Thank you
for being there.
Thank you
for how much you cared.
Thank you
for using me.
Thank you
for taking advantage of my family.
Thank you
for your crafty acts.
Thank you
for the creativity you lack.
Thank you
for hiding the true you.
Thank you
for not having a clue.
Thank you
because now I know,
just how far I will never go.
Thank you
because now I see,
how to oppose the monster you set me up to be.
Thank you
because I would never let my temper flare,
like yours did, I would never dare.
Thank you
because I'm the strongest I've been,
between you and me I'd always win.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank you!
Thank you for showing me,
the opposite person I should be.

i really like this and its seems very close to your heart and feeled with sad emotion. I agree the sarcasm is obvious and it shapes the poem, good work! :)

I like how you formatted this poem with the "thank you's". The sarcasm was obvious, and yet it really helped strengthen the poem. Beautiful work!

Sarcasm is one of the best and I like this poem. I could relate and dedicate this to a lot of people.

Great poem!  I like the repetitive 'thank you'; it adds a certain rhythm.  Excellent work!
