I'm Right Here
~**~
 
You say forgive him…
But I had to survive him without your help…
And you don’t give me the same undying forgiveness…
I know you don't want to hear it...
But these things need to be said and heard...
 
I think my friends believe in me more than you do…
You look at me like I’m the most horrible kid…
Like there’s something wrong with me…
But you probably wouldn’t believe me…
If I told you that other people show me more respect than you do…
You probably wouldn’t believe me…
If I told you I'm more than what you think you see…
You probably wouldn’t believe me…
If I told you how your disapproving looks make me feel…
You probably wouldn’t believe me…
If I told you others see how great I am…
And you just get what you think you see…
 
You’re the only parents I’ve known…
I know you did your best...
And that the situation with my brother was complicated...
But sometimes you make me feel so horrible…
When you look at me and don't see me...
When you hear me and don't even listen...

Where were you…?
When bro did those things…?
Where were you…?
When I told you I was hurting…?
Where were you…?
When I told you I was crying…?

You say you were there…
And I cried so loud…
I would try to tell you constantly...
But you never heard a tear…
And when you did…
You didn’t do a thing to help me…
You never listened…
So I fought for myself…
I had to learn to survive my brother all on my own…

You were there…
But I had to give up on you to fight for me…
I had to fight for myself…

And now you finally see the pain I’ve been hiding and ask me why…?
And I just look at you and ask…
“How can you ask such a thing…
When you’re looking right at me…?”
 
I'm right here in front of you...
And you still don't see me...
You still don't hear me...

Author's Notes:
Hopfully this poem is more clearer now than I wrote it the first time...I'm not saying they're bad parents...My "parents" [aunts and uncle] did their best...But we're finally patching up some stuff that's long over due...I'm finally explaining it to them little by little, word for word...And hopefully they'll listen this time...
 
Just family issues long over due for closure...
 
My childhood was more dangerous than I make it sound in Little Ellie...My brother has some serious anger issues...And this poem isn't just about the issues in my family or just my brother...There's actually more to it than it appears...

This was a cry out and one that was perfection. You said what was in your heart. Held nothing back. Brought forth what words needed to be said, not caring about rhyme, the flow, anything. That is what makes this so special. It is felt by me because you felt it as it was put on this paper.

 

Bravo to this.
