Call Mother


And there she is again,
your mother,
inside of you,
forcing words out of your mouth,
words, you promised
you'd never utter.

What to do?

Fight it,
fight it hard,
get locked into another battle.

Accept it,
there it is,
breathe through it,
forgive her,
ask your child for forgiveness,
and hope that your child
will find forgiveness easier than you.

Ignore it,
that's an option too,
why not?

It's your life.
