Sacrificial Lamb

Not good enough for you
After all these years
All those empty nights
Crying all those tears

Bearing all the pain
Trying to make a home
While you were out
Spending time alone

Putting up a front
Letting no one know
It was all a game
Just a heart break show

Raising our three kids
Being mom and dad
Being there for them
Giving them all I had

Taking your abuse
Wondering all the time
Why love had to feel
Like some dirty crime

Carrying the blame
Being the sacrificial lamb
Understanding all the hurt
Makes me the person that I am

Strength comes to those
Who bear the greatest pain
I have nothing left to lose
And only good to gain

The sacrificial lamb
That took it all from you
Has now shed a new skin
And starts again, anew

VERY good Deb, i was thinking this was a hard challenge..but you made it look easy... this is a perfect poem.
great job, jm

 Do you live by the book, do you play by the rules
Do you care what is thought by others about you
If this day is all that is promised to you
Do you live for the present, the future the past...

Wonderful Deb, you were the lamb and you fought back valiantly!! Well done!  
If your poem is based on your life, sorry you had to endure that, I was the backbone of the family myself for a number of years..

 There is only one corner of the universe you can be certain of improving, and that's your own self...
