Derryn Whitaker Poems
Don't judge too quickly...
Don't think they can't hear you, Or the nasty things you say, Don't think your words can't hurt them And make them sad throughout the day
Happiness In The Heart
I wake up each morning with a smile on my face. Wondering how I ended up with your grace. Each day I realize just how amazing you are. It didn't take long for you to steal my heart.
You are to blame...
You are the cause You are my pain You are the reason I'm going insane
your not alone...
I knew a girl who liked to draw, She drew pictures that nobody saw, She was more artistic alone at night, In her bathroom out of sight,
If you only really knew me....
If you only really knew me Maybe then you would see That this smile covers up All the pain I feel in me
I twirl as my mood softens my smile is the sun. There is light in my heart and bliss in the air.
Lonely and hurt, Broken I remain Residing in hell, living in pain
Think before you speak...
Just a cut. Just a scratch. 'What's that mark? ' 'It was the cat'.
Would you like to hear a secret, Something I'll bet you never knew, A secret deep inside me, I've been hiding it from you.
A shattered cough, Lost breath, Broken skin, I am Death.
A friend that's always there...
If I could catch a rainbow, I would just for you, And share with you it's beauty on the days you're feeling blue, If I could build a mountain, You could call your very own,
Forgive me for liking you too much, And I'll forgive you for not liking me enough. Forgive me for the loud racing heartbeats of my heart, and I'll forgive you for not hearing it.
Alone I sit...
Alone I sit, buried in this windowless room, face down in a pillow, where my body Lies still while my brain leisurely corrupts my earlier happiness, Overriding it with somber memories of the things I tried so hard to forget. Not one memory's neglected, the tears flow freely from the corner of my
Come over here and talk to me I can help if you're feeling blue I can comfort and soothe your pain Who cares if I'm sad too.

Don't judge too quickly...
Don't think they can't hear you,
Or the nasty things you say,
Don't think your words can't hurt them
And make them sad throughout the day
If you hurt these people on purpose
Then God please help your soul
Because there are few things in this world
So cruel and so low
You may think your life has struggles
that they are just too hard to bare
but try living your entire life
having no-one who really cares
Before you judge a person
in such a cruel way
stop yourself and think about
what you're about to say
You don't know what they've...
