Slowly Sinking - Poem by Krista Thomas

Drowning in my tears and slowly fading away,
Trying to stay away from you, never to stay,
You tried to hold me down, slowly sinking,
Trying to get away, trying to keep on thinking,
Wanting to meet you but you hated me,
Oh 'mom' you never wanted to us to be,
How can you hate your own daughter,
It was hard for me and yet I fought her,
Wow, I cant believe all of the pain,
Thinking deeply, yet its your gain,
Cant believe that you would leave like this,
When I was 6 months, didnt even get a kiss,
What kind of mother could possibly do that,
I guess mine would, wow what a sinners wrath.

    what kind of a mother could possibly do that? very painful, but you're ok. a mother can be a mere accident, nothing more than an incubator. dreadful, though. a mother is for love and loving. a moving poem, what kind of mother could possibly do that? you have yourself and you'll be your own self-mother (Report) Reply
