Wrote a letter poem ‘To my teen girls’ on the prompt ‘Lovingly, I hate you’ given by the TSL group on Fb
When you roll your eyes Or turn a deaf ear when I call or when I'm searching all over for my stuff only to find it after an hour in your drawer or lying in your room or your wardrobe because you forgot to put it back where you found it Or when you call me and expect me to drop whatever it is I'm doing and walk off in a huff Or when you remind me of my vow to abstain when I'm popping in sweet poison Or when you look at me with no faith when I say, 'I'm going to stop,' I so lovingly hate you I could go on and on But you get the idea and now that you know You may call me, 'The worst mother ever.' Or roll your eyes and say 'We lovingly hate you too!' But if you ever do, I'd remind you, that no matter what- You cannot talk back to your mother And no matter what I say or feel You must always remember Nobody can love you as I do or as much. Lovingly yours, Mum
P.S. Don’t get me wrong, I understand being a teen is hard too!
