Lament to my Mother

Why did you set your self-loathing in my mind
Why did you set me up to perpetually doubt myself
Why did you set my heart to feeling inherently wrong
Why did you set in me a belief that I’m unworthy of every kindness


44 word quadrille for Merril’s prompt on dVerse.

  1. Seems a lot of angst to carry in your backpack. For some things there are no answers. Best to let them go. You are your own unique self. You ARE worthy!

  2. I have friends who have or had narcissitic and borderline personality mothers. It is so sad. Makes you wonder how they were raised. I am blessed in that I had a loving and supportive mother who died two summers ago.I miss her dreadfully. I hope you learn that it isn’t your fault and that you will be realize you are more than worthy.
