Behind the Poem: THE PRAYER
The poem, THE PRAYER, (Beauty for Ashes, pg 113) was written on May 1, 2002. This poem is really special to me because it is the first and only one that my mom asked me to write. One of her coworkers had just lost a child, and my mom asked if I could write a poem for her. When I think about it, I think about the pain of losing a child, but also of my mom's confidence in me.
