Your a fuck up
You´re a fat ass
You,re just like your sisters
YOU´RE NOT MY SON
I didn’t let them get to me
I kept on pushing
I motivated my self
To prove them wrong
Pedro – Those are a lot of intense feelings that you’re sorting through. I’m sorry. That has to be hard. I hope that you are able to move beyond “mad” one day, or turn your anger into motivation to do something super powerful (because you are capable of that). Thank you for sharing your emotions and thoughts!
These feelings are raw, and your poem reflects that your poem cuts deep. I think writing, at least for me, is a soothing outlet for feelings like this, and from what I can see, when you let it out, you let it out really well. This is beautiful and powerful and harsh. It can make the reader sweat and swear and that is the point of all writing: to make the reader and writer feel something. This is so powerful, and I think I can sense that so are you.
I found this piece to be very passionate and get the message across in a very vivid manner. I believe that there is a lot that you are going through and I am sincerely sorry. There is struggle and strife that we all encounter and it is hard to share emotions like this publicly. Thank you for expressing your feelings through an artistic way. Great job.
This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
