Where I Come From

I come from a family where the girls are favorites
And boys with minds of their own are hated
Wrongs exaggerated in gossip led conversations
The proof in all the dysfunction and complications

I come from a family where old women talk too much
And old men still act like they can’t be touched
Just a bunch of Wendy Williams and Deebo’s
Who in the Hell they all think they are, who the fuck knows

I come from a family where mommy played daddy too
And daddy was either a bitch or an asshole always shitting on you
Then had the nerve to tell you to be a man on your 18th birthday
And the family wonders how we turned out this way
