"Life is what happens while you're busy making other plans"







-John Lennon


Let’s face it:
You did not become the person you wanted to be

And I did not grow up to be the girl
You wished to see


Sometimes, I resent you

For reasons I cannot say

I must hide them

All the way


I sometimes question

Why it’s me you hate

Is it something I did?

Can I say sorry, or is it too late?


You yell

And I scream

Put you and me together,

And we won’t make for a perfect team


Sometimes, I wonder

Why we fret

And speak the things

We know we’ll regret


But somehow

I know

You aren’t

My foe


That sometimes we get

Lost in words

And we feel like flying away,

Transforming into birds


I know you love me,

And I love you back

It’s just understanding,

That’s what we lack


But if I had to

Save a life

I’d choose yours,

It would cause me no strife


There is only

One reason

That applies to every

Place, time, and season

You are
My mum
And wherever I am,
That’s where I wish you’d come
