Reality Hits

Reality Hits

My pen tip cut as sharp as a knife,

and I sincerely hoped it would take my life.

I knew if I left, my brother would throw fits,

and unfortunately reality hits.

Blake could never leave Quinn,

or in his heart he'll never win.

Brothers throw hateful comments with their wits,

but then reality hits.

Blake and I could never abandon our brothers,

since to them we're like mothers.

Even when we try, we lose our grit,

because then reality has hit.
