life's little blessings...yeah right
My mom once said,"My son, we shouldn't lie.."
I made a strange face before asking her why.
She opened the oven and said, "Don't touch the pie!"
I wanted to and did, but first I asked her why.
I wanted to jump off a wall just to see if I'd fly,
But she yelled "No, Get Down!", and I asked her why.
I looked up and saw all of the birds up in the sky,
And I turned to my mom, And again I asked her why.
She said, "God gave them wings so they can fly."
I thought about it, and then I asked her why.
She said, "I don't know" as she let out a long sigh.
I thought about it again, and again asked her why.
I watched my mom pull all her hair out, give a shriek and a cry,
Fall and curl into a ball, sucking her thumb and I asked her why.
How strange...she gave no reply.
