grounded for life
Grounded for life, parents on your back, getting on you for every little thing. Never a happy day, time becoming slower and slower. No space no fun, stuck in this small room trapped like a dog. Grounded until further notice (GUFN).
Being grounded no phone no iPod no friends no life. Kids all over do one mistake and your parents find out and they got you like a scared dog. Why can’t they make a onetime slide or a freebee? Nope they caught you and they have a choke hold you’re not going anywhere. Every day you come home go straight to your room not one word no complaints no sound just laying quietly no motion, steady and still. Time goes by so slow so boring so blah. Wishing hoping they will let you off early, never going to happen. You hope runs short, you began to become pissed, mad, frustrated, and just all around grump. One day, you pray, they’ll let you free again. But then you have the trust stage, even though you’re not grounded you can’t go anywhere or be who you were they trust is gone, gone like your car after your step dad takes it and breaks everything, gone like that pet that sudden just disappeared, gone like your friends once they started doing drugs, gone and never coming back. You don’t mess up, you stay true, you promise you won’t do it again they act like they believe you yet still your stuck at this house no plain no one but you. Your happiness begins to dive off no fun, just waiting for all that trust to come back.
