Pain and Gain

She had seen pain and misery, always.

Born motherless… A slap or a kick or harsh words gave her company every waking hour.

He wiped her tears, made her laugh and made her happy… always.

“All this gloom shall pass, one day”, he used to say.

And she believed him.

He sold her, one day.

  3. When I click on ‘post a comment’ the link disappears, I had to choose to ‘open it in a new tab’ before this opened… I am not sure if only I am facing this…

    Very nice 55er. Kind of jolts you, because it is too close to real life.
