Goodbye, Mama

Poetry By: Ikky2000
Young adult

This poem is very emotional and sad. I thought a lot about people in my life, my close friends and my family. There are some darker sides to this poem as well as heart warming ones. I wrote it last night, truly from my heart, so please don't bother with corrections. I know this poem could be better, the flow might be kinda off and stuff, but I don't intend on changing a word. Enjoy darlings xoxo

Goodbye, Mama

Mama, Ryan was making fun of me and bullying me today,

so I punched him, however then it happened again, but with Ray.

The teachers at school excluded me,

it wasn't my fault though, they just can't see.

Mama, I'm never going back to school now,

because even with Ellie, I had a huge row.

I promise mama, it wasn't my fault,

everything always seems so bitter, almost like salt.

I'm going to try and be a better person from now on,

but I might not be here anymore, mama, I might be gone.

I really want you to know this one thing,

I never ever took that gift off, that ring.

I promised you I would wear it everywhere I go,

and even in P.E when they say 'take it off' I always said 'no'.

Because mama, I love that silver ring you gave,

I will forever keep it with me, all safe.

Sometimes I sit for hours and think about my life,

I really wish that my escape didn't have to be a knife.

Mama, I'm scared you'll hate me if you knew,

so that's why I didn't say sooner, why I didn't tell you.

But I am going to tell you now, and I hope you understand why,

at school everything is always so crap, mama, they all think I lie.

But I am being purely and truly honest, right from my heart...

do you remember Jacob, mama, the boy who stabbed me with a dart?

That's the way I like to call it...

because he stabbed my heart, mama,

like he was playing darts.

I never forgot the way he cheated on me with her,

I wish I could go back in time and change what we were.

But I guess I've learnt it the hard way,

and now in a few minutes, my bed is where I'll lay.

Thank you so much, mama, for all you have done,

writing this poem for you was everything but fun.

So now it's goodbye from me to you,

and I hope you remember that I love you, I really do.
