In Case You Didn’t Know - Poem by nyna bankard

When I don’t follow in your footsteps, you walk away
And when I’m my own person, you still don’t stay.
You exclude me from your group cause you say I can’t hang
When in fact it’s you who can’t maintain.
You call me a scrub when I don’t do what you want.
To tell you the truth, these are my feelings up front.
You’ve sunken to that level to where you’re farther than below,
And I’m moving on without you in case you didn’t know.

There use to be a time when all I thought about was you.
But those thoughts went away when you continued the things you do.
You drink your booze and smoke your weed.
How in the hell do you expect to succeed?
For someone your age in this world today
It’s so early in life to throw it all away.
But still you do not hear me; you continue to sink down low.
So I’m not gonna waste my time, in case you didn’t know.

You expect to be quiet. Sit back and not say a thing.
But when you insult my intelligence, I just can’t let it swing.
You think you’re big and bad with your hostilistic ways
But underneath there’s a secret that your inner self portrays.
I’ve tried many times to help you when you’re in your time of need
But all you do is push me away, thinking you can take the lead.
And I can see that when we’re together, baby we just don’t flow.
And we’ll never be what we use to be, in case you didn’t know
