i was one who was a slave to my family. so i can relate. i may have not have been the best kid ever, but we do have our own lives as well. the poem itself wasnt to bad. topics did not change, and you explained yourself well. but i the flow was off in some areas. the 1st stanza was espcially good. not to shabby for an 8th grader ;-P
I agree with "ROSES" this poem is so completely true. I feel the exact ways ometimes, and I bet that many, many people feel this way as well. Parents don't seem to realize what it is like to be a "child" sometimes. I mean to say, a lot of parents thing that just because they are the so called parent they have the reight to treat you with disrespect. Well . . . that is not true, and they will have to realize that someday soon.
So true. So true. Almost all parents I think treat their kids like they are of lower importance than them or something. Well for me anyways, my parents could say "Because I'm the parent, that's why." And act like it's the final point of the arguement. I always reply "Well I'm the child." And they don't seem to know how to rebuttle. Anyways, pretty good write. It was nice how the beginning and the ending tied together with the "yes, I am the child." Good job.
