MotherMurder

“Incredulously”

Who could have known?
Who could have guessed?
Who could ever think
that the most important soul
to us ALL
would be taken in violent homicide in
five days.

Who could believe, if someone said it was coming,
that the one
who we all assume will be there for us
til our own end
will , instead, be stolen?

Wouldn’t we all pooh-pooh it if we
thought that Gramma would never again
bake her famous cookies
for your kids..
spoil them rotten with her devoted love of them?

Who could imagine she would
never again gladly provide an ear,
a non-judgemental ear for you
in the middle of the night
when you just ..needed her?

I couldn’t..

But it happened..

      Thank you, Donna…There are times I watch tragedy unfold on then news..well, more, I USED to see in the news before it became too much for, I knew–I KNEW that the horror was just beginning for the souls this would affect directly–and indirectly for the initial days, weeks, months, years after..
      Homicide and violence has a way of hanging on to families–to those left behind after the aftermath….Murder has a way of popping up in the lives of survivors –out of the blue..or in-your-face with trials, hearings, the media..It is, sadly, a part of everyday life now and triggers are EVERYWHERE..
      Until violence resulting in death visits you in your own nest–it is unexplainable how very profoundly it changes your life and you as an individual..forever..
      My mother was murdered the same day as the Jonestown massacre..OVER 900 SOULS WERE MRUDERD THAT DAY–MANY OF THEM I FABTS AND TODDLERS..CAN YOU IMAGINEEEEEEEEEEE THE HORROR VISITED IN EVERY HOME OF EVERY FAMILY THE SAME TIME SOMWONE WAS KNOCKING ON our DOORS..
      May God bless all involved in that one simple act that lasts but a heartbeat–and forever and ever within the survivors..
