A Shame To My Parents Is All I'Ve Become
I have poured my heart out into words,
I have tried to share, but not sure if anyone has heard.
One gets to the point where they can’t take anymore,
The breakdown begins, and they are left crying on the floor.
I always tried to be as nice and caring as I could be,
But when it’s all said and done I’m just unimportant me.
A broken down girl that can hardly smile anymore,
Limping my way through life with a heart oh so sore.
Not asking much, happy is all I wish to be,
I want to be proud of myself, proud to be alive and be me.
A shame to my parents is all I’ve become,
A lost and unimportant soul, not even worthy of lying to die in the sun,
I’ve written so many poems hoping somehow the world would see,
That there is a beating heart in this useless shell of a human being.
Until my last breath I’ll always care for this world that hates me,
No matter how hard life breaks my heart, I can always be free.
If anyone remembers me even after my body has died,
Just remember my heart and how it cared so much it cried.
