Please Just Listen

It hurts me to see you like this
On the floor coughing up blood
Why do this to yourself…?
Why choose this awful road…?
This path only leads to damnation
Please can’t you see that you’re dying!
Every night that you don’t come home… 
Mom is upstairs crying…
You’re ruining your life, your future
With all these… these drugs you take
Don’t you see the pain you’re causing?
Please stop this insanity, for Mom’s sake
Can’t you see what you’ve done to mom?
She now hardly ever smiles
Always afraid that you won’t come home
And like me, she’s afraid you’ll die!!!
Get your head out of your ass…
And look at this world around you
It’s not all a big joke, like you think it is!
Look at what you’re putting us through…
We can’t bear to see you destroy yourself!
We worry…. For God’s Sake we care!!!
Why ruin what could be…
Why put yourself through this nightmare??
Aren’t you even aware…
Of what you’re doing
How much you hurt yourself
How your life you continue to ruin!!!
Please listen to me… please just hear me out!!!
We love you, and we don’t want you to die!!!
We want you in our life for years to come…
We are not ready to say goodbye!

    Hello Felipe.Firstly I think as a poem this is very good.It reads well and your words flow.It also has strength.If the content is true of your life then it must have been very painful to write.If not, then you have great empathy.Although desperate and sad I liked this very much.Love June(Sylvia)
