Caged EMOTIONS, set free
This poem is based on my present life . I feel a relief just to write it i am sure that there are many others like me who endure verbal abuse from time to time.
Can I really express the way I feel these caged emotions inside me is far to real.when my life seems to lose its meaning and things just comes reeling and then I lost all my feelings.When I feel to drop love and take up hate. Sometimes it feels as though hell has opened up her gate and Satan gets in my life and tries to demonstrate.
I thought I was doing my duty i moved in with you to help you cope with your now frustrating life of this stroke that almost crippled you .You've grown old and you had done lots for me. Now I thought was my turn to repay you, but we surely dont agree, cruel words are being hurled at me. They echo through the walls and frighten me.
Reproaches of what you've done for me pierces me like arrows, I feel helplessly , sometimes I feel to cry or perhaps maybe curl up and die.My heart just keeps crying out why why why! .
No one else really care or have time with you but me. Then why can't we agree and when will you stop verbally abusing me? You're eighty years old now and I am only twenty four. I've got alot of responsibilities then why do you further cast this burden upon me.
People see me and think that I am so happy and free, not knowing I cage all these emotions inside of me. Right now I am setting them free, I've tried with you grandma and even though I haven't done my best. I can still put all your love ones to the test.
Do they know how I feel? Do they hear the hurtful things you say to me?rotten words that could shatter any soul.I've given my life to the Lord at such a tender age, I try to live a pleasing life to Him for He alone careth for me.Instead of encouraging me in the right path, over the years you've only discouraged me. Why oh why do you do this to me?
I feel like I've put up with enough of this and I won't let you finish ruin my emotions.I've washed my hands thoroughly, and I really don't care what the others will have to say about me. All my caged emotions are being set free
