Why Should I Call Her 'Mom'? - Poem by BreOnna Schneck
Who should I call 'Mom'?
Who deserves that name?
Does it really matter?
To me, she's my biological parent.
A person who is just an extra in my life.
She never calls me or sees me.
Why should I call her mother?
We have many similarities but not many.
I have her body, skinny and lean.
Her hair is mine, full of body and highlights.
Some even dare say that I have her temper.
She had me when she was sixteen, the age I am now.
A mistake that made her pay.
I will never do the same as she did.
Drugs, sex, things I will never do.
She dropped out of high school to care for me.
Though she left me with my grandparents most of the time.
My biological father left us a few weeks after my birth.
I grew up without a father and almost without a mother.
Why should I call her mother now?
It's too late, the work has been done.
She doesn't deserve to have that name.
I will never call her mother, only her name.
