A Poem by Jenny-Jen-Jen

A poem, meant to be read in a slam-poetry way. The reasons why I feel Jaded.





Don't worry, I hear you.


Every roll of your eyes that you don't think I see.

Every sigh, as I walk in a room.

Your jokes.

Everytime you counter my 'I love you' with...



Don't worry, I hear you.


What you tell all your friends...

How stupid I must be.

How I'll never measure up to you.

And I can't draw.

And I can't write.

And it's stupid to waste my time.


Don't worry, I hear you.


Every laugh, when I make a mistake.

Every 'nice going' when I don't know how to fix it.

And anyone can do community college.

And it's nothing.

And I'm nothing.


Don't worry, I hear you.


When I can't, sometimes wont, get you what you want.

What a b***h I must be.

How I only think of myself...

And I'm wrong.

And you're right.

And you'd be better off without me.


Don't worry, I hear you.


How I don't belong in this family.

And how much hate...

And how you'd rather see me...

Every time.

Every word.

Thought and withheld.

But mostly spoken.


Don't worry, I hear you.

Wow, I love it :)

I think it's really strong and the message you're conveying is easily found. Loved all the techniques you've used, can't see how it can be made better. But if you do edit and it ends up twice as good as this let me know how you done it lol. :)

Favorite list XD

Death is Peaceful. Life is Harder. I base my writing upon what comes to mind, what I'm going through, and true feelings. I'm opinionated, and sometimes you'll see that shine through the cracks of m.. more..
