Mother

Why did you leave?
Where did you go?
Could you not take me?

Would I be the same?
Do you know I felt shame?
The child carried the burden?

I have to talk to you as an adult?
How do I, not revert, to being a little girl?
It really is difficult to reconnect with the mother who left me.
I know I have to try.

:) It is strange how sometimes this happens to people speaking the same language... :) Nice written.
not that I have any porblem with it, though :) hope that isn't misunderstood.
I must admit that Japanese people ARE the most annoyingly polite folk.I have a friend who listens so courteously to everything I say that i wish he'd tell me to shut up and go away instead. another friend of mine is in the process of learning kanjis-they have 8000 characters.what a crazy language.
Very funny...and very well written. I'm assuming that it is true. Raynette
Well in two months, japanese people could ask me about translations (i'm learning the language which isn't as tough as you may think) ... I may give them some bad translations, but at least they'd be better than Nakumawa (ot whatever his name is) . Nice poem (y) Made me laugh a bit.
