This is Family?

This is Family?

A Poem by Soul Fire

You smother me for fun,
You hurt me to amuse,
You happily misuse,
You love to abuse.
What kind of family are me?
You, mother, and I,
Us three,
Perfectly imperfect,
As dysfunctional as can be.
How dare I say it?
My family? 
You tell me you love me,
But then you judge me.
You tell me I’m needed,
But then you leave me mislead.
You’re proud of me,
But I leave most things unsaid.
You tell me to do some things for you,
But then you say I do nothing good for you.
You tell me you love me,
Then you leave me astray.
I tell myself these are just stupid feelings,
But why won’t they just go away?
I just want someone to understand,
But how could they?
They’d judge me before they’d love me.
That’s what you've taught me.
You've told me I’m a good girl,
But then you insist I am a selfish, self centered miss.
You tell me I’m amazing,
Then tell me to go away.
You hold me,
Then push me away.
You love me,
Then tell me ‘’Please go away.’’
How dare I say it?
It can’t be so.
This just doesn't seem like a family,
Anymore.

excellent rant. family is such a sacred and cherished thing. the rules have changed since i was a child. both parents working or single parent families create a void in the role of parenting and values because some of the equation is removed by the demands and rigors of providing a solid family base. children are growing up too fast , more demands are placed on the children by the lack of a solid family base. great write! sorry if i sounded redundant......
