No One Wins

You were the only one Mom

The only one who ever knew

I thought everyone could see them

But scars fade from black and blue


You didn’t have my back mom

Let them stomp upon my spine

Never heard me when I cried Mom

And I cried all the time


You sent me on my own mom

So dad wouldn’t have it hard

To see the mark upon his name Mom

But his name’s my darkest scar


And now I face my own fears Mom

The kind you lived with all your life

I finally understand Mom

You made the perfect wife


Rules of life change all the time Mom

And what you always tried to say

Its no good to choose a side son

No one wins life anyway
