Mom

If i named every injustice

i have witnessed in my life

It wouldnot correct them

or give back precious time

why do I forgive her

or turn the other cheek

its because behind her strong exterior

she is weak

why do I stay

while she takes advantage of me

to her im a pay check

and to her husbands a piece of meat

I stay because shes family

even when shes wrong

I stay because she is mom
