What Happened To My Perfect Life

Why did it have to be me
This isn't how it should be
My father was never there
I don't even know if he cares
My mom was in a relationship for years
I saw her through all her fears
I saw her cry at night
I saw the day she had to fight
I was there through it all
Back then she seemed so small
Now she stands so tall
It is like she can touch the sky
To those problems she said bye
While I laid in bed and wondered why
My perfect life fell, just died
My dad choose to do wrong things
Now just thinking about it stings
Now I have another sister and brother
They make me smile like no other
My dad is having another baby
Now I thought that was just crazy
My heart is bleeding like it was stabbed with a knife
But it's just me wondering what happened to my perfect life.

So many of us teenagers have had the perfect life. The perfect life our parents pave for us. Sometimes in a moment of anger we throw all that away, for what? the unknown. You will always be a parent no matter what. Don't give up hope in knowing that your child will one day get it. Hope its not too late. I pray for you dear mother.

I can truly understand this mother. I am a parent of two young adult boys. Learn to let go. If she really values your love she will seek it on her own.

Why does it have to be me?
Why does it keep repeating itself?
This ugliness we call hurt.
It was written in the books
Yes it was written way before she came
she is my joy and I am hers
Then she turned 18 and rebel
The joy was gone and she walked out.
There was no goodbyes, no hellos
My heart is sunk my head even lower.
My baby girl has turned her back on me.
All the love in the air couldn't prevent her from leaving.
She found another love, he is for this moment her shining star.
I wish for her to be happy. I wish she finds her way back to me.
My love is unconditional. I am here to stay, I am going nowhere.
Life is a journey we all must travel. I bid her safe journeys,
I'll be here for the return trip.

Love Mom
