A very fast one as I came to the prompt late. Also, this isn't one of those 'write what you know" things. I just put myself in someone else's shoes and I think captured how he feels pretty well, unfortunately.
Family will let you down
Just when you need help off the ground
Just when you need them to stick around
Family is just a word
Pleas for help remain unheard
Holding a sign, "Do not disturb!"
Sometimes I wish that I could see
Why some folks love their family
That's not me
Family is full of pain
Nothing but a common name
I'll sit alone if it's just the same
Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.
