"Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans"

-John Lennon

Let’s face it:
You did not become the person you wanted to be

And I did not grow up to be the girl
You wished to see

Sometimes, I resent you

For reasons I cannot say

I must hide them

All the way

I sometimes question

Why it’s me you hate

Is it something I did?

Can I say sorry, or is it too late?

You yell

And I scream

Put you and me together,

And we won’t make for a perfect team

Sometimes, I wonder

Why we fret

And speak the things

We know we’ll regret

But somehow

I know

You aren’t

My foe

That sometimes we get

Lost in words

And we feel like flying away,

Transforming into birds

I know you love me,

And I love you back

It’s just understanding,

That’s what we lack

But if I had to

Save a life

I’d choose yours,

It would cause me no strife

There is only

One reason

That applies to every

Place, time, and season

You are
My mum
And wherever I am,
That’s where I wish you’d come
