How do you mourn
The loss of the living
The death of someone still living

I will not do as you request
Words, you use, are harsh at best
I, a horrible mother; for you to detest

Spewing lies for reasons I don’t know why
Channel that energy you profess
Stop declaring such unrest

Listen to those that feed you those lies
Don’t forget your past & reasons as to why
You want to throw it all away & hide

Address the life you so identify
Why throw away the past
It has brought you here “at last”!!
