I Did It Too

You only know what you learn
I was so young and had no where to turn
Growing up I said I wouldn't do that to my kid
I repeated the cycle and I did
I left her alone I let her down
just like my mother I was never around
my daughter cries the same way I used to
I wonder if my mom ever hurt like I do
I miss my little girl so much
and now I'm on the right track
I wish they would give her back
I did to her what was done to me
I wish I could tell her I'm sorry

I'm a 28 year old mother of 2 wonderful children and I'm currently struggling with a Meth addiction. I also come from parents that still struggle with addiction. I lived with my aunt as a child and often felt my parents choose they're drugs and partying over me. I said I would never hurt my kids the way I hurt when I was they're age. My addiction started about an year ago and controlled my life very quickly, I ended up overdosing and my kids are now with my brother and his wife. I feel so pissed at myself for doing this to my kids, I've been selfish and by reading these poems tonight I've gained a lot of strength and am ready to kick this addiction to the curb. Thank you for writing this it made me realize so much.
