    I'm scared on disappointing you mom. I'm scared to be someone worthlessness to you mom. I can see everything you're doing to me, and I'm trying my best to give it back. I'm sorry if I'm like this

  15. Kate Scott says:

    This sounds like my inner dialogue my anxiety telling me to get my shit together when I am too fucking depressed. I am battling against myself the "angel" and the "devil" my two personas that will endlessly fight.

    Showed this to my mom and she was applauding and gauding Maia's words saying "That's right!" until at the end she saw the tears and was confused. Then I explained that she was impersonating her mother and then played the video again and she was… quiet for a while.

    A very moving Spoken Word poem. Beautifully and convincingly written. I'm wowed by the performance, also. I wonder if there'll be a poetry film?

    I don't think lipstick makes anyone a whore, you bore. Lol poetry is fun

  20. Challenging Fire says:

    It's not that my parents want me to be perfect like them, it's that they want me to be what they couldn't be. Like i'm just some sort of toy they can use to do what they want, because they messed up their own lives too much to do it themselves.
