The Steam

All my life I've been hurt
By somebody that's not even worth,
headaches heart pains and for most the worst
arguments, break-ups that forces me to curse
and say things i don't mean


Of not having a father until I was thirteen
is hidden in the scene that allows me not to scream
but the thoughts in my head makes my heart cold,
And the image of my character allows me to behold


Of knowing my past filling like dirt
I hold my head up and smile
instead of frowning holding my head down
so they can't see the true princess they've crowned

Pain causes hurt
Hurt causes bad things
Bad things causes struggle
And Struggle causes MY STEAM

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
