Mother knows best

I try not to cry
After all only the weak shed a tear
I never wondered why
Because why would I doubt mommy dear
“Mother knows best”
Isn’t that what they say?
Mommy said don’t be scared
So I try to keep my fears at bay
And I try to keep my ghosts away
Because mother knows best,they say.

I try not to scream
After all only the weak lose control
And I smile so it beseems
Like I wasn’t emersed in dole
“Mother knows best
Isn’t that what they say?
Mommy said don’t show your scar
So I paint over it each day
And I try to scrape my woes away
Because mother knows best they say.

I try not to set free
The resentment that dwells in me
The nightmares akin to death
The ‘death’ its self that steals my breath
I know I should let people in
But mommy said,”don’t let them win,
“They will hew you,my dear child,
” Don’t fall for it,don’t be beguiled.”
Mother knows best,I believe that
But does she know all?
The who?
The which?
The why?
The what?
I strongly think not.

Why should I not cry,
If the tears are ever nigh?
Why should I not be scared,
Of the monsters under the bed?
If I want to I’ll scream,
Let the tears fall in a steady stream. Because mother knows best
But she DOES NOT know all.
