Will It Ever End?

All those years and all the abuse,

I thought I left behind me.

I moved away at 17,

To start a fresh new life,

Only to be buried in strife.

I put myself through years of abuse,

That’s all I ever knew.

It took three or four decades,

To really start anew.

Until last weekend,

In memory of my mom,

Who lost her life to cancer,

I decided to help the ongoing fight,

Abuse.

To find a cure for this dreadful disease,

I spent the evening and entire night,

At the zoo, to fight the fight,

For someone who scarred me,

Oh, so deeply.

I put myself through torture,

Round the route in my power chair,

And tried to grab a nap or two,

In temperatures so unfair,

To help fight the fight for a disease much too common,

For one of my abusers, my beloved mom.
