I'm glad that my poem made you want to try and want to make things better in your life. I understand exactly what you are going through. I went through something similar, and I know my heart...

My heart flows through this icy land.
Come and take my lonely hand.
Show me how to make things right.
Cry these tears no more tonight.

Sing this sorrowful song into the air.
Try to live without a care.
Look up at the stars in the sky.
Dry those tears from your eye.

Lift your head, bring your smiles back.
Paint your world with color instead of black.
Undo your lies, make them true.
Don't let your anger take over you.

Open your eyes, what do you see?
There's so many things that you could be
If instead of thinking, you actually tried
And forgot about the tears you cried.

You could be living in a world of hope
And letting go, learning how to cope.
With everything life throws your way
And living your fullest every day.

You can force the shadows back to the dark.
Leave without a single scratch or mark.
You can learn to live without your pain,
Without putting yourself through this strain.

You can learn all this if you only realize
It only matters what perfect is in your eyes.

I'm trying my hardest to just let you,
But it's not that easy, this I know.
I'm trying to stop the tears that now fall.
I'm trying to forget ever loving you at all.
I'm trying to pretend I'm not missing you.
I'm trying to wish you miss me too...

This poem is so amazing. It gives me hope. It just goes on to show that it is how you view things that really makes a difference.

Whatever happens in my family, I get blamed for it. I am the one to get all the beatings and scoldings. Being 15, I still find it hard to cope with it. I might be weak or maybe not, but I always end up getting so angry and at last crying in bed. It's so horrible, especially when there is no one by my side. But this poem gave me a new side to look into. Well, I was a person who smiled whatever happened, but I cried when I was alone. But from today onward, I'll make sure to dry my tears, live without care, smile and to paint a colorful world for myself. Thank you, Shianne, for this poem.

I'm glad that my poem made you want to try and want to make things better in your life. I understand exactly what you are going through. I went through something similar, and I know my heart reaches out to you. I hope that life does turn for you. I hope that you wake up and want to smile. I hope that when you are alone, you laugh and you still grin, because life is not about anything, or anyone, but yourself and how you can make yourself happy, how you can encourage yourself to be the best you can, on your terms. You're not here to please anyone, anyone but yourself. Don't ever let people get you down. You are a beautiful person, inside and out. Always remember that.

Hi, my name is Amber Heard. I've been through a lot in my life. I've been through hell and back. I've been through losses in my family, people that I've close with like my adopted mother, my grandfather, and a lot of other people, so I want to thank everyone in my family who has helped me accomplish things in life, my goals, my schooling, and everything else. I also want to thank God for everything he has done for me on this Earth. If it weren't for him, I probably wouldn't be here today. I also want to thank my cousin Tim for not letting me try to kill myself when I was younger. He taught me that life is not always the way you want it to be.
