Poetry

My Mother

She knew she was sick

but she had a life inside of her

termination was put on the table

and quickly thrown off

somedays she didn’t know who she was

five years ago she knew

athlete

top of her class

catholic

prodigal daughter

now she is

lost

unmarried

with child

college dropout

schizophrenic

How could she care for a child

if she couldn’t even care for herself
