family ties

family ties

my mama never told me
that even if i be goody
college was no guarantee
that marriage and love
was really a war
2 am phone calls
he’s leaving again

what did i do?

my daddy always said
i wasn’t good enough to
carry his name
family comes first
and ain’t it a shame
the streets love me
more than him

what did i do?

standing here
on the verge of destruction
backed into the corner
that became my life
always tried to take
my family’s advice
if they don’t love you
who will

what did i do?

my brother seems to be
a superstar
two kids baby mama no job
but he’s an angel in the eyes
of those who watch me
and i’m the devil
for saying nay

what did i do?

then my sister
claims the place
where i could finally
lay down my body
and her soul
escapes
unblemished in my place
and i am left to blame
never good enough

what did i do
to make you not love me?
