I have always loved poetry, and even more so, writing it like the things I publish here on this site. Through these poems I do express what I feel, or I write about other people's arrangements. A lot of my inspiration comes from music, and trust me, it's not the same as the song, just lyrics that jump out at me. Hopefully you will all respect my poetry, or at least give me helpful advice. more »

    when i was your age (15) , i had thoughts of suicide and some secret depression. i didn't really want to kill myself-like you say it's not how you 'really feel.' several years later, most of the depression dodged or lifted, and suicidal thoughts no longer recurring, i was clued in on just why those suicidal thoughts came up... ESCAPE. it's not about death so much as it is escaping... needing or wanting something more exciting or challenging or comforting or whatever. glad you've got some talent (and courage to share it) , so you can find that 'perfect escape.' good luck. peace.

Best Poem of Jennifer Ottinger

Can You

Can you protect me
From prying hands?
Can you pick me up
When I fall down?
Can you shield me
From hurtful words?
Is it took much to ask,
Can you hug me?
Can you listen
When I need to talk?
Can you accept me
For how I am?
Even with scars?
Can you assure me
That you’ll always be there?
Can you love me no matter what?
Even with a dysfunctional family?
Not living in perfect conditions?
Looking like hell every day?
Tearstains on my cheeks?
Bruises all over me?
Broken with missing pieces?
Can you still love me?
