I was the first born

Your darling daughter

Swept under the rug

When I got a step-father.

I was your world

Your undying light

But you gave it all up

It just isn’t right.

You gave up on me

You threw me away

And when they were born

I had nothing to say.

Favorites, favorites

You love them the best

You gave them the world

And said screw the rest.

I tried and I tried

To gain back your love

But I was kicked out the door

With one final shove.

You just couldn’t wait

Til that wonderful day

When I finally grew up

And moved far away.

Now you have the perfect life

You have your perfect kids

So I’ll forget the memories

Beneath these eyelids.

Fuck you and all of the

Pain that you brought

Love and approval

Was all that I sought.

My mother, my blood

I cringe at your touch

I didn’t know

I could hate you so much.
