You Told Me To Shine

©

Published: February 2006


You told me to shine, To speak my mind
You said you loved me all the time,
We were mother and daughter
But we were best friends
I could talk to you and you could talk to me
But most importantly, you told me to shine
I would say I love you and you would say it back
You told me to shine and everything would be fine
That things will get better in a moment of time
Well here I am shining
So tell me, when will things be fine?

SO I feel this is the prefect poem that fits it. No matter how bad it gets everything is going to be fine. There is no way of knowing when, but if you hold your head up high and shine that makes it fine already. Because you are not letting it get you down.

This poem definitely touched me in a way I never believed it could. My mom and I have argued throughout my whole life. Anytime we talk or I know we will be hanging out, "I think to myself...what will we argue about next?" It has worn me down through the years to the point I almost don't want a relationship with her. She seems to be in competition with everything I say, wear, do etc...(fact: she's my mom) and this weird's me out! I help her with fashion when I can but I have my own life. She has also sided with my sister in situations through life b/c she has learning disabilities. But, she enables her to not ever be independent and makes me always feel as though its 2 against 1 in situations (my mom always defending my sister no matter what). It's drained me completely today and I can't go on with this insane family never changing their ways. I don't want to disconnect honestly, but I am lost and feeling alone inside and at my wits end with it all!
