Feeling Valuable - Poem by Yvette Flores

Parents always tell their children that they're proud of them
I've only heard that once in my life
Im 15 and have only heard, 'im proud of you' once
I guess you could say that iu've only felt valuable one time
When i got good grades...
All i heard was, 'ok, keep it up'
I just gave a weary smile
I didnt feel as valuable as to when my mom told me she was proud of me
My dad...
Well he's never been apart of my life
I barley even call him my dad...
The only memories i have of him, aren't any decent ones
Im the oldest child, so im supposed to try to support my two siblings
Its hard for me to do that
Considering i dont have anyone supporting me...
