I Don't Want To

Updated on June 12, 2014

You Can't Make Me

I know best

I don't think so

Why should I ?

Because I said so

Here comes trouble

Your not my boss

You listen to me that's the end of story


Why are you doing this ?

You are so mean

Everyone does it and when I try you start complaining

At least once month I hear you tell daddy the same thing

Just leave me alone

I am not in the mood

That's different

Listen to me

The answer is still no

Where did you get this attitude from ?

I keep nodding my head up and down like daddy

When he says he is buying a motor cycle

Over my dead body

Then I get a slap on the butt

When daddy does it to you

You say you want some of this

Why should I listen to you ?

When all my life I have followed you so far

All it does is get me in more trouble

Like the time I scratched all your lottery tickets

The same kind you and daddy buy all the time

You both say good luck

Win big

I have copied you to t

From the time when I wake up in the morning

I yawn without covering my mouth

That's rude

Why is it o.k. for you but not for me

I get dressed and leave my clothes laying on the floor

Pick up after yourself

I hear you tell daddy all the time is it so hard to put things back where they belong

Then you put his things away

I go to eat

You sound like a cow

Chew with your mouth closed

Don't talk while you eat

Even though at night daddy always sits down to eat and tells you all about his day

If cows are so bad why does daddy call you big as a cow

Then I repeat the F bomb followed by the H word

I am told never to say that

Even though I have heard you say it to daddy when you get so mad

Then daddy says work was a living hell

Then I say go to hell

I am wrong for saying it

Later in the day

I am in a bad mood

So I complain and yell back while we are in a store

You tell me to stop it

Then I continue even more

You tell me to cut the crap

When I did crap earlier you spanked me and told me big people don't do it anymore

Then I begin to protest and hold my ground

Just like you anddaddy when he slams the door and you throws things

I sit down

You grab me by the arm

I say the same words you are always yelling

Don't try that on me mister

I kick my feet to protest

Followed by a few loud screams

You tell me to stop it immediately

Just like you

When you lock your bedroom door late at night

I can hear you kick. moan and scream with daddy

I heard you say on the phone

if I eat too much I am going to get fat

Enoughs enough

I can't be like you anymore

I am really hungry

Maybe I will be myself and less like you

Now that's a good boy

If you finish all your food

You get some dessert

I will never understand adults

If they could only see themselves

Through my eyes

Maybe they wouldn't do what they do either

      Jodah I will give it a try.I am thinking also if I highlight the words of one person to make it easier to follow the conversation. Maybe I can turn it into a cartoon with captions. Well these ideas are all thoughts that pop in my head. I appreciate all your thoughts and suggestions . I even started reading about script writing. I just love the inner battle of two people and their struggle. Thanks so much. Squeezing in time makes my life exhausting but well worth it. Have a good day.

      Dream On, the best suggestion I can make is to use quotation marks at the start and end of each person's comment and put a space between them eg.

      "That's rude."

      "Why is it o.k. for you but not for me?

      I get dressed and leave my clothes laying on the floor."

      "Pick up after yourself."

      "I hear you tell daddy all the time is it so hard to put things back where they belong then you put his things away."

      I hope this helps.

      Gypsy Rose Lee I think it would be fun for awhile but who is going to make lunch, do all the chores , pay all the bills and best of all share all the greatest times of your life. Kids are too busy being kids to do anything else. Thank you so much for your input. I love to see everyone's view and direction.

      I think this crazy world is getting harder and harder for kids to understand and sometimes I wish I could step into a child's world and stay there.

      Jodah I have a tough time writing when it is a combination of two people talking.Trying to get the dialog of each persons thoughts out correctly. Any suggestions?Maybe you might know a better way to keep the flow of the story going. We all learn as we go. Since you are the first one to read my stoem story/poem and you can let me know where it got confusing? I did the best I could after rewriting it many times. Thank you for all your help , reading and comments.
