I am

I was weak

I was sad

I was alone

I was isolated

I was different

I thought I was fine

I thought I was good

I was niave

I was desperate.

That all changed. I am different Now

I am happy

I am with others

I am good

I am with family

I have friends

I am not alone anymore.


When others talk down to you do you take it?

Or do you chnge what they say?

Why would you allow it to consume you everyday?

Why do you do it?

It's not because it is the right thing to do.

It's because you don't know how to deal with it.


I was so alone and desperate inside.

Yet I longed to play outside with them

I had never allowed others to mend my heart

Yet it was the one thing I needed most in my life.


I had change over the years. I had made my mark

I am young still I still get hurt

I still get scared.

I am proud of who I am

and ashamed of who I was.

One thing I know for Sure that will never change

I leave my heart open

I let the hurt come inside

I do this to rememeber the darkness inside

And the freeing feeling once it is gone.
