Mommy, Mommy, Why Can'T You Love Me?

When I was a little girl…

I cried as you beat me

Why doesn't she love me?

When I was a little girl…

I pleaded locked alone in the dark

Why doesn't she love me?

When I was a little girl…

And you were out with yet another new man

I sobbed

Why doesn't she love me?

When I was a little girl…

And needed you so desperately

I asked God

Why doesn't she love me?

When as a teen I turned to drugs for solace…

I screamed at you

Why don't you love me?

When as a teen I turned to sex for affection…

I demanded to know

Why don't you love me?

When as a teen my emptiness turned to suicidal rage…

I hurt you, myself, God and anybody near

Yearning for an explanation

Why doesn't she love me?

As an adult…

I struggle daily to battle the demons you left me with

Why doesn't she love me?

As an adult…

I fight the anguished pain to overcome the past torments

Why doesn't she love me?

Now as a mother myself…

I look at my innocent babe and know

I am capable of great love

I am worthy of love

Love is precious

Love protects

I deserve to be loved

Mother what was wrong with you?

You could not see the love and worship your child had for you

the love you abused and threw away, the child you broke

The woman she grew into is stronger than you

Herchild will never wonder...

Why doesn't she love me?
