My Mom’s Unapperciated Gift


your day begins normal, til him you meet
maybe he was attractive but no wait, this wasn't a attraction at all
he probably had money for any drug
good for you, a store you wouldn't have to mug
your disease is like a flush eating bug
getting your fix is like feeding yourself a unhealthy meal.
for all I know this was probably a deal.
you make love to him
then two babies you carry
but yet you don't marry
each and everyday you choose not to fight the urge to use
you're like a person that needs pillls for a short fuse.
you knew your babies were struggling to grow but stop snorting it
it's as if drugs caused our bodies to bake
i was born three months early, sadly
for the lost of my twin, me you chose to blame
but that's a huge lie but who are you are you to talk?
after I was born you didn't name, you should feel shame
i went through withdraw, I was sick
my grandmother was told I wouldn't ever walk
let alone talk
with my fight
with all of their sight
with her her hope I might
out on top I came
from what the perdicted this is not the same
