"It's better to burn out than to fade away..." -Kurt Cobain

I remember when mommy was all mine.
Whenever I needed her, she was there.
And I thought nothing could come between us.
But one day, a fly came.
How innocent it seemed at first.
But overtime, it grew to be annoying.
And now I can't get the fly to go away.
It never reaps a moment of silence.
And now the fly has mommy all to itself.

this is about how I felt when my brother was born and made me feel like he was driving a wedge between me and my mom.
