mother, may i?

My mother died of metastasized lung cancer almost five years ago. She was a smoker from her teens. The tobacco industry holds much of this responsibility, but so does her childhood trauma. She was born to a teen mother with narcissistic personality disorder. Although my mother had a lot of trauma and issues, she held a deep love for my baby sister and me in her own way. I like to think of her watching over me and teaching me the things she couldn't while on this mortal plane.
