"Mom, I want the last slice of cake!"
"Of course, there's more to bake"
"Mom, I want the last slice of pizza!"
"Of course, I'll just eat the bread from Lisa"
"Mom, I want the last chocolate!"
"Of course, I was getting a little fat, anyway"
The child always put herself first
Never considered her mother's thirst
But thats what made her a child, right?
There was no one but her in her sight
Until she longer saw herself first
She so dearly longed for the last slice of bread
But she told her mom, "Im so full my stomach will burst!"
She just wanted her mom to be fed
Because she knew
Her mom was hungry too
She finally felt
The emotions her mother endured
Swept away, right under her belt
Always there, but they never lured
She realized what it was all for
"Maybe this is what it's like,"
"To not be a child anymore"
