It hurts when I look at you 

Your chin raised so high Your full of self virtue.

You never heard my cries, your eye's full of judgement as you survey around. 

Why couldn't you just love me for who I really am?

I always tried my hardest, I did the best I could. 

For a long time I've tried to make you proud but instead of encouraging words, I got put Down.

She didn't even seem to care that my heart was torn to shreds. 

She blamed me for all her heartache and pain. 

Didn't she realise emotional abuse can drive a child insane? 

She said us children was the one to blame for her uncomplished dreams

Thoes words hurt us children more than you could dream .

A daughter wanting her love and affection but all she ever got was her mothers Constant rejection feeling like a lost child with no one to love.

When I needed gentalness I was treated so ruff. 

What mother do you know aboundeds her kid? Weeks at a time leaving no food in the fridge. A trifling mum who didn't seem to care.

You was to high to realise it would affect me every year. 

Thought I'd be fine but for many nights

I cried. 

Over the years I've endured so much pain. Even when the sun was shining

mine was filled with rain. 

You left a scar on my heart that will always remain. 

I know this may sound insane if you haven't ever felt this pain. 

When dad pasted away I felt all alone wondering if I'll ever find somewhere to call home.

Instead of having a mum to help me out. 

16 kickout me out since then been living on my own 

Trying Figure out how to be a woman by my own. 

You stole my voice, I had no choice you took advantage of me and broke every promise you made.

But still for your sins I must be the one who pays. 

You stole my innocence in way's no one will understand. 

The things you did to me and made me keep inside.

Not only did you take my childhood, you took my life, turned it around 

and slit my throat with a knife. 

I have no effort left in my life, No helping hand behind me to pull me back to the light.

  • I been through the same thing.... Friends that aren't true friends will never understand because they didn't go through the pain you went through with your parent's which causes some people to act spoilt growing up to adult. Just throw them away because they won't ever understand. Make friend's with those who are like yourself. Not with those who didn't go through the pace that you had to grow up in. Selfish people are always those that never been put in the pace of hate like we have. Yet again spoiled children's that mommy and daddy give everything they want to. πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’›πŸ’› Think of it as a good thing that you will eventually have a better future then them. So move on from the trash. πŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’šπŸ’š 🦊
