The Poetry Bar


dont even know when it started
forced to read when going to bed
usually kids will get read
a goodnight story instead

or at least thats what ive heard
i mean ive been on alert
since kindergarden up at 3
babys need sleep, shouldnt be

ive always been there alone
waiting for others to come
there was no calm in my home
i wished i couldve been gone

for years i wished myself dead
would never be born but that
was something you wouldnt get
you both are too ignorant

dont get me started on school
forcing me because of rules
you valued higher than me
you both, as parents, are fools

telling me things like “you can be
everything you wanna be”
but then the first chance i say some
you just said “this cannot be”

something like “that doesnt exist”
you just were too goddamn lazy
aggressive irrationally
and i just couldnt persist

how would i, i was a kid
if i asked a simple question
you always discarded it
put me in a world of deception

so now im incapable
of loving and so much more
wasted alot of potential
made my life miserable.

I started writing texts on 25th of September 2020 because i got My Heart broken and didnt know how to cope with My sadness.
