A poem I wrote when my family gave up on each other.

They've all got picture perfet lives

They've all got it made

Laughing at me struggling to survive

Deprate in the shade

All the anger and tension

All the hate that's been manifested

In this place lacking affection

Where I lay nights awake, unrested

I try to soften the mood

With playful little jokes

But they take it as me being rude

And silenced, in hatred I soak

We're not as a family should be

Laughing, hanging out

They're blinded by their greed

Money's all they care about

I've strived every day

To make this hell a happy home

But no words of affection do they say

They just content to pout and moan

So what should I do now?

Give up and walk away?

Or continue figting hatered

Day after weary day
