Family = Despair

Has it really come to this point?

Where family no longer means much to me?

Is it just me?

Where ‘family’ no longer has value in my eyes?

Why is this and how have I reached this point?

I still care for them and I will always help them,

But I never thought I would reach this point,

Have I really become selfish and greedy?

Have I become my worst nightmare?

Family no longer means freedom to me,

Family now means despair,

It means anxiety,

It means obligation,

It no longer stands for love, care or protection,

I just hope God helps me find that value in family again.
