Poem About The Real You

My Name is Leah. I write poems about the emotions I see on your face that no one else can. I'm here for you through my writing. My poetry style is inspired by TwentyOnePilots' amazing lyrical talents. This poem is about a girl lost in society's judgmental views. Her friend sees this and pleads with her to let her help her. In the end her friend introduces her to the Skeleton Clique, a place where she found that her insecurities will never define her, only make her stronger.

When I look at you,
What I see
Is a girl who's scared
Just to be

Herself,
True.
Why is different
So foreign to you?

I've watched you struggle,
Seen you cry,
Stared at your face,
Hope no longer in your eye.

I'm trying to help.
Just let me in.
This kind of fight
You cannot win.

At least
Not alone.
Take my hand,
And we'll go home.

Don't let them say
What they say.
You're stronger than that,
At least I know, anyway.

It's going to be hard.
Just don't give up.
I've seen miracles
Very close up.

This poem is amazing, and this is how I feel every day. Your poem made me realize that I'm not the only one who feels like this. Your poem inspired me, so thank you! At my school we are choosing poems that are the best (in a kind of game-like way). I chose your poem as the best.

I really do appreciate this comment, I'm glad that my poem has touched you. I am truly honored that you thought my poem was the best, so thank you! It's people like who make me write more poems.

The look in her eyes,
Depicts courage
Despite the uncertainty
In the once blue sky.

Days turn to night,
And Greenland turns
To desert.

I have seen kings fallen
And mighty men taken
Captive.

We all live to pay the
Price, when the reaper
Comes for his, but we must
Keep shining like the stars.
