She rants and raves
of all that she sees is so wrong,
never stopping to try and understand
or except that I am my own person.
And when someone tries to tell her she is wrong
she does not listen
because in her mind she is always right.
The walls in her mind are up
and five miles thick,
and the delusional thoughts consumes her
not wanting to except that she could be wrong.
The whole time hiding her own sins
away from the eyes of family,
of how she obsesses with the game of chance
to the point where
even the money her sister and daughter lend her
ends up being used at the casino.
And the threat of losing the home
that made a family will be taken away
because of her own addiction.
Yet, she attacks others
just to hide her own sins and faults
so no one would be the wiser
and only she
will be consumed by the nightmare
that she has created because of herself.
