My Mother Confuses Me – Poem by Lola Hornof

You were supposed to protect me,

Mother,

One day you would love,

The next you wish I was never born,

Not keeping him away from me,

Knowing it was going on,

You were in the room,

Then you would go crazy,

Hitting me,

I suffered at your hands,

There was no reason,

I was good,

Constant turmoil,

I was so young,

To understand,

One minute lifting me up,

The next knocking me down,

I never knew a Mother’s love,

She was so mentally unstable,

But I did not know,

Did not protect,

Just abused,

And let other abuse go on.
