those sacrifices we make

can't force someone
to act the way you want them to
especially when they got
so many reasons to be angry
to feel blue
to resent you for the way
everything turned out
I can see now that parenthood
sure can suck a person dry
take take take
'til you got nothing left to give
I can see now why some people
choose not to have kids
still they are missing out on a lot
it's those sacrifices we make
that ultimately make us stronger
can't blame someone
for finally being done with making them
why is it we always
feel like we gotta be
that cake left out in the rain
all for a few brief moments
of euphoria in the sun
no, I can't blame you at all
for being so fucking done
