Taking Control

Mother dearest Father too
You do anger me very much you do
I have tried too
Console with you indeed
But these scars persist
From the marks of your fist
So I must resist
Change me from within
Learn to forgive those
Who hurt me
Forgiving me to begin
I'll never be that angry girl destined
To repeat that story again and again
And just because their like that
Gives no excuse I can
Because I am me
With the power
to control any way I am

    My will is mine, I shall not make it soft for you. - Aeschylus, Agamemnon.
    The poem reminded me of this, only the self control in your poem was a type to forgive, if I understood correctly. So really, I loved it, as I believe you expressed strong dominance over yourself. (Report) Reply
