Seeking Peer Reviews
They tell me that I’m hard-hearted
But I already knew.
Dear mother told me long ago
That my heart was golden, too.
There were many things that I despised
But mother would only state:
“Darling daughter don’t despise
What you only learned to hate.
And know that love’s a shield from death
Whilst hate cannot steal life
For the tears of a widow hold more love
Than the ring of a rich man’s wife.”
Dear mother never knew it all
