Today's Prompt is USE THIS LINE

The rules are...  You may use this line anywhere in your write, with out changes, as many times as you would like, in prose or any form of poetry.
Today's line is ... JUST LIKE MY MOMMA WAS... OURS IS ...

Perhaps when I was very young,
I saw her much differently, for
like any child, I wanted to be,
Just like my Momma was...

The years had passed into my teens
and her hands were weapons on me,
it took me to a lonely place, was it
just like my Momma was ?

I left that home of hurt and pain,
changing everything I could,
I vowed that I would never be,
just like my Momma was...

Then I found in life, a hurtful man,
who I thought I'd love endlessly,
but I was abused and found him to be,
just like my Momma was...

The more things change, the more they're the same
my longing for home became dire, but,
forgiveness I was holding close to my heart,
just like my Momma was...

I'm not the same person, nor is she,
a common ground gained in time,
I look in the mirror and I see, I'm
just like my Momma was...

We're cherishing time more, together now,
and I'm glad we've let the past go
I found a place where I want to be
just like my Momma was...

Hummm, This is a real rough one, in more ways than one ( tee hee hee )
The flow is off , it has no rhyme and I'm out of time... HELP !!
