Revenge of Eve

Silent Sufferer

Life & Relationships

An unbearable sadness

To tame

A story

different…

yet

The same

A life sentence

Imprisoned

to a life of shame

Ridden with guilt

Themselves

They blame

No words can explain

The epic tragedy

A mothers child

Taken in vain


Revenge of Eve

dedicated to: D, Wendy, & L

I work with D’s and Wendy’s daughters and L is D’s best friend. What these three have in common is something I wish to NEVER experience. Each of them have mourned a child and the scenarios are different but the pain, one in the same.

Wendy had six children and lost two boys, separately, to the streets. D survived an abusive relationship, at the cost of her child’s life. And L… oh the pain of mourning her child… An abusive man with a gun, to her head, forced her to walk away only later to say the daughter they shared were dead. Doing all she knew how she continued scrapping by only to be contacted by her daughter 30+ years later.

These wounded women live life with a piece(s) of themselves missing. The pain of such loss I cannot comprehend. These women’s stories have found me recently and all I can hope is that it isn’t to prepare me for the same thing.

If you or someone you know is in an abusive relationship, provide them access to resources that will help to get them out. Do not wait until this is their story.


Domestic violence can happen to anyone regardless of race, age, sexual orientation, religion or gender. If you or someone you know is in an abusive relationship, or if you have questions about abuse, we can help.

    1. I can’t even begin to describe the emotional roller coaster I was taken on hearing L’s story. And the saddest part is D & L suffered silently because they feel as though they failed as a mother. I cannot fathom the weight of such pain.
