A mother's love is heaven
A mother's love is hell
She can let you go and free you
Or she can lock you in a cell.
A cell where you'll remember
All the love she didn't give
And you'll search the whole world over
For that love so you can live.
You'll think you've found it everytime
That someone says "I love you"
But eventually you'll come to find
They put all else above you.
The path you walk is strewned around
With broken hopes and dreams
And yet somehow you're holding on
When all inside you screams.
How could you do this to me?
Just turn your back and go?
I love you, yet I hate you
Still God I need you so.
I will not fight you anymore
I've given up, you've won
Your worn out, played out memory
No longer will be sung.
For now that I have grown up
I no longer need the child
Who bore my childhood grief for me
And caused me to run wild.
I'll say hello to women-hood
And the life that lies before me
A sad goodbye to my inner child
Will free me and restore me.
To be what I can finally be
To reach for skies of blue
To find the love inside me
A rainbow shining through.
| I can't really find the words to describe this piece. I liked it but I didn't. I can't relate but it told me a story of a child who's mother is trying to keep from growing up to me I can see the child struggling against the mother to be who they really are and eventually having a child of their own and giving the love to the child that that person never got (if that makes sense) but this second child thinks that his/her mother is smothering them that's what i read into it.|
I hope somet of this made sense, I thought the flow was very good and it kept me reading.

I would try and work on the flow and keep a steady beat. Because poems should be able to flow from one line to the next.
But overall it was a very enjoyable piece to read.
