Poem about Sadness

Poem About Wanting Things To Be Better

I am 11 years old and I have two best friends. Although they are funny and great, I just feel like they don't understand me. I keep all of my sadness inside, and it's killing me. I can't help dreaming of something I'll never have. I have a very heavy heart and sometimes I just cry and cry and cry...

I Wish, I Dream

Published: April 2015

I wish I could stop crying,
I wish I didn't have to try.
On the outside I'm smiling,
But inside I'm dying,
I wish I didn't yell,
I wish I didn't pretend,
I wish I didn't feel crazy,
I wish I didn't always feel stuck,
I wish I didn't feel different,
I wish I could start over,
I wish I didn't feel so worthless,
I wish I didn't feel empty inside,
I wish I could just let go,
I wish I didn't need help,
I dream of a life, though I know I'll never have it.
I wish, I dream.

My tears are falling. My life is changing. My brother is gone. His life has been taken. I wish he were here. Tears, tears, they fall from your eyes. The only thing you can do is look at the sky.

My smile is fake...
I feel like dying through the darkness...
I try to be brave, but no...
I need friends...but I don't...
I always walk alone...in school and anywhere...
I feel like an invisible girl...

I know what you feel, I am going through the same thing right now. I am 12 and I am also, being disconnected from my best friends.

I like your poem, Isabel! I hope you keep writing and keep dreaming. We all have tough days when it feels like the world is against us, but know that you are a beautiful, valuable, loved young lady. Keep persevering and the right people will find you and help you along. Sometimes you will be alone and that is okay. Enjoy that time and spend it the way that YOU like best, because it becomes a rare treasure to be alone, actually, in the age of technology!
