  My mother’s chaos is my normal.

  Her lies, her cries, her self-centered ideals.
  She is toxic, but she can’t comprehend it.
  Her trauma robbed her of her innocence
  And while I try to be patient,
  I try to understand,
  I can’t help but think
  It also robbed me of mine.

I was inspired to write this by a prompt my Creative Writing teacher gave to me. It just blossomed from there.
