Mom’s Prison Sentence
You say you’re in hell paying your debt.
Well, I’m in solitary confinement, on this you can bet.
You are forced to face and pay for your error.
I hide from living life, stay to self, avoid mirrors.
I can’t even gaze my own eyes in reflection.
The hurt is so deep it’s like an infection.
Alone I remain
in my own hidden pain
and hope everyday, that you change your direction.
You’re my son and I love you so dearly, that’s true
Yet I am also so angry at you.
My secret cell of turmoil and sadness
is not behind bars or concrete or madness.
It’s inside my own heart all hidden from view
Son I am in prison,
just like you.
