You died 27 years ago, 

This Saturday. 

I hate that day, 

My birthday, 

And most of, 

The days in October. 

You left me!

How could you choose, 

Drugs over ME? 

You choose a life, 

Filled with highs and lows, 

Over ME. 

How could you, 

Give me up?

I was your little girl. 

And you threw me away, 

Like a bag full of trash. 

You'll never know, 

How VERY much, 

That hurt me. 

You left, the first time, 

When I was five. 

My mother packed our things, 

And walked away. 

You stood there, 

With nothing to say.

And let the two best things, 

In YOUR life, 

Get away. 


Those words, 

I scream,
