A Childless Mother

There's a woman out there who smokes her nights away.
Shooting up to get rid of the pain.
She has daughters, a young and an old.
Their lives, without a mother, unfold.
Replacements are made and they soon forget
the mother who God knows will have regrets.
It's graduation night for a girl so bright.
A mom on her arm, she forgets for a night.
These mothers who love without so much a thought,
a love and a life that cannot be bought.
So that woman whose drifting and drinking life away,
has no rights when she's not there for the everyday.
Their mom's not the woman birth made it to be,
a new mommy makes it their destiny.
