Not all lives are easy.

Hard Life

He smoked and he drank

And in that chair he sank

He hollered and he cussed

He always raised a fuss

He grabbed her by the hair

And still she didn't care

He through her against the wall

She bounced like a little rubber ball

She never let the pain show

For another punch he would throw

But once alone, she would cry

Wondering how she would get away with another lie

Everyday her money she would save

Praying she wouldn't first go to her grave

Then on that blessed day

Head held high she walked away

Down the aisle in her white gown

Knowing never again will she be knocked down

She walked with a whisp

Turned and blew him a kiss

She looked at the man by her side

And knew this was the greatest day to be a bride

She was now out from under his thumb

Never again will she have to deal with such scum

She now loves her new life

For she is a great mother and wife

A very nice write. Loved the emotion. Hard to write about abuse, but you did it with flair.
