My Broken Family

©

Published: April 2010

My mom and dad have been married 20 years long,
I just wish she would tell us what we've done so wrong,
to make her walk out the door,
Does she just not love us anymore?
I don't know why she has done us this way,
sometimes I feel like hitting her with my fist

The bad thing is,
my older sis,
left the next day,
Things are just not going the right way,

It's just my younger brother, sister, dad, and me at the house,
It's quiet as a mouse,
all we do is just sit around,
without making a sound,
we have so many things on our mind,
so many questions to the answers we'll never find,
we've told our mom so many times we want her to stay,
but she still chooses to walk away

My older sister stays with her boyfriend
way out in Millen,
she visits on Sundays,
and goes back to him on Tuesdays

We're all in so much pain,
but it's driving me insane
I don't know why life is such a blur,
can't she see how much we love her

I really miss us being a family,
I just wish things would go back to the way they used to be,
but my dad says it'll take some time,
and everything will be just fine,
so as the days go by,
I look up at the sky,
and wonder why my life has turned out this way,
maybe I'll find the answer someday

I know how you feel, I really do. When I was younger, my dad left me for a woman. I was sent to my mothers to live. She then dumped me on my grandparents. It's like she left me forever. She's got three more kids now, and doesn't even bother. Well done, wishing you the best.
