Soulmates by Kaaren
Do you resent my strength, our differences?
My inner peace, my quest for healthy children?
I am not you. Can't you let down your defences
And see that I've grown from what I was given?
While you seem to critique the absence
Of the blessings that aren't mine,
Are you truly feeling the presence
Of those which are "thine"?
In our relationship I feel your pain
And your anger at that which you lack.
Although I see the relentless strain
Why is it I whom you attack?
I've loved you and understood,
As much as another can,
The qualities, both bad and good,
That one who loves you must understand.
I thought your anger was my fault,
That I caused your cruelty to me,
But now that we've fought
For years on end, I must disagree.
The war is over; I put down my arms.
You'll have to fight alone
Or share with me your charms.
I'm only your daughter, not a clone.
Please see me for what I am, so
That you can love me unconditionally.
You missed that art years ago.
I blame you not, but vow I love you, really.
