1. Most people are other people. Their thoughts are someone else's opinions, their lives a mimicry, their passions a quotation.
2. You wear a mask for so long, you forget who you were beneath it.
3. You see, madness, as you know, is like gravity, all it takes is a little push.


I never learned from my mother
That honesty will always accomplish
More than lies
I never found out the truth about that

I never learned from my mother
That time heals even the deepest
Of all wounds
I never waited the time to figure that out

I never learned from my mother
That a hug can sometimes solve the most
Mind boggling problems
I never shared enough hugs to get that one

I never learned from my mother
That secrets can eat you up on the inside and letting them out
Feels so damn good
I never talked enough to know that

I never learned from my mother
That sticking with hard things is always
The best thing to do
I never stayed around long enough to realize that

I never learned from my mother
That hating isn't the only option and sometimes
Love can persist
I never felt loved as much as I should have

I never learned from my mother
That goodbyes should be very hard things
That can break your heart
I never had to feel pain when she walked out the door

I never learned from my mother
That mistakes teach you just as much
If not more
I never knew that I could have learned so much from her, while never learning a thing


The author's comments:
Just a spark of inspiration. I must admit that my mother didn't walk out on me nor did she ever not hug me or not teach me most of the things I say she didn't. This isn't written from experience.

--Before you criticize someone, you should walk a mile in their shoes. That way, when you criticize them, you're a mile away from them and you have their shoes.
