As she Was leaving for USC She looked back listlessly And unlovingly Towards the post office In which she Had sent a letter to her mother. After 18 years of living with her grandmother. She had never known another. And the letter went like this: You know mom Its funny just how much you make me wonder. Its funny how you put my mind through journeys Of places I have never been and Things I have never seen. How can you live without me? In fact How can you even look in my face with dignity? But yet you Learn how to play your games without Even knowing my best friend's name. But yet you say it's not you who deserves blame. Its quite strange How quick you are to tell me a thing You think will pacify me So politely With every sound of intent in your voice Hold on, my eyes are getting moist. You bring a thing of joy into this world A baby girl And its so funny- How I jumped from the begotten daughter To the forgotten daughter Quicker than you could count out the money To pay your doctor bill with. You don't know how much You make me sick. I despise you for making me a part of your physicality. Its funny how you're just like me. You didn't think I knew your baby daddy Was sucking cum out ya pu$$y Yet you told me how you Had to get away from that negativity. And you just don't know that my man did the same thing to me last week. Its funny how I thought all freaks were unique But I guess its a thing of heredity. And yet is funny hw you looked at me So judgingly When I ask you about things like Condoms and birth control and $hit TO PROTECT ME. I guess you really wouldn't care If you say me Somewhere in the gutter with HIV Or some kind of venereal disease. To think You went thorugh 10 years of marraige Before you even concieve it seems Before 1984. But if you knew it was gonna end lilke this Why did you even put me on this hellish. Place that you may like to call Earth? Well, hell I guess everyone has to be rebirthed. But to you, oh lawd gul it is such a disguise. There's only one thing you can do for me. And thats to stay outta my face. Her mother cried that night And later on her mother died that night. Her daughter didn't know that her words of spite Took her mother to the grave that night.
