Katelin Taylor

(May 20,1993 / San Diego, Ca)


Like brick through a glass door
I break every time
I shatter, I crumble
I scream and I cry

When china hits concrete
I sweep myself up
No one else is going to
Who cares? Just a cup

Just my heart, just poor Katelin
Who can't seem to learn
That what goes up comes down
My scars are well earned

Won't someone tell her
The stories aren't true?
That fairy tale endings
Don't happen to you?

That once love is lost
It's not coming back?
But I still have hope
There's a reason for that.

My God, He will lead me
And write out my tale
And I'll get the last laugh
There's no way I'll fail.

My day will come soon
Though maybe not now
But I will be happy
This much is my vow.

    I like the positive note of the poem. It exudes self confidence amid a sphere of poignancy.

    Thank you Hazel and Declan :) As for Richard, I think you need to improve your critical thinking skills. I am none of the adjectives you described and if you knew me you would know that I don't pity myself. I do however pity you and your lack of appreciation for poetry. But no hard feelings and thank you for reading. :) (Report) Reply
