21. I, Too
I, too, sing America.
I am the darker brother.
They send me to eat in the kitchen

The wind whistles past my ears.
Closing my eyes, I lose all my fears.
The waves crash into the rocks.
Out here there is no time on my clock.
Life is full of loud shouts of distractions and contradictions while the sound of focus is but a whisper. Nature, fortunately sings this silent tune of focus to ears that would seek her. The...
Sometimes you just have to push yourself just to get out of bed.
You stay up 'til 2am just wishing you were dead.
You ask yourself, "Why can't it be someone else instead?"
You get tired of all the thoughts in your head.
I'm tired of listening to the sound of my tears,
Tired of constantly battling my fears,
Tired of struggling with challenges that continuously reappear.
There’s so much I have built up inside, so much I need to share. I was robbed of everything, and can’t put my thoughts on paper. The man who physically and mentally abused me should be doing...
Who am I, you ask?
I am a lion who comes off as a lamb.
I am an ocean with waves big enough to drown.
I am a roller coaster of emotions.
My face is the place
I hide my pain.
My face is a place
Where raindrops fall hiding the tears that have been there for so many years.
My face is the place that hides my pain.
In all chaotic beauty lies a wounded work of art.
Beautiful but torn, wreaking havoc on my heart.
Camouflaged by insecurities, blinded by it all.
I love the way you sit there and barely notice me at all.
With death being the only certainty of life, life is just a bit too short for regrets.
Let's live while we're alive.
Let's love while we're alive.
Let's live and not just survive.
Light up the way for me.
I'm scared of the dark.
Illuminate the blackest road
With the brightest spark.
This is the truth! I have had my share of life struggles, but my faith has allowed me to overcome my trials. Throughout your battles and rough roads, you have to believe that the light will...
Life and death; without one there cannot be the other.
For some, it's short, but they live it like no other.
For most, it's long, and to be happy they don't ever bother.
Life cannot be lived without the love of others.
I found out last year that my best friend is dying. She's young and a mother to a beautiful little girl. She is smart, beautiful, and full of life. Watching someone I love die slowly has been...
The knot is strong,
The strings are tight.
It won't break loose,
No matter how much I fight.
I was really touched by the poem mam. My good friend's father also died 2 months ago, and I am really trying to do whatever I can. Giving them time, my love and support. But I don't know...
All of my life
I was living in a lie.
It seems that my childhood
has flown right by.
As a child, I grew up without a father, so I know how it feels to be left alone most night because mum had work. When I cried there was no shoulder to cry on. I miss my dad dearly, but I'm...
We try not to,
But we're all listening.
Another update for anyone who is curious. I am going on 21 years of age and as more time passes, I see more and more how my poem fits the world, especially now. In the time since I have made...
Tick tock...tick tock...
Life is counting down on your internal clock.
Memories that feel as if they occurred yesterday
It’s not that we forget to live. We always have this thought in our mind, but the sad reality is that even after knowing how precious our time is and realizing our limited time on earth, all...
It's hard to trust someone who always lied.
It's hard to love someone who made you cry.
It's hard to care when you want to die.
It's hard to believe when you have no pride.
This is LITERALLY the story of my life. Well put!!
I look in the mirror at the beginning of each day,
and ask myself what mask should I place on my face today.
No not the sad one it's too revealing,
Every day everyone wears different masks to cover up their sadness. They put on masks of happiness, and you don’t know what’s in their mind. They cover up everything like their heartbreak....
