I Can Endure

I Can Endure

written by: Sue Marie St. Lee


It remembers me from when;
When the brutality of childhood
Taught me my flaws,
“You’re stupid, ugly,

“You will marry a factory worker
and remain unaccomplished.”

I married a factory worker,
I birthed and raised sons,
Four Heroes to father
Future generations.

All these years later,
Last night,
When the darkness spoke into my brain,
I stopped my Spirit from breathing in its words.
I quieted my heart,
In the shelter and silence of my God,
I can endure.
