character: mother

“woman”

so many words
drip off her fingers
yet her pain
forever lingers
a widow
to lost souls
and false goals
destined perpetually
to walk
her lonely path
in the aftermath
it seems
of so many
broken dreams
but
she’ll walk on
walking for daughters
and sons
walking on
facing what comes
walking her hearts
lonely path
until that day
she breathes her last
