Just Wait

I stumble through life
I trip and fall
I can't always get up on my own
I call out to you


but you wont hear me
Do it yourself


it's all you ever tell me
I know you think you're helping


but you're just leaving me to drown
I try to do as you say


but I can't
You might be able to do it yourself


but not me
Don't you hear me cry at night
Do you just ignore it


or do you pause for a minute and


and think it over
I can't keep up with you


never could
You're always outdistancing me


why can't you wait up


just this once
I need you
Don't leave me here
I'm so lost
At least turn around and look at me


you can't always walk away


and I can't always try to catch up
I'm not going to follow you forever
I'm not allowed to be your baby sister any more


you won't let me
So now I'm walking away from you


towards people who actually care
And I'm not coming back
