You Can't Have Everything

I gave you my life

Birthed you a child

Surrendered my freedom

Stomped out all my dreams

Wrote off my youth

Said goodbye to old flames

Tried to think how you think

To do as you wish

Married forever

Until one of us dies

I'm keeping one thing,

It's just not my pride.

This poem is definitely raw in emotion and is a common refrain among many. I think it is effective.

this wrings honest. i could just see myself sitting there twisting a tissue going thru each of these things in my head and going between anger and sadness, then feeling that defeat set in. beautiful and raw. cuts deep.
