Feelings Poem by Teens

Poem: Power Of Words

I am a very emotional person, but I like to hide that side of me, so I shy away from others and like to keep to myself. Even when I have someone to talk to, I can't because I don't think they'll understand this fear of mine. I've been more verbally abused than anything. I say what I want to say through poetry and music.

A Word About Words


Published by Family Friend Poems May 2016 with permission of the Author.

We live and breathe with them every hour.
Some words make us feel sour,
Causing us to glower.
Only words have such power.
They flow through our mind and body like water.

They are there,
In my head,
The ones I've always read.
Words I've never said
But always bottled up instead.

They hide in pairs.
Words show up when no one cares.
In my head, they always compare
What I don't have and what others share.
Don't be fooled, words find ways to become our biggest fear.

They can find our heart and soul.
Some manage to make it whole.
Others leave a scar.
Words are complex,
But they are who we are.
