Another "A" Unrecognized


  • Jealousy

    Another "A" Unrecognized

    I got another “A” today…

    The mom let out a sigh

    Well I was going through the mail she said

    And my phone bill is too high.

    The boy stared at his mom in shock

    Not knowing what to say

    Because somehow, for some reason

    He received another unrecognized “A”

    I got an “A” in every class again

    That boy said with cheer

    Your brother has left to France she replied

    He’ll be gone for half the year

    All I, the boy, could think about

    Is Marsha x3

    Because somehow, for some reason

    Nothing is ever about me

    The more “A”s I get, the more they ignore

    I take the liberty to put them on the refrigerator door

    But somehow, for some reason

    They find the need to say, “Why don’t his sisters ever bring home an “A”?

    For that one moment I felt it was all about me

    Compared to feeling like an “A” was no longer a lot.

    Until I sat down to think and realize, they’re not caring about the “A”s I do get, just the one’s my sisters Do Not!

    So now the boy gives himself the praise; that his parents lack

    And decides to stretch his hand over his shoulder, and pat himself on the back

    But now, for every reason he cares nothing about what his parents have to say

    Because he, and Ivy League, and everything else he cares about; will recognize his “A”s

    This is really good. I really like how you ended this, to me it says that you know even if the people you want most to realize something you've done and they don't. You still have yourself and others that will care and praise you for it. I don't know if that's what you intended to say but that's what I got out of it.

    To have great poets there must be great audiences too.
