Haughty, disdainful, commanding, but underneath it all so needy - the Narcissistic mother holds her children to emotional ransom.
Modern girls are saviours, focused, wise and sweet.
Corporate girls who are mothers too and pay for college walking the streets.
Limiting beliefs will hold you back and only sissies cry.
Let others tend the home-fires, our girl will win the prize.
If she fails she can be replaced but for now she’ll feed our hope.
To raise the status of our family above the common folk.
And as she sits high on her throne, looking down upon everyone.
We’ll be sure that no one tells her that, really, we wanted a son.
