Family Pain
by Angela Stein

Why do family lie?
Why do family fight?
We suppose to be there for each other.
Family is suppose to be tight.
I don’t get phone calls nor text messages from y’all.
Something just don’t seem right.
Family pain is the worse pain.
The pain that make your heart not feel the same.
It really hurts when your own family don’t remember your name.
Your heart is breaking fast, the pieces falling from it can’t be tamed.
Makes you want to break down and cry when you hear your family talk about
you being the family shame.
Why do family lie?
Why do family fight?

We suppose to be there for each other.
Family is suppose to be tight.
Family will hurt you the worst than anybody.’
I guess that saying is right.
