Do you even care?

Do you even care?

A Poem by Brandon Bretsnyder
"

This is a poem about my mother.

"
Do you even care?
Are you even aware?
You cause me so much pain
The only feeling you should have is “Shame”
I haven’t seen you in a year
Everyday I would shed a single tear
You were my hero
But that was long ago
Do you even try
Or do you just defy
I wish I could see you
You see how much I’ve grew
But that’s not going to happen
I’m done trying to bargain
You’ve made me feel like a fool
All you are is cruel
I’m done with you being so asinine
Now is my time to shine
I will not let you pull me down
I refuse to frown
You put everything before me
Even that evil remedy
You’re my mother
But you’re starting to turn into a blur
It’s almost as if you’re a stranger
A stranger who puts my feelings in danger
So whenever you think of me, your son
Just know that with you, I am done

Direct and honest words.
"A stranger who puts my feelings in danger
So whenever you think of me, your son

We will be tested often in life. Sometime better to be the person who is willing to flex. Take two to tangle and one person to end conflict. Thank you for sharing the excellent poetry.
