I Am My Mother's Son

Written by: James Loggins

She and I in a way are very much alike
We both resemble one another
I am her only son
And she is my mother

She has done a lot of things
That has caused many family members pain
She worries her mom and dad half to death
While I feel she will make me go insane

She has abused drugs and alcohol
For as long as everyone can remember
She then unintentionally conceived a child
And then in Nineteen Eighty-Nine on the Nineteenth of November

She gave birth to a baby son
She gave me my name
And then soon after that she would run
Away from all her troubles and responsibilities

But no matter what she has done
I will always love her
Because I am my mother’s son
And she will always have a place in my heart
