Hi mom may we conversant?
Why do you always look down?
With great hesitate?
Can we be normal and show each other love?
I hate pretending affection,
And longing for attention
Isn’t it supposed to feel natural?
When I smile, and have great hopes
Why does the smile feel plastered?
And when I look into tomorrow
I don’t see a future just more dying people.
Do you hear me? Why do you look so empty?
Your stare is hollow where did your soul go?
All I see is your physical temple
That once held your living soul
What killed you? Why did you give up?
Life gets me down, but I don’t give up.
I may see tomorrow filled with dying people,
But I still plan to live through it
And find the joys of living in today
So I can have the strength
To find the joys of tomorrow
Classy-my heart aches for you. Perhaps your mother is suffering from depression. I admire your perservearance. Al-Anon has taught me I am responsible for my own happiness. You are too. Continue in your effort to not give up and keep trying to be a light in your mother's life. Blessings.
