School Poem

This poem just came from my perception of myself. I really don't know who I am as a person, and to be honest, I'm afraid. Being in high school, you're exposed to so many things, and it is important that you don't let those things define you. Be you!! That's all, even if you don't know who you are yet, just stay strong...just be you.

This poem literally describes me at home and school. Very, very nice that someone else was able to describe these feelings, as I could hardly get out a couple words! Bravo.

Running From Me

©

Published by Family Friend Poems February 2014 with permission of the author.

Painfully aware of all my peers
The pain, the pressure creates real fears

Trying to escape so many eyes and ears
Overthinking so much, my mind is seared

Afraid of the judgment, so my voice has no sound
Dodging harsh eyes, so MY eyes find the ground

This lingering emotion, I cannot define
They say mind over matter, but I say matter over mind

I'm running from something; I jump into my dream
In that happy place, I can be exactly what I seem

I finally understand what this emotion must mean
Because I figured out what I'm running from...

I'm running from me
