ACCEPTED to voxpoetica: [link]Hear me read the poem: [link]
When I read Bee's [link]
earlier my heart went out to her. I wrote this meaning to write a poem to say hey, it does get better. there's going to be "I hate you's" and there will be inexplicable rage, and you will be the target, but someday she's going to wake up and you'll be one of her best friends
but it also ended up being a poem for my mother. But it gets better. I promise.
