Empty Obligations


He says he doesn't want me to be like his
mother
Not because he doesn't love her
because he Turned out to be the other brother
Her and his father probably spent heartfelt moments
Other places than just under covers
He says he doesn't want me to be like his mother
Because the Rolodex of captured moments
will lead anyone to the illusion that it's just the two of us
All the while knowing we'll never make it so why try
He says he doesn't want me to be like his mother
Beautiful strong black Queen
Who's family was torn apart from the seam
Because his father liked what he'd seen
While I love his mother because she created such a dynamic brother
I too don't want to be someone's other
So no I don't want to be like your mother
I want to know why you get away with being like your father
