Shelved

Why did you have to stab me with thorns?
It was not my fault that I had been born

I was trying to be a child
And not meaning you harm
But you didn't have to stab me
And try breaking my arm

I looked up to you, all grown, you see
In need of a loving mentor for me
To help me navigate the swells of life
I didn't know how not to cause you strife

Couldn't you see that I loved you?
Couldn't you see that I needed you?

You left me alone to fend for myself
I'll just crawl back up on the shelf

I liked your poem it almost made me cry. and I felt a lot of passion and hurt in this poem. if you like to write rhyming poems you go ahead and write them. it don't matter if someone don't like the rhyming because there are others like myself, who do., I think this was very good and keep up the writing.
