A Mother’s Love

I used to want to kill myself
I was the black sheep of my family
My mom never noticed me
But she made sure she gave her other kids attention
After a year of trying
She only acknowledged the bad
She never supported my hoop dreams
Or my Beyonce covers on Youtube
So I quit & started writing
Something she related too
Never let her read my shit
Because she was the topic
It was about the bond we never had
It was about how jealous I was of my sisters
It was about the day i finally locked myself into a bathroom
Wrapped the belt around my neck & pulled
But my strength wasn't strong enough
Something was keeping me here
I tried again....
I told her I tried to kill myself
She told me if I wanted attention I'd have to find it somewhere else
