Mother’s Wounds


I think of my mother's wounds
What if I was in her shoes
Nothing is better than today
Except for pain mother weighs

What if I was her
Knowing only to dread
What if I was helpless
Asking for more, rather than less

Mother told me once
"Stop trying"

No more, no more
Her wounds too much to bare
No more, no more
Don't compare

Her gaze upon me
Not feeling good enough
Her a woman
Mother's wounds too much

I beg of thee
Punish me
I beg of thee
Shame me

Mother's flesh too precious
Put death upon me
No more to mother's wounds
