Mess Up - a Poem

Updated on October 23, 2012
Don't let evil mess you up. Have the courage to face it and defend yourself.

Part of growing is messing up.

You mess up your face with Gerber. You mess your diaper. You mess your pretty clothes with food. You mess up your toys; you think they’re no good. You mess up your closet. You mess up your mom’s too wanting her corset. You mess up your teeth with sweets. You mess your pretty sheets. You mess up your bedroom over and over. You mess up your knees each fall from your bike and your forehead when you duck for cover. You mess up coming to school on time. You mess up your mom’s day with the principal blaming her for your lateness, and whine! You mess up with honesty your parents taught you because the principal caught you lying; isn’t it a crime? You are grounded and allowance cut in half. You mess up honesty the second time because you stole money from your mom’s craft. You mess up your math grades, they are all red. You cleaned up that mess and you graduated.

Then, your blooming self begins to fall in love unconditionally...

Your young loves mess up your heart emotionally, but you remained wise, unblind; you didn’t mess up your mind. You moved on, entered the stage of marriage and have kids. Your rules are messed up of all the rids- "get rid of this, get rid of that"; "don't do this, don't do that". You find a job, you’re good at it and you work hard, but your friends mess up your job. Now, your life is messed up, like a dirty swab. You mess up marriage. You mess up trust and courage. You mess up with your own feelings. You find new love and hope no endings. You think he is being naught. You mess up your thoughts. You mess up communication and shut down. He makes four tries to patch things up, but you mess up a nice gesture and rather frown. So then, you mess up your sleep and sleep in your daughter’s bedroom for 3 nights. You say you’re trying not to mess up with sweet love, but you mess up with fights. You, tantrum you. You, stubborn you. You mess up. You mess up.

"What a day!" you exclaimed, your mood is messed up again.

Because of a promise made to you and that promise never came true. You swear you’ll finish it yourself in your own ways. You are mad, so you mess up your face. You sing looking at your messed up face in the mirror listening to rock ‘n’ roll. You don’t want to mess up with your 'already-messed-up-head', so you yourself console. You turn your computer on and the Internet is messing up good. You get p****d you can’t Facebook nor Hub; it’s messing up your mood. Then and now, the wireless signal is back, Facebook is open, YouTube is on and…you are writing on HubPages, “Mess Up” is the topic and here you are reading it…so remember, don’t mess up, you twit.

I have to finish a job that's unfinished through someone's promise.

Painting my vanity---Because of a promise made to me that he'd work on my vanity and that promise wasn't fulfilled. I swear I’ll finish it myself in my own ways. I am mad, so I mess up my face...

      Very creative! Sadly, I too fell into the trap. I should have seen that end coming. But I didn't! Congratulations.

      I love this....we all learn through messing up and the mistakes we make. Like it or lump it, it's the only way to move forward, because we never know unless we try!! Coffeeginnmyrice, and excellent reminder, which deserves votes up and away.

      Hi midget! You always find more meaning to something, I am very appreciative of your thoughts. It is indeed through our mess and mistakes, and in the mistakes of others that we learn. If there is something that I need to know, it is better to know it ahead than committing a mistake later because I wasn't informed so, but then it is too late to fix the problem. Sometimes, this works better for us. This is common in a workplace where and when there is no proper communication from the superior to staff, and the latter gets the questioning and coaching where it could have been addressed before hand, then all else could have been avoided.

      Thank you again, midget!

      Voted Way Up, such a clever write here. Yes, we are all really messed up for sure, and that is why we need our Savior. He is the only one who loves all of us messed up people. I can relate to having to wind up doing stuff yourself, as how else will it ever get done? That is such a cute photo of your beautiful messed up face! I just love to read your writing, as it is so refreshingly unique, like you dear one. In His Love, Faith Reaper

      Dear Faith Reaper,

      Truly in God we put our trust to help us up from getting messed up. That is why He IS our SAVIOUR and we need Him, thank you for your beautiful thoughts! He is our supporter, our very best cheerer and admirer. You are a good woman and a good friend, Faith Reaper, you always put GOD next to you.

      My ma used to remind us (me, my brothers and my little sister) to always include our guardian angel and infant Jesus (the Sto. Nino) in our daily activities. That we talk to them and say "good morning, how are you?", "come eat with me", "come play with me", "please keep me safe", "cross the street with me", "please don't make me fall", "thank you..." and so on.

      I did paint on my face to cheer myself up thinking to think positive of what I have learned from another hubber. I had some music blasting in the garage to keep me company. When my girls saw me working in there looking like a dork, they laughed, sent their friends quick text messages of me and said, "Mom, what is wrong with you?"

      Thank you so much Faith Reaper! It makes me happy to have you around commenting on my hubs! Love always ~Tess
