“The role of a writer is not to say what we all can say, but what we are unable to say.” — Anaïs Nin

Try to justify your
Pathetic excuses
I'll sit silent
Holding back screams
Let you continue
Your aimless tirade
Cause daddy's little girl
Speaks only on command
You say you're sorry?
I. Dont. Believe. You.

Wow!  That was really powerful, I especially like the last few lines, and the punctuation at the end.
