It’s Hard Work to Stay Positive

At the time
I couldn’t understand
why my mother
gave up

I couldn’t understand
why, with so much
life has to offer
she stopped caring

I swore
I would never
be like her!

She’d say,
“Just wait,”
and her entire demeanor

“Just wait
until you’re this age
then you’ll

I swore
I would never
be like her

The years and the tears
wear me down,
“Yeah, Mum,
I understand now.”

Sometimes I feel
I am becoming
just like her.
