Can You See Me Now?


Can You See Me Now?

A Poem by TTBoy

I said, “Hi,” when I got home from school

But you didn’t hear me because you

 were on the phone

I needed help with my math homework

But you couldn’t help me because the

 neighbor needed your help

I wanted to try out for the football

 team

But I couldn’t because I had to babysit

 my little brother and sister

I tried to tell you that they were

 picking on me at school

But you didn’t believe me because those

were good kids

I wanted to have a birthday party

But you asked me if I had friends who

 would want to come

I asked you how I could make people like

 Me

The phone rang, and you told me to

wait a minute.  I waited so long I just

fell asleep

I tried to tell you that they were

picking on me at school

When I came home with a bloody nose,

I just said I fell

I tried to tell you that they were all

hitting me in school.  I told somebody

else but they told me to tell you.

I tried to tell you

I just wanted it to stop

I just wanted them to stop…
