FROM THE TIME SHE WAS A BABY

I'm not taking full responsibility, I'm gonna take some of it

I'm mad at her, "cause I'm tired of her talking to me the way she does, you know I'm mad at her, very mad at her, "cause I'm tired of her talking to me the way she does, you know "shut the fuck up, don't tell me what the fuck to do and you know you!re not... how can you come back after all this time and trying to be my mother, you ain't been around for 17 years, which is a lie, because... from the time she was a baby up until... I went to prison for four and a half years, that's when everything fell apart... when she was 7...10 years have gone by and I haven't been there, so... yeah I am mad at her, very mad at her

she hasn't called me so obviously her attitude hasn't adjusted...

 

you wanna know why? you wanna know why?

'cause I gotta go through this shit every motha fucking day

I can't take that fucking shit no more, with my father, he’s a fucking drunk, you’re a fucking dope fiend, and I gotta go through this shit, that shit hurts me. I can't take that shit and I'm tired of it, I'm tired of it,

I'm about to say: fuck all of you, for real! you wanna know why?

I can't take that fucking shit no more I can't take that shit,

all of you: I don't want your money, I don!t want shit from you,

I can do this on my own and I'm about to say: fuck all of you, 'cause

I'm tired and I can't handle it I'm tired and I'm too young to be shit man!

with my father, he’s a fucking drunk, you’re a fucking dope fiend,

I can't take that shit, and I'm tired of it, that shit hurts me: I can't take that shit, you wanna know why? I gotta go through this shit I gotta look out for you and shit. I gotta go find my mother

 

but I'm not allowed to come to your house!

So what? You shouldn!t have fucking messed up, because...

no, you shouldn't have! you just want people to feel fucking sorry

I'm a act like this, I'm a act like this

I love you!

I know you love me, and I love you too - I'm your daughter

you know what my father told me yesterday?

he wished I was never born - I'm your daughter

you know what my father told me yesterday?

he wished I was never born - Is that what he said?

yeah that's what he said and I bet you think the same!

no I don't think the fucking same thing!

bullshit, that's bullshit man, I'm too young!

ever, you are no longer my mother!

don't you ever in your life, ever in your life, speak to me again:

you are no longer my mother! Never.

THAT!S IT, YOUR HONOR

Your Honor, good afternoon, good afternoon every one

I can’t be remorseful for something that I didn’t do

but I would like to say: I’m thankful for everything that I went through... everything...I’ve admitted I’ve done wrong in the past, but I’ve changed my life around... no one in that house, gave their life to God...and I broke the chain! I started going to church, I asked the pastor in March

help me get out of here, because I can’t take my uncle anymore

the children don’t know no better because that’s how they was raised

Your Honor, I even had documents to show you

help me get out of here, ‘cause I can’t take my uncle anymore

I apply for housing; the worst thing you can do is try to bring kids up in a project 3 - 14 is when I apply for it. they answer me back, 9 - 23

I tried the D A, you just didn’t know that I tried to,

so why I didn’t try to get them kids out of there?, I tried my hardest!

because I don’t drink, I don’t smoke, I don’t get high, the kids have their friends who have some reefer wrappings on the floor

I clean up that house, I clean up Randy’s empty crack vials, yes I did

and if at times and if at times he dropped a crack vial that was full:

I’d throw it in the garbage, yes I did! you know what? I’d get cursed out late that I stole his stuff! you don’t know what I’ve been through but I don’t expect you to understand I didn’t know I was gonna cry,‘cause I haven’t cried yet ‘cause I’ve lived this life for years, and, and I took all responsibility until this day you don’t know what I’ve been through but I don’t expect you to understand ‘cause you wasn’t there and no one to askin’ for. That’s it Your Honor...
