A middle child's cry for attention.

Mama do you hear me?

I know the baby needs changing and big brother's gotta move back in, so you're busy rearranging, but mama....

Can you hear me out, please?

I only ask for 10 minutes is that so hard to give?

I got an A+ on that homework assignment!

Brought home a good report card can I get you to sign in it?


Do you hear me mama?

You can come in at nights and kiss baby on the head...

Sit up at night and argue with Dad before bed, but you've got no time for me mama.

You have your responsibilities, don't I fall in that category?

These are the cries of your ghost child mama.

I try to be good and I bring you no drama.

Is that enough to win your gratitude mama?

Or will it just cause you to catch another attitude mama?

Why do I feel I wasn't meant to be created?

The black sheep of the house who always seems to be hated.


Can you hear me out mama?
