My mom is from Chef Boyardee
Mac N Cheese
Just her and her brother
Every night

My mom is from worn out clothes
The consignment shop
1 or 2 dollars
Cheap

My mom is from a teenage mother
Working all night
Every night
Just to pay the bills

My mom is from a small home
Smoke
Fire
Childhood, burning to the ground

My mom is from a dead father
Only 12 years old
And her daddy is gone
All gone

My mom is from the school gym
Her new home
Clothes that are not hers
Toys that were never hers

My mom is from long nights at grandmas
The only place she could abandon
Maturity
And become a kid again

My mom is from stress
Piling on stress
Until she couldn't take it
Anymore

My mom is from stay strong for your brother
He is just a kid
He doesn't know how to handle
All of this

My mom is from tears
That weren't allowed to escape
And a broken heart
That didn't know how to heal
