What Do You Want From Me
19 July, 2001
author: Rebecca Ditch-Hammack (aka Dreamer)


Who do you think you are?

Drive me crazy and cry me sane
Tell me that my way is wrong and I'm to blame
You call me up and cuss me out
Ask my opinion and then you scream and shout

What do you want from me?
Just what do you want from me?

You say its love then show me pain
Dashing my dreams till my tears are like rain
You pick me up and then push me down
You wonder why I don't want you anywhere around

What do you want from me?
Just what do you want from me?

Judge me guilty when I commit no crime
You think you're holier than thou, so sublime
Read my mind then hear my words
It's your version to the world that is so absurd

What do you want from me?
What do you want from me?

Just Who do you think you are?

Wonderful and powerful

I thought this poem did a wonderful job of expressing outraged emotions. I did not know how else to get ahold of you, rebecca, but please email me back. I would love to use your poem as an example of the Hydraulic theory for my pysch 145 class. Only my professor would see it. Would that be alright?

Kinda sad, but it to reminds me of my dad. To bad that so many on here said the same thing. I think fathers need to get it together, causing some permanent damage here.

Funny that everyone seems to take this as a parent I am speaking of.. In my case it was my bi-polar child.. I am glad so many of you can empathize.

anyone that reads this poem finds a connection

it almost feels that as you were making this, you were dedicating to all of us during our time of pain.
