A girl writes a heartfelt poem to her Mom. She says, "Mom, I want you in my life and I love you, why don't you want me?

Why Mommy, Why?

© Esterlina Moy
Why Mommy must you treat me so bad
I was there for you my whole life!
And now all you do is make me feel sad.
I try to hug you and you push me away.
The situation is getting worse day by day.

Why Mommy could you say I don't love you
When you know that isn't true?
You know I love you with all of my heart and that I need your love too

Why Mommy do you make me cry
All theses hurtful things you say make me feel like I want to die.
How could you choose another man over me,
I would have never believed that something like that would've happened, not even in my wildest dreams.

Mommy, I am in so much pain
Too horrible for me to even name
I will follow your wishes and move
So I'll no longer be there to mess up your groove
Before I go, there is one thing I must ask

Why Mommy didn't our mother-daughter love last?

  • My mom was a bad drug addict. When I was about 6 my dad took me from my mom because of the drugs. I am now 13 and I haven't seen or heard from my mom for three years. She had a husband that she chose over me. Last time my brother talked to her was 11 years ago. I'll always love her no matter what but she hurt me more then ever.
