What to Say

the hurt you feel inside
makes you want to scream

and break things
can’t control how

you feel
other’s say 

they know your pain
they can’t
they couldn’t

you let it all out
on everyone around you

but they did nothing
they don’t know that

even when you tell them
they think they did something

because you wouldn't be mad
if they hadn’t done something

but they want to know what they did
so they don’t do it again

but they did nothing
so what do you say?

    I wrote this after my mom got mad at my dad but took it out on my sister and I.
