I like this poem, Robert. A lot.
Thanks Judy, your feedback means the world to me.
This poem ought to be published if it is not already. Wonderful insight into her character, and depth of feeling. Way to go, keep them coming
Pretty interesting isn’t it, the truth behind this poem? It saddens me to think of all the women it represents who never allow themselves a break from family, then when they do, use food to satisfy their hungry soul.
