Tonight all that is left of me is a small child
My burdens are larger than any I’ve held before
On my shoulders I carry more than I can handle
With an inexperienced point of view it doesn’t appear as heavy,
But now I’m matched with responsibilities far greater than myself.
Uncertain for my future, I doubt the chances my of survival will be successful
Nothing short of misery is what I’ve received from this mess
I sob in the night as guilt ravages my soul
My peace was stolen from me, captured and never to return.
I want dwell in a sweeter moment, just before the worst robbed me of contentment
Like Dusk before dawn.
Please don’t mind me I’m just grieving
I miss my mother
That Woman I have underestimated, I’ve taken for granted
Only a selfish fool could do such a thing
Still I miss her more than these words can express
Forget the rough past we both know so well
It is our present that matters now
How loud must I, a grown woman, scream before my wishes are heard?
Tell me there’s a lesson that will come from this, a way for me to grow.
Or is my fate to crumble beneath all that weighs me down?
