A final Goodbye


Do you think,
it's ok to give these commands?
Do you think,
it's acceptable to make,
outrageous demands?
Do you think,
it's ok to make your daughter suffer?
after how you have acted,
you dont deserve to be a mother!
All the sleepless nights,
and the puffy eyes,
why did you,
feel the need to lie?
i thought we were close,
you were my bestfriend!
but this is something,
that not even you can mend!
what about when i want,
your opinion, your advice?
may as well try,
to throw a 7 with one dice.
you destroyed my life,
and i watched it end there,
but you were to selfish,
you just didnt care!
you riped my heart,
into a thousand shreds,
a feeling that makes,
me wish i was dead!
Sometimes i laugh,
and sometimes i cry,
so i guess what im saying mum,
this really is GOODBYE!

    forgiveness mends all broken hearts
    makes a whole of many parts
    love returns to ease the pain
    and a mother's smile returns again (Report) Reply

Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
