The One Sided Family

I don't know what you want from me.
I've tried to show you, that I care.
I try to come down and see you.
You say you're never there.

Two hours worth of travel,
And it do it willingly.
It's been four years since YOU'VE visited.
None of you, will come to me.

I call you on your birthdays,
Attend every family event I can.
And now you all freeze me out,
I just don't understand. 

Not one, of you really knows me,
Though we share the same last name.
Instead of seeing my side of things,
You saddle me with blame.
