Family

Emotions and judgements
thrown at her like rotten eggs
They try to lasso her
with guilt and blame

And she wants to tell them
about the good intentions in her heart
But they cannot hear her
for they shout too loud
so she just keeps still

They demand of her
to be the person they want her to be
not the person she is
and to behave the way they want
The same words they used
long time ago
she had hoped things had changed
but she is wrong

And she just stands there
while she looks at them
astounded and in fright
what can she say, what can she do
other than to stay true to herself
It could be time to walk away

Family, sometimes it’s not
with whom you share your blood
but with whom you share your heart
