Mom - Poem by Jake Gassiot

You bitch, moan, and complain
You drive me completely insane
You always tell me what to do
Sometimes I actually hate you

Your love for me branches deep
To a depth I am not comprehend
Treating you badly makes me weep
To this I cannot pretend

But when you yell
It gets so bad
And I get so mad
Do you love me, I can’t tell

Sometimes you don’t have a clue
I DO love you

    Mm. Don't we all have this feeling? I love my mom so much, yet it gets so hard sometimes. My friend noticed that hurting my mom emotionally[as being a terrifying thing] is a theme in my work.

    I definitely love this one. And you know what they say, 'Watch how a guy treats his mom. Because that's how he'll treat you.'
