Just to Let You Know MAG

By MaryEllen, CT, Middletown, CT

Your butchering words
In the beginning
Went through my head
As a child who listens
To every word you say

Your constant sarcasm
Your words which
I thought were the truth
The never giving up

Just to let you know, Dad
Those butchering words
To me are now worthless
For I know now
It was only your sickness

Wow. Your words are powerful, but I feel to make your piece even stronger their should have been a deeper meaning behind your words. All they did was flat out say what you had to say.

this was a really good poem, i love how you say that you got over it and forgave them for something that they couldnt control, that shows real character
