A Ballad of my Mother’s Love for me and my Love, in turn, for her
Hunter R. Barnes; February the sixteenth, 2014-
In my eighteenth, going on nineteenth, year;
In her forty-ninth, going on fiftieth, year
A mother sits watching her child grow up.
He was young once, with a snow-blonde head;
Not but half the height of her knee.
He’d eat sour tomatoes before the were red;
A gurgler from the start, he’d grunt laughingly.
He’d crawl from his crib in the middle of the night,
Braving the darkness between to be at his mother’s side.
Knowing she’d always forever care,
But unable to express love with words,
He’d look up into the eyes of she who held him there;
His small, soft hand feeling her flowing, brown hair.
A mother sits watching her child grow up,
But then he grew too big for

He's watching TV sitting on the couch when I arrived at the flat. He made no response.
'He mightn't have heard the bell.'
After put the bag to the table, I was dressed in simple clothes in the bedroom.
'That'll be fun?'
I sat myself down beside him and asked him.
Once again, I called out to him, but there was no reply. It was his favorite comedian's program. In addition it's the rerun of a program from last week.
He often says when I sometimes see the rerun.
'Football games are much more fun. I want Man City to win.'
As soon as an ad comes on, I just change the channel. So he couple had a dispute over TV channels. So I tried to ask him
'Honey~ you hope Man City will win the championship?'
I decided to watch TV silently because he gawked at TV. Although it was funny, he doesn't giggle. Before I knew it, I was laughing. But I was embarrassed when He's not laughing.
'Did something bad happen today?'
He got up and went to the kitchen. He's

"You're smile is grand."
"You look great."
It's all lies.
I'm none of those things.

A lost dog without known heritage

"You aren't an atheist,
You just haven't found God, yet."
"You aren't anyone's friend,
You haven't been fixed.."
"You aren't accept,
You aren't good enough, yet."
When will families just accept their children?
No parent hears the cries,
No parent wants to accept these things,
No parent wants a failure of child.
Yet, I'm here.
Lie after lie after lie is told.
Mother treats me like I'm a roach,
Father disregards me.
I'm the housemate.
I'm the failure
Part of me screams:
I give up.
Yet, the other part knows everyth
