Wits End: Cut The String

I’m at my wits end.
Enough is enough.
I have done more than
my fair share to help you.

I could never sit there,
day in and day out,
seeing what I’ve seen,
knowing what I know,
and been where I’ve been
without lifting a finger
to help myself.
That’s just me.

You are not even
at the age of retirement.
Yet you act like
you’ve been working your whole life
But it’s really the opposite,
you’ve lived your whole life
dependent upon someone else.

I don’t know how you do it.
I’ve tried with you
But I cannot help someone
who is not willing to help themself.
It has been a tough lesson to learn
But I have to cut the string and let you finally grow up.
