Ma'am

My mama says ma'am to her elders
Out of respect.
Every time she says "ma'am,"
The word pushes into my skin,
A tattoo.
A word of respect should not bother me.

A word used to keep power in check.
"Yes, ma'am."
"Thank you, ma'am." 

A word of respect should not bother me.

"Yes ma'am." I say.
The word leaves a foul taste in my mouth.
I say ma'am for my mama
She wants me to be respectful.

Still,
A word of respect should not bother me.
I have a distaste for the word ma'am but i still love it. 
I'm a weird~
