This page is blank, in your mind
These words aren't here,
These words are lies.
your home is nothing of a home
Family members with characteristics of
Strangers

You know nothing of these people,
For they are strangers.
It's 5 a.m. And still you cry.
It's safe to say, another days gone by.
You sleep till three, Wake up by nine
You'll cry again, but swear you're fine.
Another piece of crap,
Because you need a way out.
It's just like what he said,
"aren't you trying to bleed out?"
Another problem yet again,
About the boy you told.
You shared your darkest secret,
And now you watch him go.

Okay, kid.
It's time to let these people go,
And get on with their lives
you're jealous, and self-centered
And your pain, it still survives

Sorry folks, nothing to see here
Carry on, your life's prevention
I apologize for this spectacle,
she just craves attention.

I was raped and abused by my grandfather when I was 2-4. I tried telling people, but they didn't help until it was too late. They said I just wanted attention. They put me in foster care and said I would do anything to be seen, even lie. But that wasn't the case. They didn't listen to me. So now I hold all my pain and hurt and tears inside. They won't listen or care anyway.

My old brother is addicted to drugs and my mother is a single parent so my brother is abusing us by selling our clothes and furniture and sometimes he will beat my mother. All this effects me cause I failed my matrix because of him. He's stressing me cause my mother will die and leave us and we still young and I'm not coping. I wish I had my own house with my mom, little sister and my other brother. My old brother is using tik.
