Knock, Knock; it’s just me

So many of you have no idea who I really am

Many of you may not even give a damn,

 

But today I’m going to share the real me

Maybe that will show you just who I can be

 

I struggle daily to be a good person

I meditate so my anger doesn’t worsen

 

Every time I feel like something’s going right

I begin to have to fight

With all my might…

 

To stay afloat

No joke

 

I struggle to feel OK

Day after, day, after day

 

I refuse to wear a frown

Even when my life feels upside down

 

I want to let you in

Let you see where I’ve been

 

How my mom has to always be right

How her and my dad did nothing but fight

I finally am telling them to go fly a kite

 

I’m tired of being the pack mule

I’m tired of feeling like the fool

 

I love my family I do

But I’ve finally got the clue

 

I teach people how to treat me

That was the biggest key

 

No longer am I going to lie down and take it

I’m going to make it

 

You can sit and watch me become a success

Or you can help me clean up this mess

 

I know I’ve done this to myself

And I’m sick of sitting pretty on a shelf

 

So, I’ve made a plan

And I’ll be damned

If it isn’t working

 

You should try it too

Maybe it’ll work for you!
