He does love his mum

But she’s got a cruel tongue

And she hit him too hard

She hurt him physically

Along with his dignity

The punishment

Too harsh for the crime

He’s not forgotten

But has partially forgiven

Easier to forgive

As the years roll by

But from time to time

The inner child cries

Why me, why not the others

How come I got

The worst of our mother

Not all mums are angels

Some are just strangers

At home
