Poem a Day – Day 12

Below is my feeble attempt at the Day 12 prompt. “Write a poem consisting entirely of things you’d like to say, but never would, to a parent, lover, sibling, child, teacher, roommate, best friend, mayor, president, corporate CEO, etc.” Honesty is the best policy, after all, so get it off your chest”



You never came to wipe my tears.

You never rose to calm my fears.

You never tried to give me cheer.

You never even called me dear.

You never tried help me see

who it was that I might be

when I was young to find the key

to what I might have been.
