Favorite Quote:
Love is only a dirty trick played on us to achieve continuation of the species. ~W. Somerset Maugham, A Writer's Notebook, 1949


Love me, hold me, appreciate me.
That is what a mother does.
Kiss my forehead, talk to me, reassure me.
That is what a mommy does.

What have you done lately?
Stress me, yell at me, hurt me.
That is what you have done.
Dismiss me and disrespect me.

You don't deserve the title mother.
You don't deserve the name mommy.
You don't deserve my smile.
You don't deserve me.


The author's comments:
Was talking to a friend and she let loose on a bunch of dirty secrets about her mother. It pushed me to write this simple piece. Just expressing what I'd wish she'd tell her mother.
