AU is pleased to publish this heart rending post from contributor Yvonne Maria Wickes:Why do I stay? Words can’t convey, The pain I feel, It doesn’t seem real. Life’s a blur, too many tears, Can’t leave now, too many fears. Be quiet, shut up; stop the kids from crying, Where have you been? Why are you lying? Where’s my food? Why isn’t it made? Get a job then you’ll get paid! All you seem to do is moan, I have no money for the phone. The car outside is for me, Get round the shops and get my tea! Life is weary; it’s hard to think, I’ll feel better after that drink. Kids are crying, I’m feeling low, It’s definitely time to go. My only way out was to write a letter, Maybe now things will get better. So if you need a hand and feeling low, Not really sure of where to go, A friendly face, a cuppa tea, “My Sisters Place” Is the place to be!
