I Haven't Changed MAMA, I Swear

As a mother
She tried to be the best
Though she knows she can’t
Can’t fulfill all the dreams her children
dreamt of too
She always lead them to the rightful path
To the best she can

Feel glorified
Children call her out as “best mom”
They realize the sacrifices she has made for them
Sadly, cases like these
Seem only trapped in the pages when
The kid runs to his mom to complain
If ever he is mocked and beaten by his fellows

But not long after mom feels successful
Seeing a” full grown, professional man
Living an organized life”
She was hurt and criticized for her weaknesses
She starts resting her head in her hands for all she had done for them

But mama
As a child
Would like to remind you
‘Nothing in the world is warm and safe as your embrace’
And though its me, hurting you
It will actually be hurting me million times more
Than the same does to you
