My Mother’s Unconditional Love

by L. George

I have disappointed you
Hurt you
Cursed you
And made you cry.
Told you numerous times, “I wish you’d die!”
I said that I hated you
I said this and that and there of,
But my ungrateful ass you continued to love.
Many arguments and fights we’ve had
About everything under the sun, even Dad
Dragged the children into it
And had them hysterical
Our two signs, both astrological
Nowhere near equal: a scorpion and a bull
Even the time when you said you had enough,
My selfish ass, you continued to love.
The bond between mother and daughter we never did share
The echo is my head is me saying, “I don’t care!”
I hate it that I have to be away for it to seem repaired,
Keeping my distance to make it seem like I really do care,
Though you think I don’t, I know that one thing is true,
The Heavenly Father that resides above
Makes me realize daily that my sorry ass, you do love!
