A Poem about the way i see my mother in my eyes, and the possibilities of Why.

My Mother,
She put me on this earth,
Blood means absolutely nothing,
For what our relationship is worth,

I left her when I was young,
To her it didn't seem to matter,
She never tried to reach me,
Not a poem, card, or letter,

I true ly don't understand,
How hard that this could be,
To pick up a pen and paper,
And write down what you plea,

Do I ever cross her mind?
Cause i know she does mine,
No, she's probably too busy doing absolutely nothing,
What could I possibly be thinking?

Sometimes I wish I just knew,
Her deepest thoughts about me,
Does she really care?
Or has she just forgot about me?

And for better or worse?
I think it's better that i left,
Maybe she knew she'd hurt me,
So she gave up for the best,

And if that could be the reason,
Then I thank you for this mother,
Maybe you aren't the person,
I envisioned in my slumber...

"Thanks For Leaving Me Mother"

Heartfelt and superb write indeed!

From the moment of conception we are given
all that we would need in life. The Lord has
already put that strength, character, and lots of love
inside of that heart of yours. It is your time to shine
please continue writing from your heart.
Your light within is and will continue to shine from the inside out! All that the Father has instilled in you can never be taken away by any earthly being.

You young man are a "One In A Million" to realize this!

Henceforth, continue to hold that precious love and thanks in your heart that she indeed set you free. Reach to the highest highs.

Sending much love and blessings to you Chris,
Now and always~Author, Gwendolyn A. Thomas

Oh Chris:

This is sooo sad!!! I hope your experience with your mom would not cause you to lead a depressivce life. Know that everything happens for a reason in God's book of your life. If your mom didn't really care about you, and didn't try to reach you all these years, perhaps then it isn't meant to be. It has helped you to become a much stronger person inside, and you know it is true!

Forgiving her is a much better choice for you, and then you can move on with your life without hatred, and be happy about the strong person whom you have become! Being independent and happy deserve a lot to be celebrated about!

I thank you for inviting me to come and read this poem. I think it is most heartfelt and touching, and it speaks volume for many others.

A very thought-provoking write indeed!!! May God Blesses you always!!!!!

((((( Lots of Love to you )))))

Wow an absolutely heart wrenching write, but the great thing is you are writing about it...poets do that best...writing is therapeutic, it is good for the mind, body, and soul. My dad gave up on me and my brother and sister, and my mom. He did this by his choice and I have often wondered if he cared at all, I occasionally still do, but when I find myself wondering I focus on the good things in life like my children as this is where we can draw strength while also from the Lord, blessings and I'll keep reading, you did a great job.

Wow, this is straight from the gut
well done
sorrow can sometimes bring creativity, and its means of coming to terms with emotional issues......or not!!!
I guess it depends on the anchor of the hurt.....
good write Chris
