RESENTMENT

YOU'RE ALL I'VE EVER KNOWN
I'VE NEVER BEEN GIVEN THE CHANCE TO BE INDEPENDENT
YOU MADE ME THIS WAY
YOUR CREATION...LIKE A PUPPET
YOU FORCED ME TO LEAN ON YOU
DO YOU FEEL POWERFUL
HAVING SO MUCH CONTROL
DO YOU FEEL BETTER ABOUT YOURSELF
BELITTLING ME
NOT BELIEVING IN ME
I HATE THAT YOUR SUCH A REALIST
YOU HAVE NO FAITH
NO VISION
NO SENSE OF LIFE
GOING THROUGH EACH DAY AS IF NOTHING IS SPECIAL
NO MIRACLES
NO MAGIC
I HATE HOW YOU HOLD ME BACK
POSSIBLY INTIMIDATED BY MY HIDDEN POTENTIAL
THE FIRE IN MY EYES
IT SCREAMS INDEPENDENCE
AND STRENGTH
IF I HAVE THE POWER I FEEL
THE CONFIDENCE..
WHY AM I STILL HERE
STILL STUCK
ITS LIKE QUICKSAND
IT DOESNT MATTER HOW STRONG I AM
WITH HOW MUCH FORCE I PUSH OR PULL
IT JUST KEEPS ME DOWN
FILLING MY LUNGS
COLLAPSING MY AIR WAYS
DULLING MY SENSES
BLINDING ME TO EVERYTHING THAT COULD BE
SILENCING THE "YOU CAN DO IT"
MUTING THE "I BELIEVE IN ME"
UNTIL FINALLY I GIVE UP
FORFEIT
SURRENDER
AND FOR TAKING AWAY MY CONFIDENCE AND SELF ESTEEM
I RESENT YOU

    Hello, Valerie. Warm welcome, I hope you're here to stay. I think your poetry is powerful, like a manifesto, very visceral and assertive..

    HI, Valerie, this is very sad having someone who cares about you, making you feel like this, He does not deserve an ounce from you, i hope you are now the independent person you once were before. enjoyed, take care~*~SKAT

    ooo...wow...once again...the man that took it all from me...the real smiles, and the meaning of real love... what an a$$, no wonder I resent him so much... sadly he is the father of kids.... But, unlike him I moved on to a better relation. My now fiance, is a good and great guy... I don't know how low my confidence is... It can get tacky, once someone blows the self confidence right out of the water.... Valerie, your poem can hit one with guilt. loving and enjoying your poems...xox~Linda

    Massive & intense. Yet, despite the message that your self-worth was taken, just declaring that you know it was is the 1st step into doing something about it. Fantastic piece!
