Mama do you remember
You said that you wished I had never been born
What could a child do that is so bad
To deserve not to live
Please help me understand your words
Were you just angry
Or did you really not want me around
Mama do you remember
When you threatened to make me live with my Dad
You seemed relieved when I finally did
Maybe that was the one thing I did right in your eyes
Was to leave
Mama do you remember
When you made up lies to cover your tracks
You said I was failing school
To hide the fact that you were failing as a Mother
I took the blame for you
I kept silent for you
Made excuses when you didn't call
Because I should have never been born
So I must be the problem after all
Mama do you remember
When he called me a little bitch
Or did you look so far the other way
That it now only exists in my reality
I waited for you to say something
But the words never came
I should have never been born
So again I am to blame
Mama do you remember
When he was sneaking into my bed
Oh wait, I never told you
Because you wished I were dead
Mama do you remember
When I wanted to be like you
Well maybe we are more alike than I thought
For wishing I had never been born
Was always my wish too
