The Bad Mother Archetype

With your beady eyes
your limp hands
your punishing judgement

Leave me alone
go away
don't touch me

I want my mummy
your warm hands
and your alive eyes

hold me 
and cuddle me
and tickle me

you stay away from my son
you go and sort out your house
you go and clear out your rubbish

The Bad Mother Archetype has no place here

Instead I wonder 
can we approach the synthesis of Good and Bad
become ethical in our way of being

Let each other be
not judge
