Home Isn't For Me

Home isn't for me I try my best to respect my parents but they don't treat
me right
My pops always yelling at me and quick to hit me
When I speak my mind
My mom always cussing me out telling me to get my lazy ass up and get a
job
But times are hard and it ain't easy to get a job
Home isn't for me because we’re never peaceful
My parents always arguing about money when they know every week
they're short
Sometimes I wish that my home was more peaceful
A place where I can lay down in peace without nobody in the house
fighting
23When I go over my friends’ houses I always get jealous
Because they and their parents always get along they never embarrass
them when they have company
They always encourage them to do better if they screw up it’s like them
and their parents connect all the time
Sometimes I wish that my parents was like that always let me speak my
mind and tell them how I feel
I know it’s kind of sad but I hate coming home after school or when I’m
leaving my friend's house
Because my home isn't peaceful it’s like I'm fighting demons everyday
Home isn't for me that’s why a lot of kids run away from home especially
the black ones
Our parents don't know what we go through at school, work or out there
in the real world
When we come home from our problems we aspect loving and caring
parents that has a happy home
If it’s like that maybe we all can get along and understand each other some
more
If there’s no love at home what makes you think I want to be at home
looking at how miserable ya are
24   
I pray to God every night hoping and believing that he turns my place into
a happy home

    Poignant write Tadon! It's unfortunate that most kids can relate to what you've penned, but the good thing is there is a limit of how long one has to live at home. With independence comes freedom. Well written poem!
