Well, well… Mother’s Day has come and gone.

Messed up time in my life. Another year, another day without my mother. And after this holiday, it’ll soon be your birthday, May 28th.

So May is just a messed up month.

Yes, I have my man. He will stand by my side. But the hard part is the pain you are feeling and experiencing in life for 29 years.

I feel like a psycho  for real. I am definitely in my feelings about it. It makes you go crazy in the world. Cause you have to wake up seeing people with their moms, and that makes you feel  like, “Damn, I wish I could do this with my Mom.”

But anyway… I love you, Mom. Happy Mother’s Day and Happy Birthday.

From your daughter,

Darlesha
