I am SHE!- Who Waits

I waited, waited to be loved, to be needed, to nurture. I had brief encounters -as those who passed by – took refuge in my bosom for just a short while and then once again I was left to my waiting.

Then a war , I awoke to activity , felling of my trees, building of dwellings, laughter and men’s voices ringing true in the clearings they made in my heart. Times of hardship for man , but they rose to the challenges presented to them. I became “home”.

I didn’t change! I was still here to nurture to give a place in my heart. The needs of man changed, money became important , dwellings needed to be bigger and better – the needs of man became “give me” – I gave what I had.

Another war, where man died for me and the thought of me. I was home, freedom- a way of life to be cherished.
Now came the dark time – I am no longer looked upon with a love of home – I am prostituted- a place of ridicule and held in contempt – even by those that I had held in my grasp.

I am beaten and abused , my name has changed on more than one occasion – hardly anyone remembers why – but I do – as I wait once more to be loved and to give nurture to man. Just a few of my children of man are left to care – they are so few- they are outnumbered- I am weary .

I am SHE – a place – a home – LORAIN
