I'm Sorry Mom (Poem)

I'm Sorry Mom (Poem)

A Poem by Damien Davison
"

Last writing I will be submitting for a while, I figured I should write a tribute to my mother.

"
I'm sorry mom,
For all the times I went against what was right.
You told me,
"When someone talks, boy, you look them in the eye."
I'm sorry,
You expected something great from my life.
But the drugs quickly dimmed
Who you've always thought was bright.

You saw me,
Go through s**t you could hardly understand.
You screamed out.
Could you see remnants of my old man?
I'm sorry,
The path I chose was not part of the plan.
But you kept up with support,
And always lent a helping hand.

I would starve.
I left home at sixteen, living on my own.
Then I'd call,
"Hey mom, think you could bring me just a loaf?"
She'd show up,
A car-load full of groceries, soap for laundry loads.
Then I'd wonder to myself,
"Why the f**k did I leave home?"

Not much changed,
I can't seem to keep a grip on success.
Addiction beat,
Though I can't say that I'm better than the rest.
I got my girl...
Am I a good dad, come on, let's be honest.
Mom, I need a true answer...
Mom, how can I fix this?

Very powerful, there's nothing like a mothers love.

This is very apt for me as I'm reading this on Mother's Day. A heartfelt piece of regret penned honestly. Show this to her, she understands I'm sure. Mother's invented forgiveness.


Thank God for our Mother's, the salt of the earth. I miss mine terribly.


All the best,

Helena

Your welcome :)
This was a very powerful write. I wrote my mom a song for Mother's Day that I wrote a year ago and she loved it...but anyways, mother's are always the best support. Though they don't like certain things you might do, she accepts that you make mistakes and take the wrong paths at times. Yet, she is always there when you call on her...unlike if you called anyone else. They would simply leave you in the dirt. Though my mom and I may get into arguments sometimes and not get along, at the end of the day, I always remember why I love her so much...to know that she is there for me no matter what.

Even when they get stressed out. And anytime, you're very talented!
Absolutely perfect. I have no constructive criticism to give you. I just want to comment on it. I love how you addressed her (your mom), usually others write a tribute piece and just talk about the person. You addressed her; it was a sense of much more respect. We all have things to overcome; we'll overcome them, if we want to. You seem like you want to overcome and you will. The absolutely worst thing we can do as people, is give up. You're a fighter. Anyone who has ever lost someone, read this poem; they all can relate. Thank you for sharing this.

When you give up on yourself..that is when yoou lose..just hang in there..to thyself be true and start taking the RIGHT turn in the rosd instead of the wrong one,,God always gives us two options..it is up to us which way we choose..mom or no mom..valentine
