She woke and she watched her mother

drink her sadness away

Morning until night, every single day

A lifestyle was taught and

nobody alive was to blame

You see, sadness turns to anger and

is sometimes expressed through rage

Her mother’s mother beat her down,

she too grew up this way

She really did her best to change, I see it

on her face each and every day

But she too, lets her daughter

sometimes feel her pain

She who is often drunk, and also

not to blame

The cycle stops when someone down

the line chooses to heal and recreate

Lets all feel and heal the pain
