Down, not beaten

July 13, 2017

For Loz.

Her tarnished pride was fading
But she couldn’t let it go
She holds herself together
Not wanting pain to show
A fall from grace so sudden
The future seemed so bleak
She’d thought her life secure
At Centrelink no one speaks

Noone blames the husband
Of her he’d just outgrown
His job was just so stressful 
Yeah the fault was all her own

Their time was never easy
looking back she might have known
Her dreams now long forgotten
Career abandoned and disowned
How the fuck could he have done this?
If not to her then the kids?
She had no words to tell them
On the street soon they might live.

No we shouldn’t blame the husband
This never was her plan
His life was so successful
Hers wasted on this man

Shame still burned across her face
Betrayal, pain and anger
She’d find a way to feed her kids
Pleads her case now to a stanger
Your husband has to help you!
Don’t you think I fucking know?
All dirty tricks and falsehoods
Now her life’s the one on show

Noone blames the husband
Of her he’d just outgrown
His job was just so stressful
Yeah the fault was all her own

A mother can’t move on
Just leave her kids behind
She’s down now but not beaten
Through this a path she’ll find
The lady at the counter
Gives a reassuring smile
Don’t worry love, you’ll beat him
What he’s done to you is vile

No we shouldn’t blame the husband
This never was her plan
His life was so successful
Hers wasted on this man

Her life was turned around soon
Not by another man
She realised she had always been
The leader of her clan
It wasn’t easy, that’s for sure
As usual she muddled through
When your partner breaks your home apart
That’s all that you can do.

Yes we can blame the husband
He doesn’t know what she has done
To love him and support him
Because of her how far he’s come

She juggled sixteen different jobs
Two or three at the same time
For her kids she pushed on through
Did what she could to make a dime
Never let them see her struggle
Or the pain she held inside
And despite all this those children
Had the best mum you could find

She doesn’t blame her ex husband
For being such a cad
His life’s now shit but she’s on top
And her son is now a dad
