It hurts when I look at you
Your chin raised so high
So full of self-virtue
You don’t hear my cry
Your eyes full of judgment
As you survey around
Your lips spill your disappointment
As my confidence you pound
Your words so critical
Delivered with a smile
Your opinion of me brutal
Your own child you revile
For years I have tried
To earn more than your love
Needing your friendship, respect, and pride
And receiving none of the above
Locked together by blood
Our family ties tight
What should be ours sacred
Has been killed by the never-ending fight
So please believe me when I say
That our time has reached its end
I never meant for it to be this way
But my life I’m no longer willing to defend
I miss what we could have had
But it was only a dream
I like my life good or bad
And no longer look to gain your esteem
It hurts when you look at me
I always wanted to be close
And knowing we never will be
Not mother and daughter… now only foes
