Dear Mom

Dear Mom,
We've been through alot together,
When you and Dad broke up a was still a baby,
All I know was my blanket and pacifier,

Dear Mom,
The first man you married is the first man I can remember you being with,
Don't worry I get used to the fighting,

Dear Mom,
When we put our things in boxes I didn't think it was the last time we were going to see that house,
I know you think I forgot but I didn't,

Dear Mom,
When you remarried things finally felt like they were going right,
They were for awhile,

Dear Mom,
When you brought him home drunk for the 4th time that week I was still awake,
I can still hear you two yelling throw the walls,

Dear Mom,
When he swung at you and fit the door instead I almost left my room,
You never did replace the splintered door,

Dear Mom,
When you asked my opinion and I said we should leave,
You shook your head and told me to wait for change,

Dear Mom,
It's been a year now and nothing has changed,
I know I am young but next time when you ask my opinion take it into consideration.
