The Unfinished Girl - Poem by Jillian crawford

lets trade places
you and me
so through my eyes
you can see
this hell
they call home
rising up a syndrome
locked in my room
all day long
not knowing what i did wrong
to scarred to step outside
hoding back tears
just red eyed
the only friends
that i got
is a gerbil
is a bird that sqwaks alot
failing high school
a jobless girl
a future i though i had
starts to twirl
and my biological family
far away
if i get close
its me they’ll slay
begging my ant to let me live with her
anger, disgust and annoyance i will stir
so im stuck
as you now know
waiting and watching
my problems grow
the soul i once had is rotting away
and GOD is the one i must betray
thank you for trying your best for me
but my life is gone as you can see
i love you
and it will never dropp
my love for all of you
will never ever stop.

    You poor kid, with junkies for parents you sure had a shit start, but you can walk away from that. You have intelligence and verbal skills, use them. Good luck, Jerry (Report) Reply

    Nice poetry. :)
    but betraying God will only screw u over even more.
    don't ever lose faith. Yes, He gives us trials, but even if u can't c it, there's always a reason for the trials He gives.

    Keep writing if time permits, and God Bless. ;)
