    Written for my Mother
    RESENTMENT
    Candice Coker

    I tried to talk to you, but the anger and hurt prevents me,
    I have fought back tears for so long,
    I can’t accept the person you have become.
    Once a beautiful woman full of life,
    And now you have been reduced to someone’s shadow.

    You gave up on me when I was fifteen,
    Imagine a mother choosing a man over her first born.
    You let me convince myself that maybe I had done something wrong.
    Carrying around the guilt like a scarlet letter.

    Memories flooded my head every time I let someone get close,
    My heart stood at attention, fully guarded by the scars of the past.
    Broken promises waved in the distance
    As I realized I was trapped in my own prison of emotions.

    Nothing and no one is safe from the hold you have on me,
    My life is a target of your destruction.
    I have a constant battle to release myself from you,
    And I refuse to be your shadow.
