The Meanest Mother

Updated on October 18, 2011


I have the meanest mother in the whole world

She made me eat cereal, toast, eggs, and milk for breakfast

And every other kid has candy and snacks


For lunch I must eat vegetables, rice, and meat

As other kids eat hamburger, French fries and coke

And I wish I had some of those


For supper I must eat soup, more vegetable, water, and meat

As other kids eat more sweets

I wish I was they indeed but I'm unlucky


And mother must know where I go

Who I hang out with…she must always know

Their name, their face, and time I must be home


And when I disobey

I get hit

And the spank really stings


And when I get older, teenage year

I must wash my clothe, clean the house…dishes

And buy cheap clothe…the thrift store


Living such difficulty, embarrassment

Wearing old rag clothe to school each day

Oh how I wish I wear clothe from the mall so I won’t be strangers from my friends


She taught me to cook every now and then

I must learn she says

And it get boring each time she explain


Sometime I think at night she sleeps

Thinking of what else mean things to do to me

The slowest and painful killing indeed


Outside our yard there was a march

Protesting and rioting in such great parade

Oh how I wish to attend but mother locked me in


Missed out the fun, darn ain’t exciting

But mother happily smiling

Demanding more house work to be done


Dad reading newspaper and drinking coffee

Oh ain’t he lucky!

Mother always cherish him sweets; donut


And now I’m grown up…wiser I must say

The meanest things my mother did to me

Which now I have done to my kids the same


They called me the meanest mother…

Like how I called mine…

Thank God, I have the meanest mother gene...it’s contagious


If it wouldn’t be from her

Then I wouldn’t be

The wises mother…to help her children grow; successful


I know that someday

They will thank me

Like how I thank my mother for being so mean

      This is an awesome hub Chanroth. I love the message. As kids, we don't see things as clear as they really are. It takes years later to appreciate everything are parents have did for us.

      chanroth ,so very true. At that point of time we sure don't like wat we go through but only appreciate this as adults. this cycle repeats itself when we are parents.

      thanks for a wonderful read.

      charoth: lol, that's so funny my mother hid the goodies in the trunk of her car, it's didn't do much good once we found out we would take turns on watch and sneak in the trunk to get them, wow it's amazing as children how we don't understand until were an adult how life really is, we finally get the picture once we become parents.

      Hi lynn, I too found this funny. I thought back when I was a kid and just start laughing. I regret what I say to my parent back then. I called them evil because the goodies was hidden in the highest shelves that I can't reach. lol...when we grew out of it and wiser, we all come to realization. You are so right about it. Thanks.

      Much love

      hi makusr, you are right, when we're kids we don't understand our parent until we grow up to understand the value of it, I totally agree with you. Thank you.

      Lots of respect

      Hi moonlake, hahaha....I bet that soon he will forgive you. You probably know the dangers but he doesn't because in his mind he just want to have fun. I know that someday he will understand. I was like him too when my parent didn't want me to jump in the lake. It took me about a week, I was hoping for my parent apology but it didn't happen. lol...thanks for a great memories.

      Very interesting and funny, it's amazing how kids see this so true when your a kid but when you grow older you realize this was out of love, gave it up, and all the goodies, thanks for sharing

      chanroth,

      Greetings from MAKUSR. Few days ago I penned my feelings about my mother in 'Salutations Mother'. You don't understand the love behind the reprimands and controls when you are a kid. It's when you grow up you understand the value of it. Thanks for sharing.

      Lots of Love,

      MAKUSR
