I am in my teens, I am - well much older
and a daughter. and her mother.
Sometimes I miss being a Sometimes I miss my little girl
child and being taken care of, And taking care of her,
But mainly I want to grow up. But most of the time I wish she’d act more grown up.
I wonder when she will ever I wonder when she will accept
allow me more freedom? more responsibility?
What does she expect of me?
like a child and the next “Let her handle it”, and the next
she expects me to be an adult. complains that we aren’t helping her enough.
No matter what I do it is always wrong!
She is so confusing!
I am so busy
And have so many responsibilities
I feel she doesn’t understand
all the pressures
in my life.
She doesn’t appreciate all
I do for her.
She doesn’t recognize
that I have
She doesn’t listen to
Anything I have to say.
Why doesn’t she understand me!
