A tiger devoured my baby !!

A tiger devoured my baby !!

A Poem by Bewitching Sensation
"

My son was taken in by a bad crowd.. And for 5 years was on drugs.. This is about a mothers love

"


Pressure to impress & blend,
Just because he wanted friends.
Who lured him away?
A tiger in a shroud !

Teasing, taunting, Luring,
Into the jungle he went,
Of life's tumultuous way.
This she never ever dreamt

Path of sorrow and woe,
Seduction, deceit,morose.
She  waited for the call,
One a mother dreads most.

Collapsed with despair & grief.
Her baby desolate and so alone.
Gazing through the steel bars,
At the life he had known.

Driven by the tigers hold,
So confused standing alone.
Far from those he loves,
And comfort of his home.

But the tiger underestimates
A mothers love, so strong !!
Who never judges, never gives in.
She studies the tiger, learns his song.

Stealthy the hunt begins.
She flys on the wings of love,
Providing the key to freedom.
Moving in with the spirit of a dove.

Her love opens the door,
Allowing her son to be a man.
Restoring Hope and peace,
To escape the tigers den.

Yes the path will be twisted,
Many hardships ahead.
But your family is there,
Tears of joy now shed.

Shuck off your demons.
Look deep inside your heart.
Restore your pride, and run.
Your stronger now then the start.

Awesome epic work.
This is an inspirational,motivational and courageous write.
Each stanza is a flower of a amazing floral wreath.
This stanza is my most favorite:

"Her love opens the door,
Allowing her son to be a man.
Restoring Hope and peace,
To escape the tigers den."

thankyou babe x
I like the use of the lion. It is hard for us parent. Some lessons must be learn from testing life and mistake. A wise parent keep the door wide open and try to stay positive. Hard to do. I enjoyed your story. I'm glad for the goad ending. Thank you for sharing the excellent poem.

Not a mother, but been there... my eldest daughter. Evokes every emotion you'll ever know. Definitely the lowest point in my life, but we survived too.

Good emotion and congrats!
