He said, "You are you and I am me. You can't change me."
So I became the mother and the father in the family.
He said, "Nothing happened. I was always true to you in a married sense."
But I do not trust him with my heart.
He said, "I am doing the best that I can."
So I worked, paid the bills, did the taxes, took care of the kids and made a nice home.
He said, "If you don't like it, you know what you can do." - meaning, I could leave.
I kept the family in tact and worked a little harder.
He said, "What did you EVER do for ME?"
I realized his reality permitted him to hate me for his failures.
