No Strings

She's bitter, numb and cold.
Doesn't care who she leaves behind.
She doesn't attach to anyone or anything.
It'll just hurt her when they're gone.
Tomorrow she'll leave and never look back.
Regrets she doesn't have any.
She feels no remorse for what’s she's done.
In her eyes she's done nothing wrong. 
No goodbyes for voyage a head. 
She will stay for no one. 
Like a lone ship with no ties.
Wonders without reason but to leave.
She hates the life she’s been given
So many people love her she doesn't care.
Machine programmed to feel nothing.
Feelings make you weak;
She doesn’t allow weakness
She's cruel and cold to keep you away.
Because if she doesn't care there will be no strings.

    this is a great poem and i can related to it. at first while reading it i thought this poem could be about my mother, she abandoned us for a crack rock and every time she got us outta foster care she would crawl back to her rock and we'd get taken from her, this happened to me four times in my life./ but then when it got to the end i thought this could be me! not the inside me but the me my mother turned me into. anyways brillant write. =)jo
