It is what it is

You're not my mom
You're not my dad
You dropped me here
Like I was trash

They call me names
make fun of me
You say you care
How could that be

I want my mom
I hate this place
I need her now
Her warm embrace

But shes not there
She never was
Shes out somewhere
Hopped up on drugs

I needed love
I needed care
But in its place
I got despair

So in my heart
where love should be
Is a gaping hole
For all to see

"I write to escape reality. I write to be free. I write because I can lie or tell the truth. I write because I love it. I write because...that's the real me. I am a writer..." -TaylorBreanne
