If I Only Knew

mopping the floor watching kids play

the same way i used to do every single day

back when I had a home that I could call my own

and though it wasn’t perfect, It was MY throne

but sometimes you can’t see the forest for the trees

and Lord knows I stayed down on my knees

for years and years or so it seemed

and nothing changed and i got mean

i started breaking piece by piece

cause the grief did nothing but increase

I had no comfort I had no peace

and then I broke completely

I needed the release

Four years later here I sit

on the same carport so long the owner permits

my throne is gone and my heart is, too

the people who love me, are so few

…my little ones, my only crew

If I only knew…..if I only knew
