Another argument
Over something I said.
Wait, not what I said,
But the way I said it.
Of course I did,
Because I can never say anything.
Nothing except a yes'maim or no'maim.
Because nothing I say is important.
I'm just a robot
Who's programmed to listen to every damn word they say
With nothing in comment.
I mean I have feelings too!
Why do I have to control mine?
They get to say anything they f***ing want to.
No restraints because they're the parents.
What happened to getting and giving respect?
Down the drain along with my feelings,
Because a robot can't have feelings...

Parents can sometimes be annoying and weird, but most of the time, parents are just trying to be there for you and trying to take care you. But I can connect. You can't help, but have feelings. You are human, and humans can't help but feel. I love your poem, because it has emotion and depth and it's full of you. You really od have a talent and greatness. Thank you so much, for sharing this.
