My Parents This work has been published in the Teen Ink monthly print magazine.

Andres V., New York, NY By AndresVaamonde, New York, NY

I am irate
With my parents

They are unaware
Of how difficult they have made
For me

They seem to have forgotten the
number one
In a poet's arsenal

They seem to have forgotten
That hundreds of poets have
Their craft purely on
Their deleterious and
Stifling childhoods

It would appear that my parents
Are not in support
Of my poetry because they
Do not provide me with
For my writing
