So Much I Can Take - Poem by Tiffany Green

My head slightly tilted
My eyes halfway shut
I lean against my door
Listening as they scream

My heart beats faster
My eyes burn
I close them shut
Refraining the tears to go
My family isn't perfect
My family has problems
Why do I always feel
Like its always my fault
Blamed and yelled at
My heart skips a beat, Listening to what she says
When she finish yelling
When she finish whining
All of the sudden I start crying
My mothers not with me
She's not doing so well
She needs money or stuff to sell
My fathers gone
He's with another
I wish he never left mother
I don't talk to mom
I don't talk to dad
There like people or parents, that I never had
I look at a book, one witch mother sent my aunt
Seeing a me as a baby, in the arms of some lady I cry all night, or hum a song
Wondering where do I really belong
My eye's burn once more
The tears i try-ed retaining
slid down my cheek, falling on once a happy family.
