    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.

    bluewater....you know that your love is appreciated, always.

    skrybe....i'm glad you felt me. sometimes people don't realize that words CAN hurt, even physically.

    khasm....boo, you know i'm tryna be like you when I grow up!! :lol: Thanks for the love. I guess I am the example that age has no limits. Its all about how you accept your trials and tribulations that determines your maturity.

    :heart: :heart: PLAY :heart: :heart:
