A Mother Leaving Her Son

I tend to just write how I feel, and hope that it makes sense and has an impact on someone.

The Shadow You Cast

©

Published: May 6, 2022

Dear mother of mine
Was I ever worth your time?
My fragile heart yearns for your unconditional love
A feeling that I'm deprived of
I was foolish to believe your white lies
No longer am I a little boy
With wool over his eyes
To your pain I'm already numb
The sad thing is
The heartache is never done
They say time heals everything
But I don't believe that's true
Because it never brought back you
Never will I forget the past
But I will step out from the shadow you cast
