Why I am fighting for your attention

Why I am looking for your consideration

I need you in my life, but why? 

I want you to feel better. 

Mommy. Why? 

Why are you not listening when I want your attention, your consideration, your admiration.

Why do I care, when you do not care. 

It is not fair 

Mommy. Why? 

Why are you not here for me, I need you in my life. 

Do not worry though, my daddy's here. 

Guide that inspired this poem: 



This is interesting. Sometimes I feel the same way, I wonder what is going through my moms head sometimes and wonder if I am the problem and if I did something wrong. People have a mind of their own and you always wonder if your the problem and you want to stay strong and make it through it and hoping things get better.
