    she'd beat her daughter
    but even until this day
    she has more bruises



    family,
    this was inspired by a real life situation. Regardless her being found guilty, no matter the DHR files with her daughter with black eyes, and skin whipped from her flesh etc..., she remains completely in denial while her daughter(my friend) now has a beautiful family, career, and relationship with God no longer awaiting for a confession from her mother for she sees by her behavior that she is reaping what she has sown....
    as my friend's scars are slowly going away.

    *bowing*

    Thank You For Sharing

    such a personal part of your friend's life. So glad that she has a family and loves her. God has certainly given her beauty for her ashes. A beautiful poem. I hope you were not implying that this is your last haiku. I have enjoyed reading them...very much.



    *Praying that the mother will heal from her bruises*

    a sad, painful story told in this Haiku...

    I am so glad she has the strength to live her life in spite of the pain and suffering her "mother" has put her through...

    FOR THE SHAMELESS

    Ain't it a shame, when those to blame share your name and still
    they feel no shame. Shameless does not mean blameless.
    As a CASA, I deal with these kind of cases on a regular and often
    the cycle continues, Thank God , your friend though bruised.
    Has not become an abuser as so often times is the case.
    Blessing on you and your friend. And may God grant her Peace!
