I wish I could cry
Cry for myself, for my hopes and dreams
Lost to the twisting, tearing winds of fate
For my broken family
For the screaming and fighting and their crying
But I donít dare cry for myself
Because if I doÖ
Iíll never stop
And I have to be the strong one
The one they depend on
So I swallow my tears
Ignoring my pain
And trying my best to ignore theirs

Heaven doesn't want me and Hell's afraid I'll take over.

It is because of writings like this that you have become one of my favourite writers one this site. I find this very similar to my song "The Stage" in the idea that we have to put on this little performance so that we don't get in other people's way. All i can say is that, although i was always skeptical growing up in the house that i did, just realize that nothing lasts forever and that one way or another, lives can change.
