Day of Deliverance (Written April 25)

Day of Deliverance


Hearing his mother’s relentless talk

And longing for it to stop,

He knows he must leave


This family and this house,

Though it will grieve

Him to do so. He does not dare


Move from the table, his thoughts

Run so wild. In truth, they scare

Him. But never again to endure


His mother’s tantrums, and never

Again to suffer the sure

Absence of his father, is a dream


He will not let go,

Though they seize

Him and tie him tight


To the bed. He will need

All his courage to win this fight.

His life hangs in the balance.
