You forward my calls

You tell all the lies

Everyone believes 

And it all transpires


I just need you

But you don’t want me

Isn’t what 

Family is supposed to be?


Shame me

Blame me

Belittle me

Strike me

Causing discord

With words you can’t afford


I wish you could love me

And all my decisions 

Whether you agree or not 

I’m all alone

And you only care about what you want

I wish you’d care about me

And help me


But I’m all alone 

And you’re ok with that

But I’m not ok with that

Please come back 

Don’t judge or criticize  me

I’m only human

I need you

Want me


As I crumble little by little 

You feel better without me

My family
