Is This Your Fear?
Author: Cheryl


What are you most afraid of?
That "they'll" squirrel me away in the dead of the night out of your life forever?

Are you afraid I'll slink away with "them" beneath your nose just to escape you?

You're not evil.

You're human. You're my Mum.

But your fears are unfounded.

I love you.
But I don't like the way you make me feel guilty when I've done nothing wrong.

I had a choice a few years back to go in one direction or another.
I chose the one to be closer to you.

Is that the action of someone who wants to get away from you or will allow themselves to be taken away by others?

Think about it!

Is this your fear

my mum always makes me feel bad and guilty and I think if she ever knew that I wanted to marry my boyfriend she'd make me choose well as harsh as it sounds I'd choose my boyfriend - he makes me happy she doesn't.
