Description: I wrote this because I have a cousin who has a mom like this, and I think it's very sad. I don't think that anyone has to live like this (with a mother or father who doesn't care about them).
Little Girl and her Mommie -------------------------------------------
A little girl sits alone
Waiting for her mommie to come home
Mommie's not the same anymore
Since she first walked out that door
Mommie comes home wasted, drunk, and high
With barely enough money to get by
Little girl has to cook, clean, and take care of things
Mommie doesn't know the chaos she brings
Little girl wants to tell Mommie how she feels
Because she doesn't really know how to deal
She goes over the words repetitively in her head
Because she doesn't want to see her Mommie dead
Mom comes stumbling in the door one night
And Little girl knows what she has to do is right
Mom walks through the door
Little girl knows she's not the same anymore
She sits Mommie down
Little girl is wearing a big frown
Little girl starts talking
Mommie starts walking
"I don't wanna listen.
I'm going in the kitchen."
Mommie walks away
With nothing left to say
Little girl starts crying
Because she knows Mommie is dying
So Little girl runs away
Now she's the one with nothing to say
Unfortunately, you have captured the opposite of what motherhood was intended to be for children; instead of security, the child is left at the curb. This was an excellent write in a child-like voice. You hit some critical issues in a unique way.
