Nothing's Changed




Mother,

what fortunes you held

you used to call me the devil's child

how accurate that was


Father,

you had your excuses

but I know you quietly agreed

I've never seen love in your eyes


and sister,

older blood by three years

but I wonder if you were like me

or if you never were



I can remember

a bully, a pest, a screw-up

I've always been


Every person I've met

wanted me out


And every chance been given

a failure



Even to the closest

I shared my all

tried and tried

then the smiles faded away


all that was left

was your tears and frowns



And now it's too late

I would give it my all to try again

but I've got to let it go


Let you,

everyone find a good life

without me involved



Perhaps I've been condemned since birth


Never the bravery to end it all



A walk ahead

in a path of pain



Nothing new I suppose.
