This is my first poem post... i'm sorta scared, but i'm going with the flow and putting down one of my very first poems... hope it's not too bad.

I Was Too Young

I've seen you get so mad,
Get so utterly sad
Never liked it when you cried,
And hated you when you lied

But it seemed like you needed me more than I needed you
I was too young to know that I was growing up too soon
I just assumed we were a tight family,
But then I realized that I was missing a daddy
That's when I knew,
That I had to be strong just for you

You always tried to put the past behind,
Would smoke in your room all the time
Every night before I went to bed,
I could hear those scissors cutting away in my head
I was just a little one,
I never knew what you might have done

I've grown up now,
And studied you like peaking through a window
You're just as frail as you were before,
And perhaps even more
Each time you try to bring me down
I just remember when I was young and how I was there for you, when dad wasn't around
I don't want that responsibility anymore,
I don't want to relive the past I've hid before
Don't need to walk through the forest
When there's no trees

In a little way, I'm just like you
Won't take anything for granted and managed to always pull it through
When you were never around,
I always worried about you and stayed up waiting for you to be found
In the night you would crawl beside me in my bed,
Whisper in my ear about the day you've already had
Sometimes you would even cry and be so miserable,
And leave the room distraught and full of sorrow
I would stay up all night until I heard you finally go to sleep,
I was so young to be worried about you deep
I was too little to face the things you couldn't do
I was too young to know what you were going through
But I felt the pain enforced upon you

I was just a kid when I knew my destiny
I was still watching cartoons, when I knew
I had to grow up fast to help my mommy
Because I had a missing daddy
From that day on I've always felt so sorry
For myself, my brother and my mommy
We suffered as one small family
Someday I'll make it up to her

Nou Need make up for Nothing
You Need Not Bear Responsibilties
Never Your Own

Nor Apolgize
For Who You Are
Or Words Only Your Edifice
Taught Worries are not Enough

Your words are BellsReal
Sounding through the NightSoLong
Seeking OneEverlastingDawn
Which Awaits You

Pull the CurtainsTimeAside
This is The MomentYouAreAlive
Breathe Deep The DawnLifeSpringsForth
Know You Have Done ALL And SoMuchMore

Allow Peace
A Foothold Within
Life is Waiting to Begin

This work indicates the Cathartic way
Giving In May Be The Call
You Hear
Life Hears You Knows You Will Lead You On

The Song That Is Soul
It Reaches Defiant
Giving It In And Given
Calling All Souls Rise

A very open and honest piece, well voiced. I hope to read more of your work.

With the word, I am mighty, with the pen I am free..

This was good it made me cry, I still am.  I remember what it was like for me and growing up too soon and having to be there for my mommy, not because my dad was gone, but because he wouldnt leave.
