Anger Poem by Teens

This poem is about the emotional abuse I have went through with my mother and father. Most people think of abuse as physical but this kind of stuff is an example of emotional abuse. This kind of stuff causes teens like me to become very depressed.

I go through the same thing. I get straight A's, do all my chores, and try to be the best person I can be, yet there's always something to be yelled at for. I want to tell someone, but I love...

Please Make The Yelling Stop

no matter how well I do in school or how well I clean the house
still they aren't happy
from the time I walk in the door till the time I go to bed every night
the screaming never seems to stop
it used to be just from my mother
but now my father too
sometimes even my older brother
the one I considered my hero
it hurts...
they tell me I'm crazy, stupid, a mess up
I just want to be good enough for them
but it seems I never will be
they say they care and they say they love me
but I'm not blind, I can see the hate they have for me
I was a mistake, they didn't believe in abortion
so, here I am, the mistake child
in the dark I sit in my room and cry
day in and day out
their words and looks
slice into me deeper than any razor ever could
this has went on for years now,
when will it end??
sometimes I wonder what it would be like
if I just got up and left...
or if I ended it all for good..
or even if I called the police...
but I'm not strong enough to do any of that
I can't last any longer
these people are not my family
the people I see everyday are monsters
they don't love me, my family did
where did my family go, they are missing :(
all this yelling is really getting to me
it's breaking me down day by day
soon there will be nothing left
I just want to be left in silence..
please, make the yelling stop!

I go through the same thing. I get straight A's, do all my chores, and try to be the best person I can be, yet there's always something to be yelled at for. I want to tell someone, but I love my mom to much to do that. I couldn't do that. She's the only person I live with, if I told the police who would I live with it? It varies. It will be bad, and then it'll start to be good. But as soon as that happens it all goes downhill again. But hey, I'm 13. Only 4 more years or this bs before I can escape, right?

I have gone through the same thing and I still do - physical, mental and emotional abuse.
The thing is, I actually became suicidal at some point. I thought dying would end the misery, but hey, I'd rather suffer here for years than suffer for all eternity so I pushed it out of my mind.
Even when your world is falling apart, you can always talk to somebody, talk to God if you're a Christian and if not, you could always talk to a friend, tell them what you're going through, how you feel. Someday, I hope and I hope you have hope too, that the pain' will end.

I know how you feel my mom and stepdad physicaly, mental and emotionally abused me for a long time until I finally got to move in with my stepmom and dad. It will all work out. try praying about it even if your not Christian it will help to talk about it out loud.

I go through the same thing with my mom... even though she says she loves my and she cries and apologizes it's hard to believe that when she say stuff like: I waste peoples time or I sound dumb... I guess I know she loves me but it still makes me angry!!!

I go through the same thing with my family...sometimes I want to run away...sometimes I wish they would just be happy with me for a matter how good my grades can be or what I do its never enough for them to be proud of me. The only thing that holds me up is my bestfriend and my grandmother, you just need that one person you can trust and who can hold you up.

This used to happen between me and my mom ... it still goes on but not as bad since we went to counseling .... I still sit in my room and cry and sometimes scratch my arm until it hurts but now I can be happier than I was.
