I try to get your attention by climbing
I cry in the hope that you will see me
I throw things to get you to notice me
I know you don’t love me as much as your phone
We could do some painting together
We could read a new book together
We could play on the floor with my toys
We could do so much if you didn’t love your phone so much
Who will be there when I fall
Who will see all those firsts I explore
Who will notice how I learn and grow
Who am I, your child being ignored?
Thank you for reading, here are a couple of other poems I have written.
