Reevaluation

Treat others better than I treat myself.
The Holy Spirit delivered this message
to my attention this week. My relationship
with my mother went downhill over the last
few years and, as a result, it’s almost nonexistent,
but to be fair, I’ve tried to no avail
to make something out of nothing.

It doesn’t matter who is at fault.
My cue to repair the broken pieces, but it’s been
a one-way street. I don’t know what else
to do but walk away from the mental draining
it takes to maintain something unreachable.
