Dysfunctional

a poem by Myrna Martin, USA

Why do I try so much you asked?
I find that question truly sad...
For a Mother to not to understand her Daughter...
For a Brother to always be mad...
I can sense your indifference...
The coldness in your gaze...
I am that awful reminder of past heartache...
Of the pain that broke through the haze...
I'm sorry I can't fix it...
You cant take away my DAY...
But maybe one day, you'll get over it...
The pain of a Father's indifference...
Maybe,you'll realize all the same...
I am your Sister, the same Mother that we share...
Our Father could not love us both...
And, I am sorry it's too much to bare...
One day, I hope you will let go of the baggage...
Let the simmering anger die...
Be glad of the breath I took to live...
Instead of damning my existence...
@2015 Myrna Martin
