The Future! - Poem by Becky Ginn

Is it just me, or do your parents always go on about your future?
I don't see why, It's my future. Not theirs!
They're always like, 'Whatever you do now will reflect in the future'.
I guess it's true but they don't let us learn from our own mistakes.
We have to learn from theirs.

My dad is the worst, everything i do is his business.
It's like, if i get one bad grade on a report he goes all out
Starts saying that there is always room for improvement.
It's not like i don't already know that
He tries to get a perfect life through me

My mum just lets me get on with life
She isn't bothered as long as I try hard.
She lets me learn from my mistakes, as long as i do actually learn.
I know she is always there to catch me when or if I fall!
Mum rocks.

So just remember everyone......
Learn from your own mistakes
Do what you wanna do
Live your life to the full
Try your hardest and....
Ignore your parents! ! ! ! ! ! ! !

That way life should be great! !

    Some Indians would say, you chose them! ! You're in this together, girl! Tell it to them straight and maybe they'll do the same for you. (Report) Reply

    It's not just you Becky, when I was a teenager I could see alot of the faults in my parents also. Like you I tried to ignore them, but sometimes even you can be helpfull to them by pointing out their faults. they may thank you for doing so. (Report) Reply
