Everything I Have

Isn't it funny how the people
Who are supposed to always
Be there for you,
Are the ones who put you down
The most.
It's like everytime you screw up,
Those 'loved' ones stand there
And judge, every single detail.
They pick at you
And throw random things in your face.

Is this supposed to be some kind of
Insulting me and telling me
The exact opposite of what
I want/need to hear.
I'm this, I'm that,
I've never lived a tough life,
I'm a spoiled princess,
I get things when
I don't deserve them.

I never asked for any of it
I try to say no,

Is it neccesary to throw it
In my face,
How much I'm messing up.
Not once, but all the time?
You say i haven't lived a hard life
I've gotten everything i ever wanted.
But i don't care about all that stuff,

I would trade it all,
All of it!
If it meant that
i could feel happy
For more than half a day.
If it meant that
All these stupid problems
Would go away.
None of it matters,
Not at all.

You think there's only one way
To live a hard life.
Everything you've mentioned,
Has been physical,
You haven't walked in my shoes
So you can't feel
What i feel everyday, hour, and minute.
Everything i have,
I would trade it all,
In a second
If it meant that
The pain would melt away.
And you'd know that,
If instead you listened to me
Instead of talked at me.
