H is for Hope #AtoZChallenge @AprilA2Z
My theme for this year’s Blogging from A to Z April Challenge is Feelings and Emotions from A to Z in 55 Words. Today, H is for Hope
The mirror shows a vaguely familiar reflection.
The visible and the invisible scars stare back at her.
A lone tear escapes from somewhere.
The giggles of her children breaks her reverie
Seeing him dote on the children makes her forget the ugliness, once again.
Some day her love would tame the monster inside him, too.

So tragic and touching. And to think women stay on in such relationships. Sigh…

Absolutely touching story. Sometimes, for the children, we give up our own hopes and hope for the best for them. Really good one Shilpa.

Oooh ! Intense. How can a father ill-treat the mother of his kids ? 🙁

So tragic and women think their unconditional love can change abusive men. 🙁

Domestic violence and marital rape is an issue that needs to be addressed first in our country. It is sad that there are so many women out there who go through this.

So sad…I wonder why she had to compromise her present in the hope of an elusive future, even if for her children!

Sometimes we women spend our entire lives waiting for one person to change, in hope, in false hope perhaps…Beautifully written

Not a lot of hope in her case. But in general hope is a sweet and uplifting word.

Its moving story!!
Hope is the only ingredient that keeps the life moving despite all the odds.

Very touching! Good one Shilpa!!

That was tragic and intense. Nicely done, Shilpa. 🙂

Aww! This one was so touching. Women keep believing they can change men but it never happens.

Caught In A Dilemma!! Sad AndTouching Story. I Wonder How Many Women Still LiVe In This Hope.

Hoping against hope, a mother can sacrifice everything for her children. She can carry false hope, and dream what can never be true!

This is a common belief about women, that men will change, including abusive men. However, that is not the case at all! If only! 😉 <3

most women don’t react to domestic violence and do not try to get themselves out of the mess with the hope that their men will change..the pathos beautifully brought out!

Sad and more commonly happening in homes than we think. I have been following your A-Z challenge so far. Must say that you have a subtle way to talk about important aspects of life. There is always a deeper essence to the story.
For this story, Bravo!

False hope! She should move on.
April 12, 2015 4:28 pm|
This is sad…even though she is hopeful, it’s to no avail. Women think they can change abusive men; they can’t.

Very sad.It touches the heart.
