I wish you would’ve told me
How hard this life was gonna be
Maybe even showed me
Them battle scars of life ma
The stretch marks
The bloody scars
The shards of your broken heart
How you kept from falling apart
I know this life is brutal
I’m learning fighting is futile
But, I’ll save that for my funeral
I look up to you Ma
You taught me how to be strong
How to live long after you’ve gone
I know exactly to whom I belong
So here’s to you Ma,
For always being here
For wiping away my tears,
Three loud ass cheers
Now we know or life hasn't been perfect
But shit mom it's been worth it.
Sure sometimes I feel worthless
But you always try to pull me through that
Momma. I'm sorry.
