They say they love me, but they are never there, and the truth is obvious that they really don’t care.
I see only contempt deep in their eyes, and when they open their mouths, they speak only lies.
They speak so sweetly when someone is near, but they plunge the knife in my back when they diappear.
They promise so much, but give nothing at all, and laugh with joy when I stumble and fall.
They hug me tenderly,and praise my name, but when I leave I am cursed in shame.
They celebrate your joy and smile ,and dance,but they would take it from you if given the chance.
It isn’t a stranger you should beware of it’s the family that raised you, the ones you love.
