We lived like we were enemies,
But the same blood runs in our veins.
You were supposed to be there for me,
But when I called, you never came.
I tried so hard to be all that you wanted,
But I cannot be what you didn’t want.
You were supposed to be my protector,
But you attacked from the home front.
I was always on my best behavior,
But my best was never enough.
I still just want to make you proud,
But I know I’ll never be enough.
You told me you didn’t love me,
So what did you expect?
You were supposed to be my mom.
At what point did you forget?
