I don't die"Honey don't hurt yourself!" My mother starts to cryI don't die4 days ago in Concrete Poetry
"I will if I have to!" I yell,
"Is this life or just plain hell?"
My mother looks at me with scared eyes.
I could see that she has tried.
"If you want to hurt yourself then go ahead!" Mother says.
"I bet you would love me better dead!" I warned her many times in her life.
"Here you are hand on knife!" She cries empty tears.
"This is what you get for harmful years." I hold the weapon close to my chest.
"It is time for my forever rest."
I wake up that morning just to see:
My mother smiling at me.
"Mother I'm sorry!" I cry.
"For what?" She stared and to calm me down she gave it a try.
"For all the years I said I hated you!" Tears rolling down my cheeks.
"Well that was long ago 104 weeks."
