Mother

1 Comment

Mother you are the one that is supposed
to pick me up when I fall but instead
you are the one that knocks me down.

Mother you are the one that is supposed
to protect me from harm but instead
you put me in harm’s way.

Mother you are the one that is supposed
to love me but instead you said you
hate me and wished I was dead.
