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

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!
