Stay Strong

Dear Mom,
You didn't start smoking until
this summer, when you found out
house was being foreclosed on.
I guess you couldn't take the pressure of the divorce either. So, you started smoking some more.
It got even worse when you found out dad was hiding money from us.
I didn't start smoking,
so why did you? I don't think you know how much it hurts me.
Knowing what smoking does to your body, I don't want you to die soon, I want you to live a long time Mom.
It's hypocritical if ya ask me. Your smoking, so why can't I? Were going through the same pain. So lemme' ask you, why DID you start smoking?
I love you Mom,
Stop smoking. Stay strong.

My mom inspired me to write this piece. I guess you could say that I'm kinda scared to talk to her about things like smoking. I want her to know that I love her, and that she should stop smoking for the better. Stay strong Mom. Were going to get through all these hard times together.
