I’m a trust fund baby
but not your typical inherent
my mom controls it
just like she controlled my father
when he was alive
she manipulates me
like she did him

she doesn’t actually
support me
unless its what she wants

she tells me to move to SC with her
so I wont be with him
she tells me to pay something
that comes out of my trust anyway
so she’ll get what she wants

she act like she cares
but she doesn’t
she “gifts” me MY money
and acts like its hers
when its not hers
to give

everyone I tell
tells me to get a lawyer
to take legal action against her
but I bite my tongue

if only she knew
how I really felt

she’ll know
once I’m 25
and the money
is in my name..

I’ll never speak to her again.
please don’t tell me “family is forever” or that I “should forgive her” because you don’t have to keep ties with a family member who is toxic to you.
