I Bet Your Mother Would Be Proud of You.

Everyone loved her
Such a beautiful woman
She visits me in my sleep

“I’m so proud of you, everything is going to be okay”
As she cups my face in her wrinkled hands and smiles
While the world around me is falling apart

I’m her messenger
“Tell everyone that I’m okay and not to worry anymore”

A woman I barely knew
A woman who birthed and birthed
Tortured by a man who didn’t deserve her love

The sweetest soul I’ve ever known
Makes me wish my soul wasn’t tainted and black

Momma didn’t want kids because of what she saw
Now her daughter is on the same path

She visits me in my sleep when I’m at my weakest
With her beautiful royal blue dress
They say it means heavenly visitation-
My peace, my calm

Saving me from my own madness
