The emancipation of Mimi.

The emancipation of Mimi.

A Poem by Mimi

Enjoy I guess..


I need you

I need someone, I don’t care who

I can’t do it

He’s throwing a fit

She’s yelling

We’re all fighting

All we do is shout

I need out

I’m stressed, I’m crying

I’m weak and dying

Jay, let me be

Irene, set me free

Please, I’m begging

I can’t take this screaming

I say set me free

But she ignores me

I need to leave, I can’t take being stressed

I think this is best

I must pull through

But it’s so damn hard to do

My thoughts run wild

Won’t someone help this poor child

I’m trying so much, I really am

But right now I don’t give a damn

He’s wasted again

I already know how this will end





Whenever I run away

No one bothers to ask where I stray

I never get a text or a call

It’s like they don’t care at all

Today’s the day that I’m set free

Today’s the emancipation of Mimi

Author's Note

My household does nothing but fight lately, and I felt like running away, so I asked Irene if I could be emancipated, and she just ignored me. Review and tell me what you think..

Dear Mimi,

You can still surprise me with the maturity of your poetry and insights. This is a wonderful poem, Mimi. I'm impressed. And I fully hope that your will achieve the emancipation that you are seeking. With your adult attitude and insights, I think you will. Go ahead. Go forward. I think you're ready. You can take control of your life and don't need to be bogged down by those around you. Just walk past them.

Best regards and high marks on this one,

This is quite a powerful piece. It all flows and connects well, greatly establishing a dark, scary, prison-like atmosphere, leading up to an enlightening sense of freedom.

I absolutely is so difficult at times all one wants at to run away ...hide but just let be...many times i yearn..absolutely need to be alone..but the trappings of society are such...we just can't be left alone even if we want to...
You are put it so well in words...i could never do it...

Poem is powerful and tell a scary story for a child to have to be in. I don't like fighting and loud discussions. I try my best to be peaceful. I could feel the frustration and desire to be free of the craziness. A excellent poem.
