Thought of My Parents (no doubt)

Written for:  Poetics Aside 2018 November PAD Chapbook Challenge – Day 10
Write a teenage poem.

They insist that you are their
Enemy, opposing every word you utter,
Except when they need money. Funny how angry voices
Negotiate in softer, reasonable tones,
And we fall for it every time.
Growing constantly, changing appearance frequently, and
Ending up their own person with morals you hope
Reside in them as adults.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
