Moving Out

Poem By Breanna Verkon

At the grocery store my mom and me
I tell her when Im seventeen Im free
She tells me its a mistake
And her heart breaks
I let her know I love her and its not her fault
She starts to walk away and I beg her to halt
You would do the same mom you know its true
I gave you your name what is there to prove?
Mom I cant deal with this like you can
Well you know Ill be there, Im your biggest fan
Thanks mom I love you, hope you understand

I look down at my little sister
I tell her I love her and ill miss her
Her tears fall as they become thicker
My heart melts and I feel sicker
You know ill visit babe, I wont leave forever
She says ill miss you alot, but its whatever
Her tears keep coming, so we hug and I start humming

Now im sitting in class
Thinking about my future affected by my past
I cant believe all the things that didnt last
My freedom is approaching fast
Im scared theres too much contrast
Living on my own seems too real
But does not change the way I feel
I know I can take this freedom and make it
Because my determination remains fit
The fire in my hopeful heart is lit
The past is simply what happened
My future is not yet at end
The future is my friend

Highschool Friendships

High school friendships rarely last
Eventually school becomes a blurry past
As we get caught up in our lives
Forget to be good husbands and wives

Great Father

Other than the times you have hit me
Other than making me feel like a nuisance
Other than calling me countless names
Other than treating me like a know nothing

Free From My Father

I have happiness in me
Soon I will be free
You will no longer restrict me
You will no longer control me

Hidden Under My Smile

Hidden under the smile on my face
There is a sad and lonely place
Where I dream of loves grace
And the end of this race


He punches the bag like its full of air
He doesn't stop, he doesn't dare
He shakes his hand, its only fair
He pushes the instructor, eyes in a glare
