Does That Mean?

You never tell me I’m beautiful,

Does that mean that I’m not?

You never tell me just how much you love me,

Does that mean that you don’t?

You never tell me that I’m a good mother,

Does that mean that I’m not?

You take the time out, for others, but you’re always too busy for me,

Does that mean I’m not important enough?

I reach out to talk, to shout, to connect,

And am met with rejection, a closed door or told that I’m the problem.

Does that mean I need to be fixed?
