This is a poem about my gran parents being proud of me.


When I left school
I did not know, what I wanted to do
so I decided to do any thing
so I studied leisure and tourism at college.


I just wanted to make my gran parents proud of me.


I still did not know what I wanted to do
so I left the leisure and tourism course and decided
to do a music course instead.


I just wanted to make my gran parents proud of me.


Because, I remember one day my granddad telling me
"do something to make me proud of you".
The problem is I did not know, what I wanted to do
when I left school.


I just wanted to make my gran parents proud of me.


So I decided to do a catering course
then I got bored and decided to go into hospitality
working in a bar in a hotel.
Since then I have done a number of jobs from catering to cleaning.


I just wanted to make my gran parents of me.


Until one day my nan said "why did you do music?
it was a waste of time you were never gonna get anywhere doing music".
I wonder why she telling me this now?
when it was too late, she should of told me this
when I was doing the music course.
I didn't like that she let me, make the mistake
first then tell me later
I suppose she just wanted me to learn from my mistakes.


All I wanted to do is make my gran parents proud of me,
by going to college and getting a good job.


But even now, I don't think I have made them
proud of me at all, I feel like I have failed them.
