Words of a throw away child
Growing up I felt so alone
Although my sisters were there
I was so young when they took you away
I could only stand and cry
There was so much I wanted to say
But I was barely five
I don’t know what you did so wrong
But you never did come home
Mama why did you have to go
And leave us there all alone
We were only babies then
When they came and took you away
Things have changed so much since then
But there are things I need to say
Mama I don’t hate you
I love you even today
I just wish I knew why
You threw us all away
I sometimes wish you fought harder
To get us back with you
But maybe you didn't realize what you had to do
Sacrifice and compromise
Two little things we do
Being a mom is not easy
I now know that too
With two small children of my own
I do what I can do
Sacrifice and compromise I would have done it for you
The pain has never left me
The anger is still there
When I saw you didn't fight
I knew you didn't care
You left your family torn apart
Not even looking back
Three little girls all alone
Each holding their broken heart
We should have been the choice you opted
But we were last on your list
I gave up when we were adopted
But you were always missed
Please remember I loved you
No matter what I say
I know my words will hurt you
And I don’t mean to because you pain
But tears have run throughout my heart
Ever since that day
Sacrifice and compromise
Two little things we do
Sacrifice and compromise
I would have done it for you
My soul might never forgive you
My mind says I don’t care
I only tell you what is true
I hate that you weren't there
My life is very different now
Vie grown and learned some things
You weren't there to show me
Vie had to fail to earn these wings
But truth be told to you dear mom
Without you there would be no me
But this is not forgiveness
That I may never give
And although I love you no less
These words allow me to live
Each line releasing a feeling
Every word my testament
A simple way of dealing
With the hurt that never went
Sacrifice and compromise
Two things most moms do
Sacrifice and compromise
I would have done it for you
