Help!!!

Mental exhaustion, fatigued, limp
from overuse.
My mind overlaped about to collapse.
Subjected to mental abuse.
Confusion is infusing thoughts
Decay of unpleasantness has
chiseled my joy, peace and happiness.
Massive mess of disobedience infest me.
I've done my best to invest love and time
into my nest.
My protesting refusal to digest the sour reality
of my child's ability to ignore and defy my authority.
Causes disstress in my heart, my mind under arrest,
shackled by constant assessment of my past,
trying to trackdown my error
Is this some kind of test?
I confess
I'm not the best, but took on motherhood
with zest.
My head rattles from the battle
of unanswered
WHAT
HOW
WHY
WHERE
WILL and WHEN
questions repeatedly asked
The energy drains me.
I'm almost lifeless.
The tic toc of the clock,
sounds to the 25th power.
Alerting time is running out.
My world is closing in.
I'm losing my child.
Desperately
I HOLLER,
(((((HELP!!!)))))

"I'm losing my child. "

i hope these are just words in a poem and not reality. the loss of a child is something that no parent should have to go through. keep the faith, my sistah.

remember...
the past is the past
you can't change it
you can't beat yourself up, over it
life continues

keep yo' head up.

peace&manyblessings.

Thank you for your encourgement. My son thinks being an adult is just an age. I try to explain to him it's not only an age, but a behavior which he isn't displaying. I love him with all my heart and I have faith in him. He's a bright young man with an important future. I refuse to give up on him. If I did, I'd be giving up on me. Coco

It's a lot going on and I know I have not been here for a long time but it is about to change.
