Broken PromiseA Poem by Chelsea
My parents promise= broken.
You cradled my infant self in your arms
Endeared by the miracle of birth; the birth of your daughter
But obviously I didn’t mean much
Your street life meant more
More than me! Your daughter!
More than being my parents
You were my knights in shining armour
You armour lost all shine; it’s crumpled in pieces
Your promise to be there,
But I never asked for this; you made the choice
You lost me and I lost you
Our lives no longer intertwine,
I can’t tell you my dreams
You’ll never know my sadness
You won’t be able to contribute any happiness to me
You can’t be in my life and I can’t be in your life
I don’t know you; you don’t know me
We are strangers; should have been a mighty team
Maybe one day our paths will cross,
But for now we live different lives
I’m growing up and becoming a young woman
Your just you, a failed specimen of a person.
