You Chose - Poem by Jeanette Matthews

Is I'm the reason you are not having fun
Is I'm the reason that your job and life bum
Tell stepdaddy am I'm the reason why your pay is low
Is I'm the reason momma don't treat you the way she did years before
Is it because I'm here yall living so poor
Because I will get my baggs and hit the door
You said I'm why we don't have a family
And only your children is the one's that fully agree
I can't just let yall have my mother
Becasue she is not like no other
I'll go and take me mother too
Since I'm the reason bad things is happening to you
Are you happy now I'm gone
Well I'm happy, even if I am living alone
I guess I didn't have momma like I thought I did
I guess momma love them more than her own kids
That what I get asking her to choose
That what I get for being momma 's fool

Dedicated 2 Best Friend Jordence Hill
