A Child Forgotten

When I was a child I knew no kind words
I always feared to open my door
Air so thick with my failure one could barely breath
They never looked at me that I could see
Daily I hoped that they would just smile at me
Even if only for a second or two
This never came to me
I was the shameful failure of this family
They scrubed off all evidence that I ever belonged to them
If only they would of taken the time to see me
This failure then maybe I would not be
Then they would look and like what they see in me
