Poem Commentary

This was inspired when my father was yelling at me and I was staring at our fridge.  I don't like yelling.

Dad

All this stuff that I should miss

I’d rather have in thee abyss.

There’s nothing here left for me

I wish they’d just let me be,

My life has been just thrown away,

At least that’s what he’d always say.

There’s no one here to stop my falling

I can finally hear them calling,

My life’s gone by so very fast

I wish I could forget my past.

Out of all the things I learned

There was nothing to get what I yearned.

I’ve always gotten what I don’t need,

That’s being told, I won’t succeed.

To remember all the bad

I just have to think of Dad.

well 1 in line 8 the word here should be hear. This is a sad and hurting, poem, more than that of anger. I could feel your feelings behind this one, I like this poem good choice of words in my opinion.

Poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history.
