I Am Not My mother

The most important walk 
Is less then a block
And it
Means forever

A promise made with a long stride 
That I'll always be by your side,
Doing wifely things 
Every day and night

Cause I walked…
Well what if I ran instead
Could I still be held accountable for your happiness
Or what if I skipped 

Even fell or flipped
Would the vow still make sense
It doesn’t matter I guess

I am not my mother
And divorce is just another lover
Found at the wedding dinner or the laundry mat 

In fact
Lets get divorced first and see how that fares 
Maybe will stay together in the end
