motherhood is never ending

Dear mother

How can you say to me that I do not love you

How can you excuse your behavior with those callous words

Do I not have the right to be upset

You are abandoning me

all I can do is be silent

while the child in me screams

Go away then

Be with that man

That man who pretends he cares for you

Who tells you sweet nothings filled with poison

But you don’t know

Mother you don’t know

I leave a trace of tears as I walk away

I won’t look back

If I do, I may see what I had feared

I will turn to stone
