My eldest son is going through substance abuse issues at the moment.  He's assaulted me twice this year - last time recently he really hurt me.  I feel like I have failed as his mother

I do everything wrong, it seems

I hide 'cause I'm too ashamed

I make the situation worse

I accept what I should never

 

I love him beyond any word I could find

I know also that it's not my battle either

I just wish I could comfort him again as

I used to be able to do when he was growing up

 

I feel completely powerless

I see my baby destroying himself

I am a recipient of his anger and distress

I am hurting as bad as he is
