Why?

Why?

By Aliyah M

Why would you put

yourself in this situation

Why?

Did you do this to yourself

you left your kids for

someone else to watch,

you had a choice but

you took the wrong road.

Why?

Why did you leave your kids

your love & joy your blood

laying there calling your

name, you turned your back

on them crying your a mother

why didn’t the you love your kids

Why?

They waited, watched, walked

all around looking for

you to come back

Why?

After 10 years you finally

show up wanting your kids

to love you as a your mother did
