Look At Me Now

Remember when you told me
A failure I would be
Though I could not feel
What I in life wished?
When you came laughing
Saying that I would never succeed?
When you brought your friends
Saying that I was not in?
Remember when you came running
And threw all mud at me?
When you came behind me in class,
Grabbed my essay
And broke it apart?
Remember when we grew up
And you told me I was too short?
When you told me
I would never be free?
And can you look at me now?
Look at me now
You despicable creature.
Look at me now,
Though I wanted to be a bird
And I learned how to fly.
Look at me now,
Though I wanted to be the wind,
Appeared at your home with a simple whistle
And totally blew it down.
Look at me now,
Though I wanted to be a magician
And I came with a powerful wand.
Look at me now
Though I wanted to be a pirate
And all of your gold stole I.
Look at me now
You despicable creature,
Though you said you wanted a time machine
And then got lost in time.
Look at me now,
Though I told you life is a road
And for not believing me
You chose the wrong path.
Can you look at me now?
Can you look at me and say sorry?
Sorry am I, you despicable,
Though pardon to you
Shall never give I.
Can you look at me now?
Can you come to me bewailing
Telling me to spare your life?
Sorry am I, you despicable,
Though I told you too many times
But you decided instead
To come and laugh out loud.
So if you feel sorry now,
Feel free to come back home
So I can throw you a thunder bolt of Zeus
And laugh along with the ashes of you.

Poem of the Day

poet Helen Hunt Jackson

The month of carnival of all the year,
When Nature lets the wild earth go its way,
And spend whole seasons on a single day.
The spring-time holds her white and purple dear;
