all these things you knew......








never was you fault

was it

all these things you knew

late nights i'd give myself up to be fed

wolves love late night sugar, thick with cornbread and milk so creamy

no-one came looking

baby gurl done made spread with body laid out buffet

wanted to die before eyes knew what dying was surrounded by money makers poor and alone and stupid

all these things you knew

home sweet home calling left some precious things there and God let me live another day

foodstamps and wic didn't keep and sometimes there were needs

you got it there like Maya say

like Gold mines...you can barter it honey

children aint got to be hungry

often times, it don't last long

....it only stain the inside (nothing wine can't get rid of)

all these things you knew and it never moved you

choose cries over cries

close doors and open holes

and all they know...is sleepy eyes

wake to love in cornbread, sugar and milk

filling those precious things so so precious things

I love the way you express the hard places in life, the acts of desperation, evoking visions of familiar foods,wine and wic kind of throwed me of as to what was really going on.

Interesting write.

Suffering sharpens our insight into the nature of life. But every road has a turning as the song says, and we appreciate the good times all the more once we've come through the dark hard times.
Reviewed by Barbara Terry 8/19/2010
I echo what Felix said. But this only touches on the hard times that are behind the words you have written here. I understand hard times, difficult times, times when a person felt like ending it all. I have been through those hard, difficult and end of life times.

You have painted a very sad picture here, but then life is a sad event in any case. Thank you for sharing.

May the Lord Bless you, and those whom you love, and be with you always, and walk by your side. With love in my heart, joy to the world, peace on earth, & ((((((((((MANY WONDERFUL SISTERLY HUGGGGSSSS)))))))))), your little den sister Barbie.

Reviewed by David Hightower 7/28/2010
Mitzi - The sorrow and tragedy of what life can be like is jolting in this poem. Children especially deserve protection so they can have those days of innocence to remember. Whatever God meant life to be, it wasn't for it to be easy. That last line resonates,

filling those precious things so so precious things

- David

Such sadness with memories of doing what had to be done. this is so in your face reality and Mitzi you allow others to see your pain and feel the sadness you feel...
