A Daughter's Wish


I wish I had a mother,
That would love me the way she should.
I wish I had a mother,
To accept me for who I am.
I wish I had a mother,
Who wouldn’t belittle me the way she does.
I wish I had a mother,
Who would trust me some of the time.
I wish I had a mother,
That would listen to me when I’m in pain.
I wish I had a mother,
Who would trust me just abit.
I wish I had a mother,
Who would help me when I asked.
I wish I had a mother,
Who didn’t criticize me the way she does.
I wish I had a mother,
Who would understand the pain she’s caused
I wish I had a mother,
Who didn’t have to be right all the time.
I wish I had a mother,
Who would see the good that I’ve done.
I wish I had a mother,
Who wouldn’t make me beg for her love.

    Well this is really very tragic, but I hope your mother and other women like your mother see the other side of the coin & change their attitude.Although life is not a fairy tale yet you seem to have recieved a rotten deal.Nice poem. Very intense & well written (Report) Reply

    I totally understand where you are coming from on this one! It is good to recognize your pain, yet forgiveness is so sweet. If she is begging for your love and has recogized the pain she has caused, then reconsider the hardness of your heart. Its a tough place to be in, but it sounds like you have a great heart and one that is worthy of love. Another great write! (Report) Reply
