Unspoken all my life, never heard.

Unseen mind as weel be nothing.

You gave birth to me, but was I a mistake or a blessing?

You want a relationship when I need a mom.

I wanted respect and love.

I wanted praise and hugs.

I never got that, from you.

You sit there on your throne barking out orders and lies.

My feelings when I tell you, you don't listen.

What's the use of this, you don't care.

You can say I love you until you are purple in the face.

Your actions speak a lot louder than your words.

Sit there eating, sit there watching, sit there stalking.

I don't care, just leave me be.

You have lost everything.

I didn't need a friend, I needed a mother.

I never had one.

Orphan means you don't have parents or a home.

I do have a home, just not a mother with some help.

So I get up and dust myself off, I am not ready to suffer anymore.

Starving or not, my husband and I will help ourselves.
