Best Joy Bohland Poems

+ Fav Poet


You were the hugs
And all the love 
You said I’d ever need

Now that I’ll be gone
You tell me I’m wrong
And you’ll pull the rug out 
From under me

Make me feel my worth
Depends upon your blessing

Always telling us 
We can fly, fly, fly away
Shoot for the sky
But when we try, try, try
Its never good enough
Its not their way

I might just be young, yeah
And yeah they just might be right…

They put us in chains
Afraid we’ll change 
In ways they never could

They put us in chains
Before we can even try.

Now I gotta front
Act like I know what
I’m doing 
Even when I don’t
Much more than I do
And they love to
call it attitude	 

Adults tying the rope 
Around our necks 
So we don’t hang ourselves
