the silence from the room
spoke louder
than the voice that refused to sleep
and dragged me along with him each night

where did this all start
how did i get here?
my daughter is stronger than i
and my wife is weaker than us both
but i promised these dear faces
to be here til the end,
and my own heart
that could not fully comprehend -
this isn't what i had in mind
this isn't what I had planned

my empty pockets
bring me to the floor
i've never felt so heavy
not even when i had much more

But i am reminded
It is not I who provides
It is not on me which it depends
but the voice that i choose to listen to
and the God who will defend

"We did it," He'll say
and victory will be there waiting for us
like it always had been
since before this ever began

I have a question in my mind as to what the "before this ever began" is. I assume some sort of financial hardship. Watch punctuation ('I' should always be upper case). Thanks for sharing your story.

I like your poem. It reminded me of the old hymn, "Leaning in the everlasting Arms" of Jesus.

Keep writing, you have a good talent.

This is a powerful piece full of emotion. You definitely left your reader something to think about.Check out Jan's Writing Basics on the message boards. She gives great tips for all levels of writers.
