Home of the Unsung Hero

Living for a God-filled home,
though the days are dull, un-new;
For her working husband,
the one she’s committed to;
For her crying babies
and their rocking’s late at night;
For her quarreling little ones
and their needs with every fight;
For her disagreeing teens,
one flirting with rebellion,
Who broke the rules, was caught on sight,
now court-charged as a felon.

She fights these battles on the front
with her Lord in aching prayer,
Then cooks and cleans her little home
with duty's cheerful, loving care.
With unexpected visitors
she allows her time to spare,
And thinks not twice to help
church, friend or county fair.
She’ll not have her independence,
or be known through out the land,
Because her soul delight is
serving Home the best she can.

I do not think I understand
this commitment that she holds,
And yet I pray that some day
He might form me for those molds.
Because I’m slowly seeing
how noble is this call,
To be a lady of the Lord,
despite curses from the Fall.
And now I know the Unsung Hero
is the heart of no one other,
Than the kind, strong, loving will
of a devoted Mother.

A sweet tribute to a Godly mom. A few small problems but overall a very nice poem. Keep writing!

Unfortunately, too many moms are unsung heroes in their homes. Your poem can remind us to let them know how much we appreciate their work, sacrifice, and, most importantly, their love! Thank you for sharing this!

This is a great and inspiring
poem, and shows devotion and
love for the Lord also.
thanks for reviewing my
poem Birth Of Life, and the
encouragement you gave me.
God Bless: quickening.
