Drinking for comfort, f*****g for food

Drinking for comfort, f*****g for food

A Poem by Gee
"

A take on a single mums plight

"
Four different fathers
a monochrome brood
drinking for comfort
and f*****g for food.
Best before blow jobs
use before shags
payment in polythene
half empty bags.
Laying and lying
but only to self
shop soiled, outdated,
left on the shelf

What people do sometimes looking for a place to feel loved and belong- sadness as it’s self destruction but each has a path to walk- pray people learn to love themselves no matter where they come from- very direct and full of passion and truth- great words- make people think🌹

Right to the point!
It was a sad poem to read but it was filled with so many true emotions I can tell.

This piece was hard for me to read but we do what we have to do to survive. It's sad to me that women are put in this position. It should not be this way. A bittersweet write for me but brutally honest. Well done!

Aye, more common than we'd like to believe. Cheers
I'm using discovery and it seems to keep putting me into contact with you like it knows something I don't. As for this and as well with the others your rhyme scheme is tight, the imagery is there, and more often than not I enjoy the hell out of them. So, I have to ask about the with best before part. Do you need with? Is it an instructive label on the bag? Usually like milk it starts best by yada yada or best before such and such date. Ditch the with is my critique my man, feels unnecessary. Otherwise, carry on!

My fave. I'm not sure ppl catch the 'four different fathers, a monochrome brood' part, but it's absolutely perfect. I'm a fan!

Kids are resilient and at the time because you know no different it was classed as normal.
Hard to read, but easy to understand. The luck of birth can govern environment, which ,in turn, can govern behaviour. Those that condemn the loudest, are often the cause of the problem.

A unique twist on a not so uncommon situation for many. My teen years were spent on a housing estate with a bit of a bad rep and I saw this and worse on a daily basis. It wasn't all dark skies though, the one thing I do remember is that everyone looked out for each other and knew everyone else's name...Now I couldn't tell you what most of my neighbours looked like if I had a gun to my head. Changed days, in some ways good, in others nothing changes.

Thing is you grow up thinking it's a normal upbringing when it is everything but.
