destiny tatum

a 15 year old's pain

a burrdan
a cry left un heard
i look in the mirro and see her

i often wish i was not her
this 15 year old girl
tryen to find her place in this lonely world
never knowing what to do with all the words left unsaid

tryen to find who i am deep inside
hopen that one day that i can leave this 15 year old's hurt and pain behind

when you get down to it
i feel left outside
tryen to find my own way tryen so hard not to cry

i feel unwanted
and so much hate inside
i feel like cryen
i feel like im missing the big picture

its hard to feel the way that i am because it seems like no one understands who i am and for that it hurts the most being this 15 year girl that noone seems to understand.

    hunny, im 14, i think that was an amazing poem.
    but, how can i say it?
    im a christian and i am comfortable with myself.
    you just need to be comfortable and
    have faith in YOURSELF
    you are an amazing person,
    there is no one in this world as unique and wonderful as YOU
    dont try to be someone you arent.
    there isnt a parfect picture of beauty in this world,
    not 'a look' that you need to look like.
    be yourself.
    if you read my poems you will understand what i am saying. (Report) Reply

    Being 15 is when you get your first taste of how strange and alien the world actually is as contrasted with how organized and socially conscious it presents itself to be. That won't go away. It's a long and very lonely journey but in the end you will be able to look in the mirror and see a similar image, only a bit older, that's not worth hating anymore when loving it is just that much easier on the heart.

    Ah...I remember the pain of being 15 like it was yesterday. I don't know if this is a poem from your heart because you are going through this now. Or, if it is just a poem expressing something in your past. But, if you are going through it now, I can assure does get better. As for the structure of your poem, I like your unique spelling of words such as 'tryen'. And, I think you expressed the emotion very well. I want to encourage you to keep on writing. Thank you for sharing your poem with us. (Report) Reply
