Mother Child Poem

Poem About a Lying Mother

A mother who lies to her child. She has broken the bond of trust between them. Without trust, there is no relationship.

Broken Promises And Lies

© Jennifer L. Young
She has made many promises, yet never seems to keep them.
The lies she tells me are continuous, yet still I believe them.

I have gotten older, but not any wiser, for when she tells me to trust her and everything will be fine, I start wishing for it to be true and seem to think that she's right.

I love her more than words can say, for she is my mother.
But every lie she tells me is followed by another.

When did this person I love become broken promises and lies, when will this person realize I need her in my life?

I have learned a lesson from her,
never lie to those you love, for soon their trust will be gone.
There's no more wishing for what wasn't meant to be, I have to set her free.
