Objects Over Emotions - Poem by Christina Sunrise
Parents have learned the easy way out
they give their child a toy
when they hear them shout.
Instead of comforting the child
and asking how they feel
they give them an object which will
calm their shrills.
Children learn their emotions are not
to be recognized,
so they grown up suppressing them
making them hide.
Even in school we are not taught to accept
hey, maybe we are mad for we didn't get...
didn't get the toy we wanted and Jimmy did
we have to say we are 'Sorry' even when
we don't 'feel' it as an honest kid.
We are then to feel bad for feeling mad,
and taught to always be 'nice'
even when it does sacrifice
how we feel deep inside.
Passive aggressive is what we learn
so that we never discern
what is really going on in our guts
we shut it out, then we feel we are nuts...
nuts for not recognizing we have a right
a right to feel a certain way
we need to stop judging ourself and say
every feeling is O.K.
