NaPoWriMo Day 20 – What I Meant For You

Welcome to Day 20 of NaPoWriMo. Today is about how I wished I had done things differently for Grace, but then, if I had would she have been here?! I am fully accepting that things are what they are and this is what forms you as a person. Here is my 20th poem in 20 days.


What I Meant For You

This isn’t what I meant for you

But I did the best that I could do

It could have been such devastation

Now I find us in a situation

That’s so much better without he

Who controlled the person I should be

You are generous, kind and true

Something he would never do

Ross is the example you have now

Shows you right, what to and how

You should never ever give in

Be a fighter and you shall win

Together we’ll bring you up right

And be there for you day and night

    I can really empathise with your past, Victoria, although I was fortunate in some ways not to have children involved.

    To show your daughter true courage and strength, to stand up against those who try to control you, the bullies, is being a good mummy.

    It must’ve been so hard for you, you can see that in your poem. But it also brought tears to my eyes at the new, better, loving situation you and she have found.

    Well done you – on so many levels – a truly touching post xx
