My Family Never Hears Me

"A family never listens."
"You belong to family."
I tried to talk with Mom
I feared I wouldn't be heard

"You belong to family."
She spoke with much conviction
I feared I wouldn't be heard
It was a perfect echo chamber

She spoke with much conviction
She thought that I would hear
It was a perfect echo chamber
She thought she reasoned wisely

She thought that I would hear
"It's not just you that we don't hear"
She thought she reasoned wisely
"We treat everyone the same."

"It's not just you that we don't hear"
Her words pierced my ears
"We treat everyone the same."
Her words then pierced my heart

Her words pierced my ears
"A family never listens."
Her words then pierced my heart
I tried to talk with Mom
