Abandonment Poem by Teens

Mother Not Acknowledging Her Daughter

I am 16 years old, living in a household that seems of so perfect, but don't let your eyes fool you. I hear kids complain every day about having strict parents. I almost wish I did. I'd like to at least get a second glance from my mother. A little acknowledgement from the person I try so hard for, but it never comes.

Just One Question

©

Published: September 2017

Don't let it fool you.
This smile isn't the real me.
I don't understand why you don't care.
I was once everything you wanted me to be.
As I grew older,
I noticed your interest started to slip away.
I know I was once your baby,
But I don't know what I am today.
When things started to get tough,
You simply turned your cheek.
I never realized before
That this may be why I'm secretly weak.
I needed your support
So I could grow up strong.
But when something happened,
You simply told me I was wrong.
Although I'm not sure if it's the same,
I love you with all my heart.
I don't know what it does to you,
But it kills me when we're apart.
I've never tried so hard
For anyone else in my life.
If you don't accept me,
I'll keep my head down and take it with pride.
When I really need you,
You seem to be gone.
What hurts the most
Is that you're always here at home.
I don't know what to say.
I don't want to be done.
But just one question:
Do you love me, Mom?
