Favorite Quote:
"I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go. Things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they go right. You believe lies so you eventually trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart, so that better things can fall together." -Marilyn Monroe


You’re the first person I knew to trust,
And I left you sitting in the dust.
You always cared for me when ill,
And I left, your heart standing still.
You protected me when a threat would arise,
And all I did was blame you for my cries.

You loved me every day in your mind rather than words,
But sometimes those things needed to be heard.
Day after day I put you through so much pain,
I still don’t know what was going through my brain.
I had the freedom to do what I please; I’m not yet an adult;
And with no one to consult, I fell to my knees.

You guided me my entire life, and all I gave you was strife;
If I stayed home I would have a better quality of life.
I shouldn’t have blamed you, you never did anything wrong,
I was the weak one, and you always so strong.

I admire you so much; you’re the person I want to be,
I shouldn’t have been the one to be the absentee.
Your caring and kind, and you go above and beyond,
It wasn’t perfect but I shouldn’t have destroyed that bond.

You’re my mother, have been since birth,
And I love you so much, for all its worth.

I wrote this poem mainly for my mom, I felt I would use it as a way to apoligize to her.
