no one has carried me

i am a single mother
of 18 year old twin boys
who have autism
attention deficit disorder
and bi-polar disorder

divorced their con-man father
after 8 years of marriage
at age 26
because i had grown up
and was fed up
with his backward
abusive ways
realizing he was a pedophile
who groomed me for three years
as a child
before i caved in
to his disease

after ten years
as a mortician
a lifetime as a poet
and a childhood as a southern baptist
i am convinced there is no god
or if there is
he isn’t concerned with me

but that’s okay

i’ve survived
more than that
i’ve kicked ass

i don’t need him to be
