When I was a girl
I told my friends
My mom is so mean
I wish she would stop telling me
When the pain ended and the last tears fell,
And I got out of my living and bitter hell,
I found a strength as strong as steel,
This strength I found is surely real.
Honey bear jar lid taken off
Poured carefully over the carpet
With pink and white animal cookies
Floating in it
I’m still here somewhere
Between the dishes and laundry
Breakfast, lunch and dinner
I’m still here.
Losing someone so special to you
Someone you loved so dearly
To lose that person
Is the greatest loss ever.
We will not lose hope
One day all will have freedom
All will live in peace
What can I tell you
About the life I’ve lived
Will I impress you
With all the things I did?
I will truly accept myself today
No more worrying about what you say
I will do what I really want to do
No longer will I be controlled by you.
A black cat crossed my path
On a night of a full moon
He was carrying a pack on his back
And dancing around like a loon.
Their life is getting worse
She just can’t stop drinking today,
But she loves her kids
And thinks perhaps rehabs the way.
