I knew a woman who used to gleam with hope
she married his man and bearforth his child
they lived in a hut and grew vines in her yard
she made him her world unto which her life revolve

But alas! that man wasn’t the man she used to love
his eyes got darker and in peril he became bitter
he abuses her in anger and drank through his frustrations
he became binded with hopelessness which is fueled by regrets.

Everyday you would hear of her cries and pains
and of a hungry child who has not eaten in days
her mind was left in dismal disarray
not knowing of anyone would help her in any way

Until one day she thought of running far
she took her garb and sneak out with her child
she left him on the floor on his drunken state
biting her blood tinge lips as she tried to escape

Now there they are lying cold on the streets
she snuggled her child who was softly sleeping by her side
her baby is pale while she has bruised and cuts on her skin
but nothing pains her more than the plan that’s sinking in.



I knew a woman who used to gleam with hope
she sold off her child to a stranger’s home
she was left heartbroken and pained with regrets
but that’s the only way she knew how her baby would live well.
