Poem About Life

My name is Abigail. I'm 13 years old. I hope my age doesn't keep you from reading. This is just one of the many poems I've written. I know that at such a young age there is so much I don't know about the world. First of all, I've had to grow up much faster than anyone I know due to family circumstances. Second, that's the beauty. I don't know everything about the world. But I want to find out. This sonnet could have many meanings. What does it mean to you?

Stay Or Go?

The days go by, then a month, then a year,
and still through the days I see not a change.
No matter what happens, you still aren't here,
and how you just disappeared is what's strange.

No explanation, no warning, just gone.
I wish I had just some of your courage
to go leave one rainy morning at dawn,
to leave one day without any message.

How I long for somewhere to be renewed
or to just disappear, just not to be,
not to see, not to feel, not to hear you,
the ghost that you are, which I long to be.

But as many days that I want to go,
there are more that I want to stay and know.

I love this poem, and like you, I had to grow up at a young age. A sick parent, being bullied and just life in general. To me this poem expresses the inner struggles with myself; knowing that there are things in life I needed to do, and putting things I wanted to do to "on the back burner." It takes a selfless person to put others first in life, so kudos to you!
