Failed Foetus

by Shae   Sep 9, 2020

I'm still young
Is it relevant to say this?
That my ears weren't ready for
Those words you said
True or not true
I took it as a blow to my heart
anyone can say that-
I'm not enough
I'm incomplete
I'm not worth it
It wouldn't hurt me.
Because i know that you say otherwise
Mother's words could make me capable of anything
Even the impossible
To say that you failed
Is to say that I am a failure

Perhaps it is true
Perhaps i must change to be true to myself
But I'm sure
There is no way to change your mind
Ill just have to become
What you thought you failed to rear
By that time
I'd already be
A rusting spinning wheel
Harboring cobwebs
Unable to spin your gold
