My mom is an addict. She continues to let me down. This is just a poem that reflects that.

I'm praying that they put you away.

I know things are better that way.

You can't put needles into your arm.

And continue to cause yourself harm.

You can't grab that pipe.

And smoke away your life.

It doesn't matter how long you were clean.

The point is that you put drugs before me.

The only time you let me down is when you're high.

I waited in that parking lot for 5 hours and cried.

You should have just told me to turn around.

That is the last time you will ever let me down.

You are my mom and I love you.

I just don't understand the things you do.

It has been this way for years.

I'm sick of shedding my tears.

I don't want to give up on you.

But how many times can I forgive before I'm through?

little girls are supposed to have a mom.

But not having one has made me strong.

You gave me 3 little sisters and a brother.

It's too bad that to them, you aren't even their mother.

I'm sorry, but the truth hurts.

Maybe you should try putting your kids first.
