When I was a kid
I used to believe, mothers could read their child's mind.
That's what mom said. That's what T.V. portrayed.
Then I grew up, waking up into my adolescence.
That's when my disappointment began to flutter its wings.
I did my experiments. The results turned negative.
What I discovered instead, was that she was just a human.
She couldn't read me like I couldn't do to her.
I am her offspring but we're two different humans.
