As reading this I began to cry, it had reminded me of my mother. She had known everything about me. When she was alive I was happy.

The Decision

© Lisa Wilbur

Published on March 2008

I know everything I need to know
I know all the reasons you had to go.
You cannot say that I am wrong,
And I do not believe your reasons
for why you are gone!
It was not the fighting that you hated so much,
It was that you wanted something
you couldn't give up.
The things I know, the things I've seen...
I still have one question-

Is it really better than your family?

My mom died when I was 9 and my dad just up and left when I was 12, but while me and my brother were with him he didn't take care of us. It really hurts because I was a daddy's girl and to watch him fade away into so many different bad things just really hurts): like to hear from him he never wanted me and that I was the reason he left it just kills me inside. He is now a drug addict and takes care of 5 kids that aren't his own. He went to Cali for the lady he is with.
