I once had a family,

Like nothing ever before,

I was even the first born son,

Who my mother came to adore,

My father stood beside me,

Always never backing down,

Giving me the strength,

To pick myself up from the ground,

Next came my baby brother,

And my sister after him,

How was i to know,

I would mess it up for them,

I used to have a brother,

Before i drove him away,

He finally met my daughter,

Just the other day,

I used to have a sister,

Before i made her leave,

She always stays from home,

Her eyes i never see,

I used to have a Dad,

But now he's as a ghost,

Silently tolerating me,

Now he never boasts,

I still have my mom,

Though she would never say it aloud,

And still i always wonder,

If I'll ever make her proud,

So here i sit alone,

With thoughts and nothing to say,

Wondering when i sleep at night,

Why i drove them away...
