Family, unfinished

It never lasts nearly as long as 
it should
When it crashes down like a 
house of cards 
And there's a million hammers 
hitting your skull 
And it's all you can do not to 
scream
Like you're the only one left on 
earth 
As if you were the only one 
graced with a brain
That even though your mind is 
faster, you don't count.
