Are We Family?

Are We Family?

A Poem by Hannah

I know the idea haunts you,
but I wish it didn't have to.
You'd close the curtains so they don't see her;
someone like me couldn't be your daughter.
Can I leave the closet?
I wish I could pause it,
flip a switch, turn it on or off.
I know you will just scoff.
How you would stomp and yell
if I decided to tell.
But I'll stay behind closed doors,
hoping to avoid wars.
I know I can never leave
'else dear mother has to grieve.
Are you ashamed of me?
I just want my family
