Mothers

Where were you when I needed the comfort

Of a protective caregiver? You abandoned

Me before you ever had me.

Where were you when I had troubles

In school or in life? You never even cared

About depression, anxiety, woes.

You did teach me one grain of advice:

A mere wisp of comfort—

I lay upon the ground and dream about my 

Family, friends of future, life for goodness sake.

You taught me how to never raise a child.

You taught me how to hate a mother

Who never really was one at all.

The End
