“Love Lessons Through Generations”

on
What if she had given up?
Decided Life was too tough?
Believed she wasn’t worth much;
Stopped because the road got rough?
What if she had given up?
What if she had low self esteem?
Didn’t know when it was time to leave?
Fell into depression b/c her mate was mean;
Measured her worth by her man’s misguiding?
What if she had low self esteem?
What if she never found love?
Or forsaken her God above;
when times with small children were hard &
the plantation owner pushed her too far?
What if she never found love?
What if I didn’t see the value in her example?
Took a lazy approach to life b/c my life was ample?
Didn’t comprehend that her life was a sample
Of how I shouldn’t let others trample?
What if I didn’t see the value in her example?
What if she never taught our family history?
All the reasons why I shouldn’t accept defeat?
If I didn’t sit with intention at her feet,
Or adhered to the lessons she had to teach me?
What if she never taught our family history?
–L.K.D.–
