Rain fell that night
a light, drizzling rain
There was a type of peace
that I couldn't explain

The parents I hated
were no longer here
Then shouldn't I be happy
and ready to cheer?

I hated them so much
They caused me endless grief
But how come nothing feels right
and I don't sense relief

That night I sat there
pondering what's wrong
and asking myself,
is this where i belong?

And then the fake smile
turned to a frown
and i could see tears,
trickling down

My parents, now
I don't hate them anymore
and i suddenly recall
the smiles they once wore

Their annoyance seemed
to have disappeared
and being alone
is now what I fear

But it was too late
They won't return,
and this is the truth
I now have to learn

This is really good. It makes me think and see that maybe having parents isnt so bad. No matter how much you hate them. I loved it keep up the good work. It also made me want to cry.
