A young girl shook in terror

A young girl shook in terror
Not knowing when the
Blow would fall.

A young boy shook in terror
Not knowing when they
Would come

A young mother cowered in terror
Not knowing when the
Hateful words and actions
Would come

The girl shook in relief
Knowing now the hugs
Came with love and
Kindness

The young boy shook in relief
Knowing now they came
For his father
Not him

The young mother did not cower
In terror
Knowing she was safe
From haetful words and actions



The Girl



The Boy



The Mother



They were family
