this poem is about my life growing up as a kid

growin up my life was messedup

everyday sittin bak watchin my mom and dad gettindrugged up

they still cant put down thecup

i try 2 keep my headup

but so far i aint had noluck

yeah i admit its rough

and i was raised 2 betough

but dam enough is a nough

if you been threw as much as me ull no wat im talkin about

when u dont know who to love and who tohate

who is real and who isfake

every year wen i see mycake

i look at the candles and my wish neverchange

cuz my life is still thesame

and i dont even kno who toblame

is it the dad that left me like he didnt care?

or is it the mom who raised me on herown

workin 2 jobs just to bring some food home?

wen she was at work i was homealone

all night me just sittin on myphone

actin lik nuthin that happened in my past affected me but really my heart is as hard asstone

wen i was lil my dad wuld promise to pick me up to go get me a ice creamcone

all night i sat up by thephone

he never came or never called

so my mom took me and got me one but it wasnt thesame

all she kept sayin is he should be inshame

but no words culd help mypain

and threw all these years my heart still feel thesame

thats why i treat my life like agame

after 15 years of paini still didnt learn athang

so i continue to treat life the same as it treats me

behind my smile is nuthin butshame

sumthin i wish i wulda overcame

now imtryna blow out theflame

but everything jus keeps comin bak thesame

and i dont never let no 1 see mefrowncuz they jus take advantage of u lik u aclown

wen my mom and dad screamin and fightin my head justpounds

i just wish after 15 years of da same shit my life culd jus finally settledown

i jus stay in my room and dont make asound

but one day ima stand up and say fuck the world realLOUD

this is good way to show your temper and pain in words.. rather than practically. because sympathy never heal the pain. Keep writing. KMU.. I am hear you to read each and every writing dear... I am not good in rythm. but you did awesome in this poem.. Rhythm.
