Mom Likes Alcoholics

My mother is the type of person that would help you up if you fell down in a room full of people and they all laughed at you.

My mother is the type of person that would take in a friend when they had no place to go.

My mother is the type of person that is not afraid to fight for what is right.

My mother is the type of person that would sacrifice her life for those she loved.

My mother is the type of person that got straight A+'s in school even with a broken childhood and living on the streets.

My mother is the type of person that is a single parent without a college education because of bad circumstances.

My mother is the type of person that would adjust her accent to match yours, not mockingly, but for a deeper level of understanding and compassion.

My mother is the type of person that would stay with a man

without a job
who verbally abuses her
who uses her
who cannot be a father to his own son, let alone hers
who wanders the streets day in and day out begging for money for alcohol
who steals from her
who lies to her face
who brings home shopping carts every other day for god knows what reason
who expects her to wait on him hand and foot
who makes her late for work by hiding keys or taking credit cards
who fake burps loudly at all times of the night
who cannot sleep on his back because he might throw up and drown himself in his own vomit

All because she loves him

Maybe I can never understand.

Maybe she feels that she doesn't deserve someone better.
