tear me apart

tear me apart
with your well wishes
this isn’t the game
we were meant to play

build your walls higher
and I will still try to scale them
I wasn’t always there
and you were absent too
my effort to repair that fault
should at least be a token
of my intent to bridge
the chasm we are divided by

I have made every effort
that I am capable of
being shut out is nothing
I ever bargained for
if what I am is not good
enough for you and your family
I guess that is something
I am not a part of anymore

that just makes me sad
