I'm your mother

I'm your mother
you put your arms around me
and say you love me
but you wouldn't like
to work at a dead-end job
like me
you wouldn't dress your house
in old fashioned furniture
like mine
or have more than one pet
like I do
you wouldn't marry early
like I did
or have as many children...
you wouldn't fail
in the ways you feel
I did
you'd make more money
be more successful...
find more happiness
have a cleaner house
travel more
have a better car
more friends
you say you're not critical
you put your arms around me
and say I love you
I'm your mother
and things will be different
for you...
