I hear the words "I've changed" a lot but have you really given it a thought Why do you say that, when it's not true The only one who believes it, is you Why keep coming up with these lies when we all know you just come down from highs You say you want to get away but you do the same thing everyday You have a boyfriend who beats on you but you choose to stay with that low-life shrew Why are you putting yourself through this Why can't everything go back to what I miss Do you even think about how I feel All I want is for you to heal I miss the person you used to be A mother who was always full of glee The mother who used to stay with me when I was sad Now all you do is do everything that's bad I cry tears in front of you, begging you to try But yet, you'd rather go and get high Why do I keep praying you will be the mother I once knew even after everything you have put us through
Another poem I had written about my mother a while back.
I wonder what you see in your eyes as everything inside you slowly dies You push away the ones who care and they won't always be there You don't see how broken you truly are The mother I once thought who was bright as a star Every inch of you has changed in so many ways You're no longer the mother who used to pray Ever since I left you that day your world began to turn grey You stopped trying to find your way so you began to fade day by day You slowly began to fall apart so much that you can't restart You show me that you don't care and that is what hurts me, I swear You no longer have that warm smile that used to stretch on for a mile The mother I once thought who was kind turned into someone who is completely blind You hurt others around you, including me but yet you refuse to let yourself see I will never understand the things you do I only know that you have broken my heart in two
Another poem I had written about my mother a while back
I sit in my room crying at night because you no longer care what's right Me having faith in you, made me a fool You putting me through that was cruel I used to think that things would be fine but this time you crossed the line I no longer have faith in you You went back to him but what's new After everything he has put you through you still go back to something that isn't good for you I hope you're happy with the choice you picked You made me see that you'll always be an addict You have no idea how you make me feel Half the time I don't even know how to deal I don't know how to deal with this aching pain I just wish it would all go down the drain
This is a poem about my mother who chose drugs and a boyfriend that has beat on her over me more than once.
A yellow bird sits on my knee It says "Hello, I am reincarnated mother" She was dead picking the poisoned flower From the shelf of her wayward children We have no way of knowing right from wrong We will go on living as rebellious bird daughters Flitting from heart to heart Seeking shelter in men's broken parts Crying when we cannot start Laughing when we finish money Eating away our sadness Motherless daughters without any stress Trading our mother's feathers for a new dress
