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
