" if your living, but do not act as one should when they are alive, then you are simply dead inside, and filling in empty space. So take risks, be reckless, the world will scorn you anyways so why not it be by your own causing "

I’m sick of choosing
I’m sick of loosing
I’m sick of wondering if you still love me
Or if all you want to do is piss off mommy

I’m tired of packing bags
I’m tired of jet lag
I’m tired of traveling across the country
For a glimpse Of your world
The one that’s left me at loss

I’m sick of missing you
I’m sick of the child support being due
Imp sick of the screaming
The sharp words
The drunken slurs

I’m finished crying
I’m finished lying
I’m finished fighting
The inevitable
We as children can only watch what you do
The choices are up to you

This was one of those poems that just come out of you with no effort. I wrote this in 3 minutes, its not meant to be amazing or perfect. But maybe more of a just honest perspective on what happens to kids with seperated parents.
