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!

regret it

 

I remember the times we used to share

You used to care

You used to dare

 

…to love me

 

Loved you thru thick and thin

Catered to your Sin

Now there’s no mend

 

I needed you more and more

You created me, your whore

Then you showed me the door

 

There was no conversation

No alleviation

Of the situation

 

No goodbye, no reason

I guess it was the Season

 

One broken heart for sale

No, it can’t be sent by email

 

Slightly used

Definitely abused

 

Damaged goods called for the price to be slashed

It’s only slightly mashed

 

Oh hell—
