You can't tell me
that my writing is wrong.
It might be for you
But for me it will live, forever strong
You can't tell me
that my words are not right.
They might not be prefect
But I'll still put up a fight
You can't tell me
my rhymes are too mix-matched.
Its just because they are not yours
To me they do not lack
You can't tell me
I did not try my best.
Who are you to evaluate?
Its not like its a test
You can't tell me
that I didn't follow a rule.
Creativity has no list
I think you are a fool
You can't tell me
that I didn't emote at all.
How can you tell me what I feel?
Its not like I'm a doll
You cant tell me
everything that I should.
How can you think you know everything?
And think you know whats "good"?
well my LA teacher is kinda pissing me off at the moment. nothing i ever write for her is right.
you have to follow her rules EXACTLY and u get a good mark. all the mainstream kids get by but creativity is almost completely ignored, and i think thats what poetry is all about. being creative with words, being emtotional, being true and yourself. and i get punished for this with grades that i do not deserve. Of course, yes maybe im over reacting, and yes teachers are there to do their job but i feel just so frusterated >:[ so to you now, oh great and powerful LA teacher, i bid you thanks for inspiration. sorry if this rubs people the wrong way but GAHHHHHHHHH

"You Can't Tell Me, aka, DA teenager can’t stand that her teacher is doing her job and whiiiines about it in poetry form."

Quote from tumblr, not from me. Though I do agree with it.

I understand if teachers are trying to follow a ciriculum or something or teach different types of writng (Haiku, Songs etc.) but seriously I think everyone (especially those who are naturally creative) need some breathing room and the opportunity to express themself freely with like a free write in theirown way at some point.:)

This sounds like my old art teacher... all the creative people in the class got low marks, when their art was extraordinary. I understand how you feel.
