Family Feud

Local fame in the family name,
knowledge attained because it entertains.
It seems everyone knows about our pain,
gossip that ponders who's to blame.

They say they care but in reality
it's just real drama not on T.V.
I say views as I sit neutral, but don't you know me?
You must not or you forgot when talking about my family.
I don't beat about the bush I give my opinion bluntly,
I won't tip toe around, I'm down the middle, I aim very directly!

When emotions are heightened I can't hide my passion,
I don't know how to be submissive, it's not my fashion.
Now it seems it has all been blown out of proportion.
I am part to blame, if only I held back with caution.

I gave points of view to offer unseen perspective,
but it could be interpreted as an attack on how they live,
or negative outrage at the decision they decided.
They don't use the thoughts I give,
but now they mend bonds with their relatives.

All families have unique drama that they keep secret,
ours went public and everyone is aware of it.
Know this, our family didn't completely self destruct,
we are now at a stage, that we choose, that sees us reconstruct.

So there is no fear of what others know about us, it's all gone.
Whereas you fear knowledge of your family secret could emerge before long.

Our family survived an almighty disaster.
What about yours, did it live happily ever after?

That's all folks,
no reason for your nose to poke,
no fire left to stoke,
we survived, you won't if I hear you make jokes.

There is no outtakes or blooper edits
Shows over. End Credits.
