The 3 decades I've been on this globe, Being mistreated by fam is what I despise the most. With strangers or so-called friends U can deliver justice with your hands. But family has the privilege of not being harmed cuz they're just that... Family. Angrily have I wished they were just people on the street... Someone I don't know & who doesn't know me. But they do... They've known me since early childhood. Doin' things & playin' games that only a child would. But that was then & this is now... Anyone else do 2 me what they did, they'd get clowned. Beat down, stomped on, & stripped of their gear, But they're fam & they know I won't take it there. Cuz I don't operate like that. I'll let them take their big lies & create slight facts. Retrace my tracks & erase them from my memory, Replace the shimmering images with something more pleasant 2 think of. Family & their fake love. I've lived this long not being around them, so i know I can live happily ever after without them. Just give me my immediate... I know if they speak, I won't get hurt believin' it. A family induced hole in the heart takes a long time 2 mend... I wish I could choose family the way I choose my friends... Very carefully.
