

So you might as well do the right thing.

Because this girl has found her cause,

and it is a good and noble one,

one that nature herself supports and sustains,

as does God and those not blinded by greed,

the heaven-sent, God-given right to protect one's young.

This Mama bear has claws and will not rest until her cubs are safe.

A powerful and assertive and expressive write that stands as a testimonial to a mother's (your) love for your children. Thank you for sharing, Marcia. Love and best wishes to you,

It is good that you got out of that abusive relationship once it extended its ugly tentacles around your children. You shall make a good voice towards abuse so others may gather that strength. Good write.
Reviewed by Laura Fall 11/3/2010
Very good write my dear friend and sad to say, Yes they do threat and become very anger when you stand strong instead of weak .Since that is what they want power to hold and control you. I have been there took 14 years to finally walk away .You can do this as a mother will fight the DEVIL himself for her BABY'S!However, a tough road you may face but worth it in the end as good does overcome evil.Plus friend be safe always!
