Mother… Afraid

It has been a century
Since I was born
It has been half a century
Since I moved
To live with mother

I have been beaten
In childhood and deformed
Since I was born
I had aspirations
Answered with cruelty
My smile was rewarded
With slaps
My red face in the mirror
Became the face of fear
I am afraid mother.

I have been treated
Well since I moved
Deformed and retarded
No beating around the bush
The decision was to be painfully direct
In my face
In my red face
In my eternal fear
They spat their words that
Became spate of fear in
My heart
My heart that is still beating joyfully
My heart that I gave permission to stop.

It has been a century
Since I was born
It has been half a century
Since I moved
To live with mother

I am afraid mother
You are my fear!
