I need more tattoos

To remind myself that my mom is the sweet devil who is going to pounce on me any moment.

I need more tattoos to remind myself

This ain’t getting over anytime soon

I need tattoos to remind myself

I have to fight when I reach this house

I need tattoos to remind me the world is still a beautiful place and not everyone is out to suck your blood raw

I need tattoos to remind me it will be okay hopefully

I need tattoos to remind me to love and parent myself

And not be the same mom I am tryin to save myself from

I need tattoos to remind myself

I am fighting hard for me

And I really do not want to give up

I need tattoos to remind me of the places I have to travel

Of the happiness I desire

Of the love that is waiting for me

I need more tattoos to tell me I am doing as best as I can

I need tattoos to remind me I am going to be triggered for days

And I may not feel like eating or working but I have to

I need tattoos to tell me it isn’t my fault

I need tattoos to remind me of what I fight everyday to be okay

I need me.

I need me to be okay.

I need to live for another day
