The Best Parents Ever

The Best Parents Ever

A Poem by Nicholas Duboe

Found this poem I wrote awhile back in my email drafts hahaha. I hope you like it and can relate.


The best parents aren't perfect,

They screw up again and again,

And after all the disappointments,

You wonder if it'll ever end.


You cry alone in your room at night,

You just want them to be better,

But the best parents don't hear your cries,

Not then and no not ever.


Who needs food anyways?

Why do bill collectors call?

The best parents don't pay for stuff,

They don't pay anything at all.


So you move around six times a year,

You're always the new kid in class,

The best parents don't care for this,

Who cares if you even pass?


But you grew up, up and away from them,

You grew so strong and so clever,

A better person in the end because

You had the best parents ever.
