My mom never understood

by bernardtwindwil

I don't think she wanted to.

I remember all the screaming as a toddler She would rage, slap, hoot and holler She screeched and howled till she was blue

I don't know when or how

I began to comprehend logic would be my only friend Together through life we did plow

No life of drama for me.

I had as much as a child could handle at home I walked on eggs so she'd leave me alone I sought the truth to set me free

My life was her greatest shame

All her troubles she claimed to be my fault My childhood unending abuse and assault Deduction told me that I wasn't to blame

Cold calculations became my life

If reliable evidence was not there Then I could not safely care This attitude carried through midlife

My life was so cold

I saw no logic in love at all I wandered in an endless pall My heart and dreams on hold

I made an illogical choice

I felt and heeded passion Not at all my usual fashion I finally began to feel and rejoice
