As You Sit There Smiling - Poem by LADii3 T Hinojosa

As you sit there smiling
I stand here drowning in self pity
How could you do this to your daughter?
How could you hurt her?
How could you make her feel like everything she did was wrong?
Like everything was her fault
As you sit there smiling
I stand here crying
You claim to love me and want what's best for me
Is it what's best for me or what suits your needs?
How could you begin to know what is best for me when you don't even try to get to know me?
As you sit there smiling
I stand here screaming
I don't think I can take much more
I want to leave this place and never come back
I need to break free of this pain
As you sit there smiling
I stand here dying
Days go by and I try not to feel the pain you are causing me
I've become numb to the sound of your voice
I can't live this way much longer for some day I'll explode
As you sit there smiling
I stand here drowning in self pity
