Writer Highlight: Sue Lobo – Desperate Mothers

The world at times, was such a difficult place,
Scratching & clawing at the smile on her face,
Stones were hurled, & by sticks she was beaten,
On the outside world, there nothing to sweeten.

Marred, marked, & merely by living, so scarred,
Nobody had prepared her for a life, so very hard,
People´s smiles, replaced by granite stoned frowns,
At her, fingers pointed, by Popes, idiots & clowns.

Mere whore, walking the streets of downtown dust,
Doing what she does, & sadly, does what she must,
Inside her head she goes, to escape from the others,
To that place, understood only, by desperate mothers.
