A Poem by Kacee

You would think that your family would understand you more then anyone else could, but they don't. I am forced to go to complete strangers for help because my family refuses to try and understand.


All the faces around me, all the people that I know,

ones that have been there forever, for they have watched me grow.

You'd think that they would understand what I'm feeling inside,

but instead they call me selfish, forcing me to hide.


I don't know what I ever did to make them hate me so,

I guess this is just a mystery, that I will never know.

I try so hard to make them proud of the girl I've come to be,

but the more that I try the more I realize how much that they hate me.


I used to think that we were close, part of something great,

but I then soon realized that they were all just fake.

They never had my back, and they never did care.

So, I pretend like I don't know my family over there.

Family can be the biggest scrutinizers within your inner circle. It hurts but if you've found the real you and they can't except it. Oh well you can breathe without them. Great way of shedding light on the inner turmoil that goes on during that type of situation. Great work. :)

I am an adult who has found myself trapped inside a teenage body. I am searching for ways to reach out to people, and be a part of something bigger then myself. Although many see writing as a chore, I.. more..
