Level With You

By Arcassin Burnham 


You might have a mother that cares...
And a father that plays sports with you...
But I never had all of that...
So I'm not gonna level with you...

And while I walk around with shame and dread to not
Having the perfect family, I'm thankful for all my siblings..
While the burden is half mine to bare , I have to put up with
An auntie and a grandma that are so self-centering,
And last but least , the one that I ignore and never give my love
To is my dearest mother that's always lying,
I need to do what's right for me,
Due to all the memories,
And these weird bottled feelings,
I wanna know what it's like to live in beauty,
My word is set,
I completely digress,
In any situation that I come across, fact check,
I've been bakeracted six times for meaningful reasons,
And the 7th time we'll just keep It a secret.

You might have a mother that cares...
And a father that plays sports with you...
But I never had all of that...
(You know The Rest :))
