Poem About A Child's Emotions After Divorce

My parents divorced when I was 5 and are constantly talking bad about each other. Neither one listens to me when I try to talk to them. I feel as if they have both abandoned me, choosing to talk about someone they despise over listening to me.

Don't You Want Me?


Published by Family Friend Poems October 2013 with permission of the Author.

Daddy says he loves me, but he doesn't really mean it
Mommy says she cares, but I'm not dumb enough to believe it
They both just want the money that comes with the child
Don't you want me?

Daddy says mom's lying that she doesn't really want me
Mommy says she knows the truth that dad doesn't want me
I know it's true, but it hurts to know that I'm not wanted
Don't you want me?

I'm your own flesh and blood and daughter too
Why do you ignore me when I love both of you
I give you presents of love, but you both decline
Please, can't you listen to what's on my mind

I'm alone and unwanted
Uncared for unloved

But no one can hear me, not even my friends
They still believe I'll be happy till the end
