do I really say I exist?

I exist in a family, where my shadow is my only friend
where Hatred and Abuse becomes a common trend.

I exist in a family, where I'm publicly embarrassed
and my mind is lost, where love and affection comes at
a cost.

I exist in a family, where they starve and disregard my
feelings only feeding me when they find it appealing.

I exist in family, where their trust for me is broken
they condemn me for being so outspoken, my mind is lost
but my heart is constricted, they verbally abuse like
I'm a drug to which they're addicted.

I exist in a family, where sleeping comes at a price,
my thoughts plague with saying "Think Twice".

Can you really say I exist?
