Because you love YOU

i'll be at your graduation, i'm so proud of you!

when is the play? i can't wait to see you in it

i know you'll be great. you're so smart and talented.

i'm so glad you're my sister!

But as usual, the day, the hour,the moment arrives

        and

              you

                    don't.

Disappointment.

Lies.

Word vomit

Spews out of your mouth

      at will

One thing I can always count on

Is you not keeping your word.

Like the president tweeting endless dribble

All the time,

I can count on You to

   not

       keep

             your

                   word.

You have a strange way of showing me you love me

but no problem showing

        you love You.

we are Family and i value that

i hope someday you will too

until then i'll

let you talk and

hear your own voice and

tell me You love

me.
