You Don'T Know - Poem by Mariana Zita

You don't know me so
stop pretending to

My life is hard so stop
pestering me with your
unnecessary yelling

I am almost at the edge
so stop pushing me closer

My heart is heavy so stop
adding weight to it

Stop telling me my wrongs
and start telling me my rights

My body shakes with fear so
stop frightening me

Stop hurting me and start
healing me

My head aches so stop
calling me names

Stop adding more bruises
to the ones i already have

My feet hurt so stop
pushing me down

Stop pushing me down
and start pulling me up

My body is hot with anger
so cool me down

Stop throwing me and start
catching me

My eyes are dry and swollen
from crying so stop making
me cry

Don't tell me i lie when I am
truthful

My legs are heavy from holding
myself up so put me on your
shoulders and tell me you love
me

Don't question me when I
change my style

My soul is breaking so stop
making me the cause of all
the trouble

so please stop

    WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE WOMEN IN THIS WORLD IF A PARENT DOES SOMETHING OR HURTS YOU IN SUCH A WAY................
    DO GIVE THEM THE RESPECT OF KNOWING THAT YOU ARE ABOT TO SPEND HALF YOUR ADULT LIFE GETTING OVER... OR TALKING ABOUT THE THINGS THEY DID PUT YOU THROUGH............ AS AN ADULT ITS TIME TO START HAVING SOME SELF RESPECT NO MATTER HOW HARD IT IS MOVE ON FORGET THEM AND HAVE SOME FUN...........THERE IS MOR IN THIS LIFE THEN OUR PARENTS CAN TAKE AWAY...........GOOD LUCK MARIA..

    Wisdom should be a subject taught in school...and, of course, forgotten when you pass the final test. Wisdom through experience that only life teaches? Not ever forgotten...you've written it here.xxElysabeth (Report) Reply
