Go Ahead Let Them Walk in My Shoes

why do I hold these emotions within me
it is time to set them free
for every word you yell at me
I hold my anger in
being the responsible one
I just take it all
and dish none out
I do this so this family doesn’t totally fall apart
well guess what screw this family
none of you have ever been there for me
for I am now my own family
and that is how it will stay
I will no longer look out for what is best for the family when it is the worse for me
I will now put myself first
since all of you do it
why shouldn’t I
I’ll let one of you try to fill my shoes
ha good luck
I was spread myself so thin
there was no me left
your words and the anger they bring
has made me almost lose my life
and for that i must change
for my life will never end because of you
and your evil words

Poem of the Day

poet William Wordsworth


I AM not One who much or oft delight
To season my fireside with personal talk.--
Of friends, who live within an easy walk,
Or neighbours, daily, weekly, in my sight:
