  1. 21. I Wish I Could Cry

    • By Amanda
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2012

    A poem about wishing you could cry and give in to your emotions when for some reason you can't.

    I just wish I could break down,
    let it all out, finally be found.

    I'm tired of hiding from what hurts;

    A very, very nice poem. Thanks for writing and sharing. Sometimes emotions get buried in the heart and refuse to come out. You remain unaware of these buried emotions whether it's pain, hurt,...

    When she smiles and laughs,
    It no longer sounds hollow,
    For she has learned
    To mask her sorrow.

  3. 23. What Happened?

    • By Mikel Roberson
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2019

    I wrote this a few years ago and just found it today. I added some more onto it. I wrote this when I was in a really deep depression, although I still am. My cousin took her life on 2/16/2017, and since she did, I've been struggling a lot. This poem is really important to me, and I just want to share it with people.

    What happened to me,
    The one I used to be?
    Now, when I look at my reflection,
    I'm filled with recollection

  4. 24. No One Knows Me

    • By Caitlin Glaspell
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2011

    This story is special to me. It is about me and my life.

    No one will ever truly know me.
    How can they when they never even try?
    Because I smile, they assume I am happy.

  5. 25. Tear Stained Cheeks And Bloodshot Eyes

    • By Sabrina
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2008

    My family and friends used to call me an angel. Not for looks, but for the way I could always help someone out of their troubles, and the way that I could always keep a smile on my face. But the other night I couldn't. I realized that I tried my best to help other people with their problems just because I didn't want to deal with my own. I thought the only way I could tell people that was to write a poem. And this is what I came up with.

    The angel lost her grace,
    As mascara ran down her face.
    She forgot love, remembered hate.
    She no longer had her faith.

  6. 26. The Hidden Pain

    • By Abigail S. Williams
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems September 2018

    I feel like I'm alone, like no one understands me. They ask me if I'm fine. I smile and say that I am even though I feel like staying in my room and crying. I have to put on the mask because I know that if I show my true self I'll be rejected.

    The me you see is not the real me.
    This isn't who I wish to be.
    I hide the pain, I hide the strife.
    Honestly, I just want to escape this life.

  7. 27. Pain

    • By Jasmine Knapp
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems November 4, 2021

    This poem is about depression, being forgotten during the pain of depression, and learning when to grow up after you became depressed. The story of this is simple: I was sad, frustrated, angry and more, so I wrote, which I do when I am feeling down. This poured out of the pen and I liked it.

    So many tears no one can see,
    So many people I'm supposed to be.

    So many problems with no one to listen,

  8. 28. Heart Of Ice

    • By Shianne
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2012

    This poem is about sacrifice, moving on, forgetting yet remembering.

    The beat of rain upon the land
    Broken teardrop in my hand
    Shattered remains upon the ground
    My beating heart the only sound

  9. 29. Pain, Heartache, And Loneliness

    • By Tyreka S
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems June 2014

    This poem is about how I feel about the things in my life right now. I wrote this poem because I have been dealing with a lot. Pain of rape and neglect, sorrow and hurt, and I feel there's no one to help me. I try to make things better, but nobody seems to have time, or they just don't understand.

    Slowly I feel myself breaking.
    My knees feel weak; it seems I'm shaking.
    My arms are tired and my legs feel numb.
    My mind in a haywire and I want to run.

  10. 30. Reality

    This poem was written for my best friend Tiauna. The meaning of it was for her to relate. Whenever she writes poems, it touches me in a way that my own poems don't. And the same thing goes for when I write poems.

    Your crimson tears stay flowing,
    But your singing voice stays calm,
    It's like you're catching raindrops,
    They keep their shape while resting in your palms.

  11. 31. Goodbye To You, My "Friend"

    • By Denise Sarion
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2011

    I have a best friend named Jian. We always hang out together. Wherever I go, she goes. Wherever she goes, I go. We were like sisters! But one day Jian started to backstab me. I really couldn't believe her. Now she has other friends. She left me behind with her new popular friends. She forgot that I was the reason she was in that crowd. Now she treats me like a ghost. Like she couldn't even see me. I still hear stories of her backstabbing me, but I still miss her.

    We said we would be friends together until the end.
    You said you would always be my best friend.
    Then you stabbed me in the back.
    Now we've lost everything we had.

    I'm 13 years old. I can only dream that my dad would come back. He was nothing but a lie. He might have loved me at one point, but now why am I alone? My life is poetry. I live every day with purpose. I may never forgive him, and I may never be forgiven. But my life belongs to the Lord, and I won't ever go back.

    You said you loved me
    So why do I feel hated

    You said you cared for me

  14. 34. A Plea For Hurting Teens

    This poem was written to give a voice to the hurting teens who are afraid to use their own. At any moment, we can be standing right next to someone who is completely broken and not even know it. This poem is meant to encourage everyone, both teens and adults, to reach out to those around them.

    I've lied way too many times today.
    I've lied again and again directly to your face.
    I never thought I'd be this way.
    I thought I'd always be okay.

  15. 35. Not Good Enough

    • By Imza
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2009

    No one understands how alone I feel. When you look in my eyes, you might see happiness, but inside, I'm falling apart.

    I help you through hard times, as you do I,
    But you really don't know how much I hide.
    Even though we are the best of friends,
    I really don't think you can understand.

  16. 36. Breaking Down, Giving In, Giving Up

    • By Anonymous
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems October 2012

    Hard times and hard struggles are what happen in life, but sometimes it's just too much to continue.

    I've tried. Time and time again, I've tried.
    To not cut, to not be weak, to not fall into temptations.
    You single-handedly abolished whatever pieces of my heart were left.
    You see the struggles I've been through. You still leave me, like I'm nothing.

  17. 37. Pulsing Pain

    • By Jazmin Hall
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems March 2013

    My mom always promises an open ear and a helping hand, but when it comes down to it, she accuses, assumes, and judges me. She takes everyone else's word before she listens to what I have to say. Today, she went off on me about something that never happened, and suddenly I was fed up. I couldn't take it anymore. Before I did something I was SERIOUSLY going to regret, I grabbed a pen and paper and wrote. This poem only took me five minutes, and it was pure free-write. It helped a little.

    So angry
    The feeling of betrayal
    Suffocating my senses
    A thousand attempts

    Dad, why did you leave me when I needed you so much.

    I have realized now that I'm no daddy's princess.

  19. 39. Scarlet Tears

    • By Coran Darling
    •  Published by Family Friend Poems July 2011

    There was a time in my life where it seemed as if life, or God was playing a cruel game with me: my parents split up again, I gained an eating disorder which almost killed me, I broke up with a partner I had been with for a long time; and it began to make me feel pretty worthless; depression crept in and it soon lead to self harm. Some scars of my past just won't go away and I regret them every day. This poem is about how I felt at that time, and also to let teens know they are never alone.

    Fires ablaze within my eyes,
    A smile concealing all my lies,
    Screaming, begging, calling out,
    A final, frantic, desperate, shout.
