And Yet She Loved Me
I claim I'm lonely but there's always a figure right beside me
Walking by me and grasping my hand through thick and thin.
I failed to apprehend her feelings from within,
All I cared about was the trouble I got in.
All I cared about was those sleepless nights having fun with friends
Not caring about where or what adobe I laid my head in.
I was having fun while she was home crying,
Begging God to watch over me and keep me from dying.
I Never attended to her denunciated words, but she said she won't stop trying.
My heart wanted to obey but my mind wasn't complying.
And she still held my hand through the good, bad, thick, and, thin.
It was only a matter of time before I independently gave in
Only a matter of time before I could no longer run.
Before my shameful ways were done.
But again, my mind and my heart weren't at unison.
Then my mama step in and grab me from the depths of hell, grasping my soul tightly
Picking me up from where I fell.
Raising my soul from the deepest depths of Earth, telling her precious child act like her worth.
I couldn't continue to see the tears falling down her cheeks.
Each tear signifying something done by me, but you see
She told me to face that battle.
I could no longer run.
I was at war with myself but my mama had won.
