True To My Mother

Poetry By: ElDig

I learned that eventhough me and my mother don't have the best relationship, she is still my mother and I only get one.

Mother

I knew that you weren't perfect,

I didn't ask you to be,

All I wanted you to do was love me,

The way that I love you,

But instead I sit here feeling blue.

Thinking about how I was your babygirl,

Who did everything for you,

Never talked back to you,

Always tried to speak up for you.

But then you turned your back on me,

Not just because of my sexuality,

But because of the strong woman that I have become.

Its sad to say that you are missing out on the best years of life,

Living threw family members just to know what I am doing,

When in reality all you have to do is call me.

I'm not expecting an I'm sorry or I apologize,

Maybe a I fucked up would be nice.

But you can't seem to put your pride aside,

Not even for your own child,

That's heartbreaking.

In yet as much as you've hurt me,

As many times as you shouted at me,

As many times as you were going to leave us,

I still look at you as my mother,

I still love you because you are my mother.

I just wish that you would feel the same way for me,

Your daughter.
