“How can they not get it?”
How can they not get it?
How can they not see
How much pressure they up on top of me?
How can they not listen?
How can they not understand
How I cannot fulfill their every demand?
How can they not know?
How can they not believe
How much grief I receive?
Someday soon they will find
That I have made up my mind
That no matter what they say
I will not be the same girl as yesterday.
o ok then...
I really don't know why, but I'm not feeling this poem for some reason..... It needs more life and more emotion, I think.
i get mad at my parents alot.. but dont do anything u possitively no that you will regret in the future!
That is a really awesome poem.:)
I can really feel this. I am sure at least some of you have told your parent(s)/guardian(s) "You don't know what I am going through" or something of the like. I live it...I have many health problems that no one in my family has....let alone my school (statistically speaking) but I grew up to accept that fact. My mom has said "I can imagine what you are going through is hard..." she has no idea...
i love that poem! parents always think they udnerstand they're always "i know what you're going through, i was a teenager once you know" but if they knew how i was feeling then they wouldn't say what they say and do what they do, and they don't know how i feel or what i'm going through cos they never cut darnit!
*shrugs* i don't tell my parents anything. they don't really know when something's going on unless it's big. i don't talk about crushes, and i don't tell either of them when i'm upset. the only time they know something is up is when I have major break downs and cry. i do get a lot of pressure from them to be the perfect child (by "them" i mean mom), but i've learned to shrug it off and be who i am.
Thank you : )
this is a really good poem. i like it alot, and i can totally relate to it. i just always really appreishiate that, when i can relate to someone eles writings. thankyou.:)) and lkeep up the awesome work. <3
It's a great start, but if you could introduce some more concrete detail - for example, one instance where your parents piled up demands that you couldn't fulfill - it would make your poem much more personal and would get readers to feel more "into" the poem. :)
