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.
