Poem Commentary

A child's perspective ...

Raggedy Ann & Andy

Hello, did you realize that i'm still a kid.
Excuse me can I put in a debt free, pain free bid .
You keep envolving me in your chaotic affairs.
Open your eyes & your heart I'm not a grown player.

I'm not a toy at your disposal to be played with
then broke.
continuing to take my childhood for a joke.

Do you realize it shouldn't hurt to be
a child .
Try adjusting your parenting
controls to mild .

I know not what the world is about yet.
My home has become a constant war zone,
with traumatic dents being set.
I'm a person not your pet.

It's like i'm on constant punishment.
because you adults don't know how to
verbally vent.

There are some places that are open
to the public.
Those aren't my home, mind, heart, spirit, nor my soul.
I have every right to timely mature
and grow old.

These battles have been going on since way
before I was born.
It's not my fault that your emotionally torn.

I deserve a safe place to live, play, and
the opportunity to grow up .
every night before I go to bed , I say my prayers
by the time I wake up , empty is
my divine cup.

I have a nervous conditon now, I don't like to see
my love ones apart & sad.
everyday it seems as society tells me
"that's to to bad"

Things I strive for , long to have, are the things
i'm starved of .
Why do you take such pleasure in watching me suffer.
My connection to my heavenly father is
through a seal , which is supposed to
have a protection or buffer.

I experience this turmoil , hurt , injustice
first hand.
this world shows me  little hope for better days,
why should I have a back up plan?

I know my parents love me, would die protecting me,
yet you make them look like their useless.
Then try to make my parents seem ruthless

Who will be our mentors, If you believe
everything is yours?
what type of world will
we have once we're grown,
when mostly the seeds of negativity are being sown?

Thank you ... for reading with an open mind ..

Poetry is not the expression of personality but an escape from personality.
