Mom, I know you're scared,
I've been feeling ensnared.
My life is falling apart at the seams,
and nothing is what it seems.
I went chasing after my dreams,
and you were supposed to be on my team.
Now, I'm stuck in a rut,
and I didn't make the cut.
I started to drink my sorrows away,
and my mind has started to stray.
Where are you when I need you most?
I know you've been judging me.
From the sidelines where you can see
the downward spiral of my life.
Thank you for your words of judgement that hit like a knife
and plunging those judgments deep within my broken soul.
