Wow, I remember my teacher said, "Be the best at what you do."
I wrote this as a senior in high school. It's amazing how many people love this.
I just love your poems - keep writing. You inspire me to keep writing myself.
I lost my sister 9 days ago - she was 33 years old. She was killed in a car accident on January 3, 2021. Her husband is still fighting for his life while I take care of their son, my beautiful 2-year-old nephew. I'm heartbroken. My parents and siblings are having a hard time; we're all having a hard time accepting this tragedy. No words to describe what I'm feeling.
I am in a new school, and I'm so worried about whether or not I'll get a true friend. Thank you for helping me to understasnd the meaning of friendship.
One of my best friends are books. Thanks for this poem, you are a really good poet.
I end up crying whenever I try to pen my story of rape. Today I'm going through a lot of fear, shredding my pain on people who actually love me. I'm afraid to get close to people, for I don't want to go through that again. I've been deaf and blind on people who are trying to show their love to me, for I don't want to hurt them, but I know I can't ever give all of me to them. I get disgusted on male hugs even, the reason why I avoid meeting people as well.
I am Sidra and I'm 13 years old. Two of my friends left school about 5 years ago, and I miss them a lot. Thanks a lot for sharing this poem; it touched my heart. You're a really good poet, keep writing!!
I have no words for this poem...I have to cry.
