Over It


Poem Commentary

This is a monologue I used in my drama class in High School, the picture I had to use for it was a woman crying while on the phone.

Over It

How could you do this to me?  You’ve betrayed me!  I’ve worked so hard to reach these goals, and you destroyed them, you tore them to pieces and burned them to the ground!  I was going to succeed.  I was going to be free of the ever-looming evil.  I was going to finally break through.  I was going to win!  But you, you ruined me, and all of my dreams.  You are the one person who keeps me locked away.  You are the black mark on my record, the hole in my heart.  You keep me pushed down in the darkness of my own depression.  So, this is where you want me, according to you, this is where I’ll stay, where I belong.  Fine, I’ll stay here, locked away, kept out of the sun, kept away from humanity, locked in this prison cell!  You pushed me deeper into the darkness, you say I’m so intelligent, then you insult me, tell me I’ll never amount to anything!  That’s all I ever hear from you, never praise, just scolding and yelling.  So be it, I will succumb, you are the cause of my failure, you keep telling me I’ll never amount to anything, fine, I won’t.  I give-in, and I’m over it.
