Words From a Parent

(Parent)

No one will ever want you.
No one will ever care.
No one will ever love you.
No one will be there.

No one will ever like you.
You will never be good enough.
No one will ever need you.
You will never be tough.

You are way too ugly.
You are way too fat.
You are way too stupid.
And those are facts.

You will always be nothing.
You will never be right.
You will always be in the dark.
You never see the light.

You are a waste.
Don't you see?

(kid)

Yes I see now.
Cause you told me everything.
I understand clearly.

But

I don't mind what you have to say.
It doesn't bother me.
Like you hope.
As long as I'm NOT like you one day.
I will be just fine...
....

Aw thats sad :C Poor kid.

The last stanza bothers me though. It seems a little choppy in comparison with the rest of the poem. I think its because it was in a very rigid rhyme scheme before and then it suddenly changed. Its alright either way. ^^; Aside from that, I think its a very nice poem. I like the repetitive words in the first few stanzas. I think it helps drive the message home. All in all, great job ^_^

Oh my. If my mom or dad said that I would cry so bad. I get touchy about these things. And in a way, that person isn't really a parent. In my opinion, which has changed since I read your poem, a parent is a person that cares for you and wishes to see you succeed. Their love is very deep, and they listen to you. Having something like this happen would be terrible.

I agree with you. I'm a little emotional when it comes to this stuff. If someone every said those things to me I would be in tears also.
