This family

by Mandy   Dec 18, 2005

This family is messed up
i hate living here
my mom has major mood swings
and my dad loves his beer

she yells all the time
for no reason at all
he gets drunk everyday
so bad he will stumble and fall

we used to be normal
a normal family you see
but then my grades started slipping
now they say they hate me

sometimes i wish
i could just die
get out of this life
so i wont have to cry

there is only one person
who has stopped me from this
she is my best friend
the one i would miss

so for her i will stay
she is the reason for it all
she is the one
who catches me when i fall

Thanks audrey!! i love u!!
I know its bad....sorry

please comment**

    Excellent poem sweetie. But even though things are bad at home, it's not everything. Whether or not you choose to believe it, it will change, so will you and your tolerance, your strength as well.
    Hang on to Audrey, that is the most important thing, to have someone there you love.
    And think about living for yourself hun...not because u want to get away..but live for you and who you can and want to be.
    Sorry if this was really
    Take care
