    hey, i was out of commission and i missed posting and reading terribly last week. i know i missed y'all. and i came up with this today...


    *untitled #37*

    i can recall getting the chicken pox
    having one of the worst cases they'd seen
    i was so depressed
    and against my wishes (as i recovered)
    you took pictures of my scarred blistered body

    i can remember recitals, programs, plays
    that i participated in
    that i was featured in
    that you were too tired to attend
    and because those white kids couldn't sing anyway

    i remember worrying about you
    after you would call me at school venting
    about my father and how he is
    and your desire for divorce
    convincing me that i (your youngest child) was your only ally

    and worrying that it was my fault
    that time (the 2nd time) you attempted suicide

    and taking care of you and the grandchildren (my neices) you
    begged to visit you during my 8th/9th month of pregnancy
    (you were all miserable and sick!)

    and wondering why you're ALWAYS sick

    and wondering why you stress me so

    and wondering why you zap all of my energy

    and this time, when i needed you to help me in
    my recovery of my tonsillectemy and
    all you did was mostly sleep and stress me and make me sicker

    this is it mommy.
    no more.

    Sometimes we just have to learn how to love different people differently
    And parents are most definitely different people.
    Maybe from a distance you can breath again.

    We real glad u back
    Nice flow Poet

    In the same boat sis

    You just never know what a person is going through. I think that we should have an online support group...NOT for the purpose of gossip or putting your bisuness 'out there' but to support other sistah's who may be goin through a similar situation as you and help them in any way that we can.

    Just a thought cause as of late, I've realized that in all of my mess with mom and dad...I'm not the only one

    You have a friend here if you need one!!!

    If I don't write it down I'll hate her...I know just how you feel:(
