WHAT WE OWE OUR MOTHERS

I know.
I know you want me to learn from your mistakes.

I know.
I know you want to save me.
Save me from things you know sting. Give me honey without the bees.

But you can’t.

And, it must hurt.
To watch your daughter let the wrong people in. To watch someone bleed and not die.
