my mother warned me about monsters in dark places but i guess she forgot to mention the monsters which live inside my head; the darkest place of them all
my mother warned me about strangers but she never told me what to do when the person you loved became a stranger
my mother told me to be nice to everyone but i guess she forgot to tell me to be nice to my body too
my mother taught me to always speak the truth
but i saw lies dripping from her tongue everyday when i asked her how she was
my mother taught me how to survive but she never taught me how to be full of life. i guess my mother searched for that one piece throughout her life as well.
