We are Grown

I was born into this family
many years ago
surrounded by my siblings
none of them I know

Strangers in a house
all growing up alone
keeping all the secrets in
never letting them be known

No one wants to listen
to the sound of a pleading cry
no one will hear my words
no one will even try

But I'm telling everything I know
I have nothing else to hide
they can keep their distance
and keep their secrets inside

now we're strangers in different towns
adults that are all alone
it's time the facts are told
now that we are grown
