One Day You’ll Understand
I remember it like it was yesterday.
The day mom decided to leave.
She said one day I would understand.
I wonder why she left without me, dad, or Steve.
Girls my age talk about how great their moms are.
I wonder if this emptiness will ever end.
I wonder if I taking my thinking to far.
I don't know how she expects me to understand.
Finally I can't take it anymore.
I ask dad why mom went away.
His response made me fell like my body was torn.
Dad said she left us for a man named Clay.
Why did you leave us to be with another man?
No matter what you say I will never understand.

I am a nineteen-year-old college student at ACTC. I live in Ashland, Kentucky with my mom, dad, and my dog, Buck. I wrote this poem for all the girls without a mother figure in their life. I am very luck and have a wonderful mother whom I love very much, but I can think of a lot of girls who unfortunately aren't so lucky. I hope this poem shows all those girls that they aren't alone.
