Imperfection From The Daughters Point Of View - Poem by serena dalton

I lay here and ask myself 'Am I really that bad? '
while the tears flood my face, i slowly cry myself to sleep
your words hurt so bad, they cut so deep
i know i'm not the ideal daughter, but i didn't know i needed to be perfected.
Yes, i have flaws, but imperfection is beautiful.

I'm not always strong enough to make it through.
I reach my hand out in need of help, but i get shot down, rejected.
I thought my mother was suppose to pick me up off my feet, instead you knock me back down and laugh at me.

I love you, but why does our relationship feel so incomplete?
I'm sorry we disagree.
All i wanted was my mommy......

    I like your poem because it is your true feelings. I am not a poet but I like to read poetry and sometimes listen to it. Keep on writing and tapping into who you are and what your life is all about. I wish you the best and maybe someday your relationship with your mother will get better and grow to where you believe it should be. God bless you! (Report) Reply
