Angry Poem about Family

You were never there for us, is the title of this poem. We have expectations of family members in our life, and when they don't follow through, we are left wallowing in grief.

You Were Never There

© Cerstyn J. Messinger
You were never there for us,
When we needed you the most,
You would just disappear when things got tough.

And when we did spend time together,
it would just end in promises that would later be broken,
and then you were gone giving us no reason at all.

Did you not think that we would care?
Was your life that bad that you had to go and end it there?
Were we not good enough for you?
Was that it?
