Feelings Poem by Teens

Poem About Being Free From Parents

I wrote this poem because my whole life I've never been free. But now I'm moving on. I'm gonna be free from them. It's been hard all my life, but my teen years are beginning to look brighter!

I can relate to this poem because my parents think I can't make my own decisions but I can! they're conquering my life and I'm afraid it'll be over before I can be free.

Let Me Grow Up

©

Published: April 2008

You can't make decisions
You can't be right
You can't grow up
You're too dumb to fight
I know what's best
I know it all
Mom and Dad
Just hit the wall

I can choose my life
I choose who
I want to be

Mom and Dad
say I'm not right
Mom and Dad say I can't fight
Mom and Dad show me the worst
Mom and Dad made me burst
Mom and Dad ruined my life
I'm going to show them
how to fight.

Mom and Dad
I want you to
let me grow up
let me be free

Mom and Dad
I will show you
I'm not a mistake
I will show you I'm on the edge
Mom and Dad know I made mistakes
Mom and Dad can't take the pain.

I will show them
I am free
I am forever me!
Mom and Dad
I'm sorry to say
but I have to moved on
now I am me
