Raised


In the rain and the snow she is all by herself
To her left and her right there is no one else
All that she knows is that once again she has offended
Her life that she knows is what she has pretended
She attacks and gossips to whomever she meets
She has no friends as to them all she lies and cheats
But then we must remember how she was raised
Believing lying and cheating was the greatest praise
Her feelings and emotions have all been diluted
Her actions and beliefs they have been polluted
All that she wanted in life was to be like no other
Sadly she became, just like her mother.

She was taught how to use and also how to lie
She was shown how to cheat and when to cry
Sadly she knows not what is fake or what is real
Now she lives a life without a soul and a will
Never will she keep a pledge or a commitment
In life all she sees is pain and hate and resentment
Now she will walk through her life all alone
She will always judge first and will cast the first stone
Other girls enjoy to laugh and also to joke
She instead curses and enjoys to tease and provoke
She trusts no man whether it be a father or a brother
Sadly she became, just like her mother.

Poem of the Day

poet Alfred Edward Housman

The time you won your town the race
We chaired you through the market-place;
Man and boy stood cheering by,
And home we brought you shoulder-high.
