the words sliced through in a flash
of stinging recognition,
to what was actually being said
I could have laid down right there and died ...
and I knew for the last time
a billion times over
it meant nothing,
all my years of sacrifice
I fooled myself, believing ...
I can't change the way you choose to think of me
sealed and delivered,
why bother trying to push water up a hill?
I have my own life to live
I deserve happiness and love
with those sincere hearts out there,
and so very ready ...
Author's Note: sometimes the words family members say....hurts worse than a punch in the stomach...OUCH!!!!
