Well, i LOVED that poem. i'm a 13 year old girl, i live in Dallas, Texas. and i TOTALLY feel that way with my parent. like they just DON'T understand. although they always SEEM to b right. that's what bugs me. but the reason they'r alway right is cuz they've been there. they were teenagers JUST like us. so we got to understand it. well anyway. i LOVE ur poem.

This poem shows exactly how so many teens feel! And its so true your parents tell you not to raise your voice or give you attitude but half the time you dont even know you are doing it!
Char
Ok! yeah that is tottaly how i feel with my parents. I hat it, they tell me i'm old enough to make my own decitions but they still make them all for me. It drives me crazy. I cant take it when they do that to me, it's like life is one big contradiction.
kk
so true this discribes eveything i feel
Serena

So she made a mistake and is now taking it out on me. and trying to live her life through me. So great poem and I would like to read more of your poems so keep me posted.

Direct and to the point. But as a parent myself, we're trying to protect you best we can till you get out on your own. Look at the bright side of things, and realize your parents love you. Smile!

Hollie

alysia
this is such a very true poem i know how you feel my parents always want me to stay home and never have any fun they always make choices for me about my future and what i am going to do with it i just want to tell them to shut up sometimes dont worry though i try not to i just keep thinking soon i'll be 18
Cassie
I agree,people dont think that teens can make decisions,and if there rong its like i told you so well how do you think you get better,you learn from your mistakes . theres no such thing as perfect in this world. GREAT POEM!
Sara Beth
I Love This Poem. I Always Feel As If I Do What I Want To My Parents Will Say No Because They Could Never Do It. I Hate When They Do It Sooo Much! And Have You Noticed That Whenever You Try To Say Something So Nice And Want A Nice Answer Back They Yell At You And In Order To Let Them Know That You Didn't Mean It They Yell At You For Raising Your Voice? And When The Fight Or Arguement Is Over Its Always The Kid's Fault?!?! Or Whatever You Do Is Never Good Enough? I Give This Poem A 5+!
Natalie
I like this poem because it is true about how others always choose things for you as a teenager. You don't get to choose where you live (until old enough to leave home), how much money you get, how late you can stay out, when your old enough to think for yourself.
rai
diz poem touch me a lot it describes my self!
Naomi
Thank you very much for writing this poem. It expressed fully how I feel every day.
Elizabeth
wow this poem is awesome its exactly how every teenager feels about their parents. i personally have felt this way many times they say they trust you to make the right decision but as soon as you have the decision to make they make it for you or take away your chance of making the decision.

When I read this poem it made me think of my old boyfriend who was so controlling ,but think god I got out of that relationship. This poem is basically telling about a girl who is being controlled by someone,from her mom to her boyfriend she is being controlled.

I loved this work. I cried when I read it. It touched me so much because of all the crap I'm going through right now. For the past 2 years of my life , everything has been like a summary of your poem. Every one suddenly betrays me and it takes the fullest nerve out of my mind and makes me explode. Thanks for finally making people realize how it feels!

SaltyTears
I feel so similar, it touches me deep inside. If your words would have wings I would like them to fly arround to world. Because the message they carry is more valuebal to mankind then all of the worlds gold together.
azn
I can relate.
Gerry
its really fantastic
Theresa
i liked this poem b/c it was written about a subject that i, like many other teenagers, could relate to. i know we all must have felt this way at one point in our lives but the poem made me really realize it.
