Let me go

Let me go

A Poem by Morgan A Lynch

 

 
You say I don’t care,
That I just look right through you

Can’t you see that I am trying to be the best I can
You want me to be someone I can not be
I keep getting pulled into different directions

I cant live up to your expectations
I will never be good enough for you
All ways in my ear saying it is not good enough


I am in the corner
Trying to see anything but the wall I am being pushed up against
Why can’t you see what you are doing to me?


Don’t you know I have looked up to you?
Tried to live my life like you wanted me to

But no more!
Oh no
No more

I am beginning to see
That you are choking me
Tearing me apart

I am to the point to were all I got is to push back
I am tired of you trying to live my life

I am in the corner
Trying to see anything but the wall I am being pushed up against
Why can’t you see what you are doing to me?

But no more!
Oh no
No more

I am beginning to see
That you are choking me
Tearing me apart

Family, relationships are suffocating..... people in general don't know how to let be. My friend you are so very talented you amaze me every day.

I think that this is very well written and everyone could relate to this poem although depending on their age and circumstances they would be saying these words to different people, a parent, a partner, a teacher , a boss..

I can relate to this. Exceptional poem. Loved you biography. I hate to have someone tell me how to write too. I write from my heart like you do. This is refreshing.

Oh, I know exactly how you feel in this poem. Good work.
I like this part:
"I am in the corner
Trying to see anything but the wall I am being pushed up against
Why can't you see what you are doing to me?"
Don't know why, but it speaks to me.

I'm not the type that likes to be closed in. I am a free spirit mainly. I would feel the same way here as you write. I like the repeatition of the verse here. This is very emotional and flows nicely with a strong feeling.

Way to speak out and take back the essence someone has stoled from you... it's tragic how we can lose ourselves without even knowing it... then to finally have the strength to say "I am me take it or leave it"... very empowering poem.
