~What hurts the most~
I do not recognize this world
it being so different from mine
this world so cold and bitter
i have lost my inner shine
Every street i turn down
takes me back to the last
i'm rehashing every memory
of a very painful past
I haven't came to terms with
all your harsh parental ways
raising us as your mother did
when punishment was o.k
Turning your back on family
when i needed you the most
to busy with your happiness
never caring while you boast
Ignoring all my falling tears
you said i would understand
someday when i got older
and was faced with lifes demands
I am all grown up now
with children of my own
raising them with love
never leaving them alone
I will never understand
why you walked away
telling me i'm on my own
and that i would be o.k
You will never understand
the pain i feel inside
knowing that as a parent
i will never leave their side...

This must have been traumatic to you, but I see that you are not repeating the past and have righted your ship even though you still feel the hurt. This was excellent writimg Beth.  Henry

Dear Beth-
I can relate to this well although my parents have been
together now for over 45 years-
BUT- As I tell my kids all the time, I will NEVER turn my
back on them, NO MATER WHAT!
Hope all is well for You and Yours~
Best Wishes to You My Friend~

it certainly does. this was such an outpour of emotions, it brought tears to my eyes. I have no idea why anyone would leave a child, it is so cruel and selfish, its beyond me how anyone could walk away.

This was so well put together, the rhyme scheme was very effective also, a very heart wrenching read.

all the best for you and your family
