My Feelings To You

Abandoned By Mom Poem

A daughter writes about how she feels towards her mom, who abandoned her when she was little.

Behind your shadow,
I stand and fall.
It’s a tough battle,
In which I feel so small.
My feelings toward you
you might think are dumb.
Sad, upset, confused,
angry, hurt, and numb.
When I needed a mom,
you were not there
to talk about boys
or to fix my hair.
Yes, you did call,
every once and a while,
but an ocean of tears
hides behind this smile.
Tormented, trapped, and torn,
my heart says I feel.
Seven years after I was born
my heart won’t start to heal.
I see other girls
laugh with their moms,
I go dizzy with swirls,
and crash like a bomb.
The anger in me
rages in fright,
always staying angry,
I just think I might.
Time heals everything,
I don’t think that’s true,
I know something
time did not do.
Time has been flying.
For a long while
I’ve always been trying
to show a real smile.
One thing that hurts,
and I don’t know why,
you moved far away,
and it makes me cry.
When I think about this,
to myself I lie,
I’ve gotten over you,
that I would not try.
You are a mother,
a mother of two,
me and my brother.
We hardly know you.
Every night I think
of how my life could’ve been,
tears run down my face,
and my world starts to spin.
These past few years
have been really hard.
For the rest of my life
I’ll be severely scarred.
It took me time to realize
what you did to me.
Tears in my eyes,
and you’re clueless it seems.
I try to be brave,
it really hurts.
You could’ve stayed,
instead of making it worse.
I want you to know this,
it’s sad but it’s true,
you hurt your little girl,
and your little boy too!
You ruined me,
you made me cry,
you really hurt me,
and to laugh I try.
There is a hole in my heart
the doctors don’t see.
I guess they don’t know
what my mommy did to me.
If you want me back,
you have to prove
you can be a mom
to me and Andre, too!
When I screamed for you,
did you hear a sound?
I guess you didn’t,
because you were never around.
I will tell you something
you cannot forget,
once you hurt your kids,
it will soon come to regret.
