Little Sister

Little Sister

There used to be a time when blood was thicker than water.

Promises were never broken, unity was the circle of life,

And family meant love and protection the day that I was born.

But now the mirror has shattered, and the glass remains on the floor.

Wounded hearts are unforgiven; there is no love in this family anymore.

I can’t hide my emotions, stop the pain, hold back the fear.

I am on on my own and getting by without you now.

There is not enough love in your heart to apologize to me,

To tell me you love me, so close the door.

I will never be your little sister anymore.

No one was around to see the fights, the backhand that caused so much pain.

I pretended there was nothing wrong and hid the tears that fell from my eyes.

There was no more love to offer me, only the abuse he knew how to give.

Now I realize he was never right, and I became his victim

As everyone else moved on and forgot about me.

Now the picture has shattered, and the glass remains on the floor.

I have the strength to face and admit that there is no love in this family anymore.

I can’t hide my emotions, stop the pain, hold back the fear.

I am on my own and getting by without you now, so leave me alone.

There is not enough love in your heart to apologize.

You waited for far too long to tell me you love me, so close the door.

I am not your little sister anymore.

Through all the tears I cried, I know I was suffering.

Through all those years that have passed, I realized

I turned and walked away from all the pain.

I will never return, never go back, because I now have dreams I hope to gain.

I can’t hide my emotions, stop the pain, hold back the fear.

I am on my own and getting by without you now, so leave me alone.

There is not enough love in your heart to apologize, to tell me you love me.

You waited for far too long, so close the door.

I have moved on without you.

I am not your little sister anymore.
