Mamma Dont

Mamma Don't Lie,
I feel your hard years,
I hear your heart sighs.

Mamma Don't Cry,
I see those raw tears,
I know those aw eyes.

Mamma Don't Die,
I share the same fears,
I drink the same cries.

Mamma Don't Try,
I will cover our ears,
I will shower our lies.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

For majority of my years for many days at a time, my mother would cry either for no reason or because she was triggered to do so. Half of the time she cried about how she grew up (which was horrible) and anytime something triggered her past, and a quarter is because of how my father treated her (abused her till I was about 6 or 7) and another quarter because of how my father controlled her (she was seperated from friends, discouraged to get a job or finish her education) . Many times she would preach suicide, but she stopped when my sister decided to actually try it on herself twice when she was 13. I had the weight of that and a bunch of other shit on my shoulders, which is why I said 'I' at the beginning of every line after 'Mamma', but everyone has unique sets of responsibilities, this was just a fraction of mine I felt like sharing. Hope you can relate, as Im sure you can.
