A simple poem that I wrote whilst in the car about family issues and the rules of the blame game. It expresses how I'm feeling and helps me express my emotions.
She put upon me the blame
For the pain that she bestowed
She asked why I had dimmed her light
That had so truly shown
I told her that other's pain could hurt their sorry souls
She told me that no other's pain
Crushed just like her own.
Not once was the sudden blight of down
Ever a fault of her own
Mine was it all, and all of it was mine
I was the reason behind her frown.
So Mother do I love you and by me this pain is not caused
If I could I would, this time would be paused
And we would forever live in the stillness of the pain
Where me and you, Mother, could shine once again.
