A Mother sits in a Courtroom


A mother sits in a courtroom
She looks around at all the people
She wonders why they are there
Are they there for a crime of their own?
Or there for the crime of another?

A mother sits in a courtroom,
Remembering when her children were small,
How she struggled to raise them all alone,
She wonders where she went wrong.

A mother sits in a courtroom,
She doesn't understand
How her son could put her here,
A son she loves so much,
Would lie, so she will pay for his crimes.

A mother sits in a courtroom,
She is all alone and scared,
Wishing her son would be there,
To make things right.

A mother sits in a courtroom,
She no longer cares to fight,
She realizes her son,
Will never do whats right,

A mother sits in a courtroom,
With tears falling from her eyes,
She gave her children everything she could,
Now she will give,
The only thing she has left,
HER FREEDOM
