MamaMama, you're not home anymore
You don't pick up the phone
You keep on promising it'll be okay
And wondering why I feel alone
But brother's stressed and so am I
I'm so scared, but I don't show it
Daddy's stressed because it's all ending
I wish I could pretend not to know it
I hide in my room and I close the door
Blasting my stereo
So I can drown out the sound of the fight,
You two shouting on the floor below
I know that you do deserve much better
I know he doesn't treat you right
But that doesn't soften the ache in my eyes
When you're arguing every night
You keep making promises
But you don't follow through
You say you'll be back by nine
But you walk through the door at two
Doors keep slamming and people keep yelling
I don't know why I can't cry
But I can't shed a single tear
Even when I try
He blames you for everything
From the divorce to my grades
He doesn't know that he's the reason
Why my motivation fades
I remember when I trusted easily
I remember when I believed
But I am not resig
The Reflection.Ever look in the mirror when no one's homeThe Reflection.2 years ago in Concrete Poetry More Like This
just because they dared to leave you completely alone...
And scream ever so powerfully but silently,
Almost as if when the glass shattered from
your voice's vibration, you were still very much... Invisible.
Everything still stood still.
Cry with every ounce of energy and pain inside of you.
Hoping that, that final bloody tear would change you.
Look up with blurry tears streaming down your fucked up face and whisper,
"what's wrong with me?"

Were all get a little lost.
But sometimes it's harder to find
your way back home.
To continue on the right path of love,
hope and trust.
To start searching for something again.
Sometimes the lost get hurt and confused along the way.
They stay that way.

I have hopes
I want to make a change
But what can I do?
I’m just a child
Nobody ever listens to me
Even when my ideas are good
The cut me off
And take the for themselves
For I’m just a child
What can I do?
I'm only little
To small to make a change
or contribute to society
Because I'm just a child
I try to speak up
But when I do, you shut me down
I want to help
But I know nothing
I’m just a child
I’m sick and tired
Of being belittled
If I had the courage
I would stand up
But I’m just a child
So I’ll stay in the shadows
And wait till I’m big.
Too big to be call little
But for now
I’m still, just a child
