Parent Poem

Letter To Parents I'm A Failure

I believe that with me out of the way of their lives, better things could happen.
Not being in financial troubles, they would do better not having to support my needs and desires.

To Whom It My Concern

Published: September 2013

My heart continues to cry out!
My mind has over a hundred voices
I just want Everything to stop in the tracks
I wish not see Somebody or anybody suffer because of me.

I messed up your lives. You would've had somebody better.
Mommy you deserve a better child. Somebody that listens and
everything else you ever wanted. The only thing I have is the brains/smarts
You tried teaching me and guiding me down the right path.
I just didn't follow.
It's not you fault it's mine..

Daddy... You and I both know I am Daddy's girl.
I never showed you that I cared.
I tired avoiding you. I know deep inside how I feel.
I needed you to protect me from multiple things and still do.

I am tried of ruining other's lives with my mistakes... I shouldn't be here
this life shouldn't be mine. My life should not ruin yours. I am sorry but, I guess and believe that you do not need me anymore.

I love you guys!

Alexis, each line of this point hit me in the heart like a punch. I too have felt the same way for a long time...that without me in the way, without having to still support a bird that should have left the nest long ago, without having to deal with my financial, legal, and personal troubles...I feel that without all these things, my parents would be happier, maybe at 8 years old they wouldn't have gotten a divorce. One day I told my mom I was sorry for everything I had ever put her through, and she shared a quote with me..."Children are the source of my strength, frustration, happiness, insanity, sanity, irritability. They are the definition of unconditional love." The funny thing is that my father, when I apologized to him...said the exact same thing.
