See Me

A Poem by Chelsea
"

Just how I feel about my parents.

"

I wish that you weren’t blinded

By this role in life I play

I wish that you could see

The person that I am

 

These messages I try to send

You don't seem to see

Do I have to flash them in your face

Or will you some day notice

 

Some may think I'm bitchy

I’m just depressed and in the dumps

I’m not angry at those around me 

But the pain shows on my arms

 

I’m oblivious to the world

I’m so hurt I just stop caring

I believe that I'm a failure

Though I try to rise above

 

I fight my self inflicted ways

Because they are so wrong

I really don't hate everything

I only hate myself

 

I wish that you could see me

For who I am inside

I'm not a sight of horror

That you seem to think I am

I believe we all go through this with our parents from time to time. Remember, alot of people don't understand creative people. Could it be that they fear for your well being if you pursue things? They don't often understand because things have changed so dramatically since they were kids... Your poems are fantastic and I loved this. I hope things get better and no need to be depressed, they will come around eventually!!!! Chin up! :-D

Hard to get people to see who you are. Most people too busy with their own life. A like the feel and emotion of this poem. Sometime we must get in the way and tell the people we are alive and well. A excellent poem.

I too had problems with my parents when it came to cutting. Because I have such light skin my scars only last for three or four months. One time my parents asked to see my scars six months after I stopped and they don;t believe I was a cutter. Though it doesn't matter because I found help in other people (my pastor and grandparents). I hope you too will heal one day.

Depression can be a very dangerous thing that we experience in our life. I deal with depression in my life as well. I think that depression can stem from low self esteem, and often writers need an outlet to express their feelings. Your poetry is a way for you to get those emotions out on paper, and it's like talking to another person. I think it's one way that writers cope with not keeping everything bundled up inside. Your poem is very good, and it's quite easy to understand. The flow is very natural. My only regret is that isn't enough imagery within the poem. I found this interesting to read.

Take a step back from the situation and view it. It took me a long time to realize my parents were just sad confused people like me. They didn't hold the answers I was after, only I did. Your happiness isn't going to come from how others view you sweetie, it will come from you finding the comfort of you! Hope that makes sense?
