A child  once asked  why.

“Why, mommy why

Does  Daddy make you cry”?
The  mother  cradled her baby girl

She hugged and squeezed  her tight  

The two cried together . 
The little  one gently  

Wiped her mama’s  eyes  

The mommy smiled.
“I didn’t  have a choice

There is no way out”.

The child jumped down from her lap.
Taking her mama’s  hand

She guided both into her room

She said;”Kneel mommy”.
She placed her hand in hers  

She followed  with  closed  eyes  

“Jesus  can help you, just ask”.
