Just how it feels to not belong within a family

Do you know what it's like?

Having your heart ripped from you

People THINK they know.


Do you know what it's like?

Having loved one turn on you

Due to lies and promised favors


Do you know what it's like?

Having a sense of unbelonging

Just "because" you're not like them


Do you know what it's like?

To be cheated of a family

Because of someone's self-interest


Do you know what it's like?

To watch them continue life

As if you never existed at all


Do you know what it's like?

To still continue trying

Through the tears and heartache


Because you have this sense to belong

Because you want to go back to "normal"

Because you need to feel something


Until you walk in my shoes

Until you experience the pain

Until you feel the loneliness

You will never know what it's like.
