What Was Really Happenin' To You...

by Ladykelshan

Age Group: Adult

Actually the title of this particular poem is :
What Really Happened To You, During High School!

Maybe you weren't all whom you wanted to be..
Maybe nobody really knew or could see that
your life was totally unravelling around you...
That your life was really quite askew...

Maybe you thought that you were "up there",
along with the rest, without any cares..
That you could always, always "hold your own",
stand tall, be strong, be all alone.

Now, years later, you share your life, with
fellow classmates, who hear your strife.
Your mother who was not always "there",
your father was gone, and did not care.

You raised yourself, with so much love.
It took alot, like an iron glove, to help
your sisters, one by one, get thru life
and "soar" above.
You didn't falter, nor stop the caring..
even when life was seriously over-bearing!

You could have quit, you could have stopped,
but you didn't, for this YOU ROCK!
I admire you, much more than you know!
You're a great person, a one woman show!!

To a woman in my high school class, and to so many
other students out there like this, who go thru this sort of
"unknown" life..that other students have NO IDEA..that they are
dealing with this day in and day out!
I just wanted to say to this woman, that I admire that you did not quit..that you
helped to raise your sisters..the way that you helped to raise
yourself up...even when I am sure that you did not want to
deal with this sort of pain any longer!!

I hope that your life is a LOT better, and that you and
your families are happier than they used to be!

I was also inspired by the show "My So -Called Life" have been rewatching that show..I got the dvd to the whole show..and I wish that they would have kept that show on t.v.! It was superb!! The actors were perfect..and some of the "teens" in the show, remind me of people that I have known or would have known later in my life! *shakes head*...It's terrible when they get rid of such terrific shows..which can actually do MORE good, than harm, if anything..ya know? For me, it is inspirational..I love the way that the acting is done..and the script is great too! They also picked some fantastic actors for this particular show!! Just my thoughts!
