    My Mother bared "6" CHILDREN,
    5 daughters and a son.
    Sadly enough I need to say...
    this daughter wasn't the one.
    That she looked upon as being hers,
    she gave me up...without a word.

    I wondered long and hard, at how this came about,
    out of "6" head of children...I was the one kicked out.
    Years and years and years have passed,
    the "6" turned into "5"
    I'm losing ground...and helplessly...
    I'm feeling awlful vibes.

    But life goes on, ...and on it goes,
    who'll be next...God only knows.

    More years has past...deaths again at my door,
    the "5" that was left...has withered to "4"
    I'm losing ground...and it seems to be,
    that these numbers are dropping ...rapidly.

    Mother dear, ...it seems to be,
    that soon you'll be left...with only me.
    And guess what mother...?...
    I'm the one you threw away,
    and guess what mother...?...
    I'll never leave you astray.

    Cause I know you miss your children...the ones that's gone at bay,
    but I'll stay right here beside you...
    Yes ME...the one you gave away.

    I'll shower you with all the love...the others didn't give you,
    It's in my heart to love you...and this I swear is true.

    RESPECTFULLY I UNDERSTAND AND SYPHATHIZE WITH YOUR FEELINGS...THEY SPEAK OF A HEALING THAT HASN'T HAPPENED YET...IN MY MIND IT'S A FORM OF BORDERLINE INSANITY OR WORSE....BANKING MONEY THAT YOU KNOW HAS NO INTREST OR NO RETURN. ALL THE SAME, I RESPECT AND MAYBE UNDERSTAND MORE THAN I CAN ACCEPT IN MY OWN LIFE. YOUR FLOW WAS GOOD !!

    There is a strength in this.
    That leads me to think there's a lot of strength in the writer!
    The ability to love in spite of....
    Shows you have GAINED ground as well!
    This was heartfelt.
    I absolutely love this one!!
    This was a very good scribe
    True love is unconditional......



    Peace and Love

    Sometimes one never realizes the treasures that they throw away, perhaps she will, this was an emotive piece.

    this is very true...being the bigger person,
    but with 'growth'...comes much pain.
    thanks for stepping inside...
