You tell me I'm selfish But who was left to clean the blood? Who left their children, for their love twas never good enough! We were never good enough for you to live... we were only good enough for you to die.
I took my fill, repeated history as my uncle before me walked between life and death even before I left your womb I was on the edge, between worlds lost in the void
My heart stopped twice And it has tried to stop ever since all it has ever wanted, was to STOP
You were rushed out with every peeping light every flashing siren, every nurse and doctor There is no power in motherhood where death is concerned
Tiny little babe, with no air to breathe no strength to thrive and no life to live was forced yet to live
By "force" I mean you.
You call me selfish 40 intoxicating pills later You call me selfish A bloodied arm later You call me selfish 23years later.
In truth I was forced to live You are selfish You forced me to live a life you couldn't even live for...
You are selfish because you failed to pull the plug
