4. POOR

Mum always said we were.

I was too young to know what it meant though.

I thought all kids had to fill the bath with water from the kettle,

And all kids lit candles when the sun went down.

It was at school that I learned that's not true.

 

All these sacrifices were for me though.

Mum wore the same shoes for nineteen years,

And she often didn't eat so I could.

She didn't care though.

 

I was her little butterfly,

Who was going to spread her wings.

No matter how ridiculous my goal,

Like wanting to walk from Atlanta to LA,

She'd help me reach them.
