Cinnamon Brown

I never knew why they said step-child
But now I realize
because you are always skipped over like the bottom stair
they step on your feelings and don't even care
They step over you as you sleep on the floor
and step on your things left at the front door
they step on your emotions and your feelings inside
they even wipe their feet all over your pride
they step on your name
and your dream of fame
I am glad now i know that the word step is not just for show
