Finding Forgiveness

D. E. A. F.

Mother is very sad,

but she isn't to blame

I tink she wants to leave

run and change her name.

I'm sure she wants to stay

just not near me.

She tries to hide it when drunk

But I know she isn't happy

I have learned she hates me,

in the short time that it took.

I wish I could find forgiveness

but I don't know where to look.

I'm sure she doesnt really hate me

she just says it when she's drunk

And when she is I take care of her

despite the fact her breath stunk.

I'm sure I could her liquor binges

no matter how bad they get.

And I'm sure my forgiveness is out there

I just have to find it
