Dear Mommy.....

I am so, so, sorry, because I couldn't make you proud.
Your praise for others seem to shout out loud.
Many dried up tears along with cold shiftless nights.
A stern voice says to me "stand up child for your life

Dear Mommy, what do I do? When you love and resent
someone you respect and is very close to you.
I am an emotionally grown-up child. Been this way
for quiet awhile. My dear mommy again I am sorry....
