For My Mother


I'm starting to accept

That we'll never have

A real mother-daughter relationship.

There's just too much anger and disappointment

And resentment between us.

All it does is build,

So there's no hope to heal

And I just want to stop,

Stop hearing all the ways I've fucked up.

I'm insecure enough

All on my own.

I can't keep being

The one who isn't good enough.
