Credit (Poem)

You’re trying to take credit for my hard work,

I’m going unheard,

No one is hearing, “This is my hard work,”

I feel like I’m losing as I continue to get unheard,

I’m so frustrated to know that someone is getting credit for my work.


I hardly sleep as I work hard,

My body and my mind are tired,

How am I supposed to accept that someone is getting credit when I’m the one that worked hard?

She isn’t tired,

I’m the one that worked so hard.


I wish I knew what I’m supposed to do,

Yet all I could do is feel the stress build inside me,

All I could do is watch someone take credit for what I do,

She’s living without stress because of me.

It’s so unfair that someone is living an easier life because she’s taking credit for I do.


I guess for now I can only brainstorm,

Perhaps I’ll find a solution,

Perhaps I’ll find a way to prove that I’m the one that did the hard work after the brainstorm,

I just know that I’m not ready to give up on finding a solution,

Thus, I’ll continue to brainstorm.



Extremely Angry (Poem)

I’m angry,

I feel like a wild animal that is caged,

Extremely angry,

I feel like attacking because I don’t want to be caged,

It’s so hard to stop being angry.


She’s bigger,

Yet my anger doesn’t care,

It’s hard to care that she is bigger,

I’m so angry to care,

The nerve to try to cage me just because she’s bigger.


Unsure why life brings bigger people to bring hurt,

Does life want me to keep fighting people?

I’m so tired of getting hurt,

I’m so tired of arguing with people,

Thankfully, life eventually removes the people that only brings anger and hurt.

You’re Hurt (Poem)

Admit when you’re hurt,

Don’t hurt others to hide the hurt,

Hurting others won’t remove the hurt,

Hurting others won’t give you the comfort that you want when you’re hurt,

Hurting others means you’ll continue to hurt.


You don’t like when others hurt you,

Why hurt others if you don’t like it when it’s done to you?

What happens if this person gets comforted by someone else after getting hurt by you?

Who is there to comfort you?

After all, who wants to stay by your side and get hurt by you?


No one wants to get hurt,

Some might endure the pain temporarily,

Yet no one truly wants a forever hurt,

So, do you want a temporary hurt or a person that stays temporarily?

To let go of the hurt can sometimes mean that you’ll find that person that will choose forever instead of staying temporarily.

Her Insecurity (Poem)

I’m sad that your life is that way,

You’re my niece and nephew,

Your mother wants it that way,

I can’t help you even if you’re my niece and nephew,

I’m sorry that your life has to be that way.


I want the best for you,

Your mother never learned how to love herself,

Her insecurity is what’s doing this to you,

I don’t know if she’ll ever learn to love herself,

I wish she would learn to think about you.


Divorce (Poem)

I hear people get divorced,

I know that our love story can change,

People divorce when they are meant to get divorced,

A love story changes because it’s meant to change,

Being in love one minute doesn’t mean you won’t get divorced.


I fear the word “divorce,”

Thus, I constantly bring up the word that I’m afraid of,

I work on trying to remove the negative feeling that I associated with the word “divorce,”

Yet it still continues to be a word that I’m afraid of,

I fear it because the painful ending is what I’ve attached to the word “divorce.”


Yes, I’ve been through so many bad endings,

Yet no end ever helps you with another ending,

Someone always gets hurt with bad endings,

Usually, I’m the one that gets hurt the most with an ending,

Hopefully, our marriage is forever and not another relationship that is added to the bad endings.



Dreamed (Poem)

I dreamed of marriage,

I got depressed when a relationship didn’t turn into a marriage,

He didn’t dream of marriage,

I asked for marriage,

Our relationship turned into marriage.


Marriage has been hard for me,

Marriage hasn’t been hard for him,

I struggled because of me,

I didn’t struggle because of him,

It’s my own demons that made it hard for me.


He asks, “Why did we even get married?”

I don’t always know the right answer,

All I know is that deep down we were meant to be married,

We are what each other needs is the answer,

We are married because we want to be married.


The Good (Poem)

I don’t deserve this,

This is my destiny,

I didn’t want this,

This is my destiny,

I must learn to see the good in this.


There is light in this path,

I need to stop being blinded,

I must not learn to hate this path,

My negative thinking is what is going to keep me blinded,

I need to find a way to love this path.


So I’ll learn to listen and see the good,

Yes, there is good,

I’ll learn to zone out what isn’t good,

Yes, there is good,

Most of all, I’ll convince myself that this life is good.
