Pictures of Mom by Mikel K

I don’t have
any pictures
of my mom.
I don’t celebrate her
on Mother’s Day.
I don’t know
what she looked like
when she died.
I only know
that she didn’t love me.
I didn’t  turn out
like she planned.
I hope that she is
in Heaven
though she was
kind of mean
from time to time.
