Mom, how you hurt me,
Abandoned me,
Crushed my spirit and confidence.

What did I do,
What did I say,
Why don't you want me,
I can change.

Has been 36 years since I talked to you,
I am sorry I said I never wanted to talk to you again,
I was 8.
Why did you listen?

I have tried to make a life for myself,
Yet I can't move on,
Why did you hate me?
What could I have done?

I don't know whether you are here or there,
I try to tell others I don't care.
I pretend I am strong
I am an actress, a liar
I am neither here nor there
