Why are you so cruel?
Are you not loved enough, mother?
I promise, I wouldn't want another.
And I swear, you're such a fool.
This is why you cry to sleep every night.
Hoping to see the light.
And I don't know why you're so rotten.
I promise, you haven't been forgotten.
I don't understand why you have the need to scream.
I don't understand why you always go around crushing my dreams.
You've left me, mother.
but I don't hold that against you.
I've loved you, you always knew.
but now you're different,
and I don't love you, mother.
