Graduation

You’re gonna miss me when I’m gone.

True. Those are the lyrics to a song, but let’s be real here for a moment.

You know you need me, just flat out admit it.

I’m tired, you’re tired, just forfeit.

 

I’ve had enough of your games, and lies, and distractions.

I’m going to take the fall for my own actions, and tell you that I’m done with all of your shit.

Your put downs, your criticism, all of it.

 

You like to play games huh? Well, here’s a one for you.

When I’m gone and living my life, what does that leave you to do?

Be sad, and alone, wishing there was a way

to go back to the past, if only I had the time of day

 

You’ve had your chance, I'm telling you now I’m through

How many times did I cry, how many times was it because of you

You’re not helping me by hurting me, you’re not making me stronger

Maybe if you smart for a while, you would know it’s wronger

To criticize your own kid, for every little thing they did

Instead of caring and loving them, because they did their own thing

 

You think you’re some kind of fucking angel, who's got it all figured out

Oh i wish you knew, yes if only you knew more about

All the things that make me, me

Yes, if only you knew, i think you would’ve cared to see

How far I’ve gotten, it’s no thanks to you

If you’ve forgotten, I'll tell ya. It’s from all the chances you blew

 

So goodbye parents, goodbye stupid rules

It’s my time to go, it’s my time to school you fools

Next time you see me around, please don’t make a sound

Cuz if you do, you’re gonna wish you didn’t when I leave you on the ground

How’s that? Sound fair to you?

 

This poem is about: 
Me
