Kaitlin Schmidt Poems
Standing still, feet planted Body frozen, mind racing Fear takes over Like another entity
I Am Perfect The Way I Am
The confidence I spent years belittling down To nothing somehow regained its strength. The insecurities I let dictate my happiness I now see Not as imperfections, but perfections that make me me.
A Final Farewell
Tears fall, they just won't end It seems my aching heart will never mend. Any joy inside quickly dies As I realize soon you will depart from my side.
The imaginary power takes over the world, and the people in it. Making minute things important, and important things unnecessary. And so the world turns.
I Want To Want Myself
I want to believe I don't just take up space I want to know that who they see is not a random face I want to know I have a purpose I want to show there is more to me than what is on the surface
My realization has just now begun My life's not about what can't be undone But trying to change the future beginning now And figuring out what my purpose is about
Drowning breathlessly never ending Pounding vacancies with no guarantee A gentle fatality has sweet design Innocently separating with only a graceful tear
The Quiet Girl
She sits all alone. She has so much to say but she doesn't. She has sat in that corner all alone her whole life Watching others carry on with their lives. She watches as each person's emotions change.
Tiny Little Toes
It always makes its way Back into my mind As if leaving is straying And it must be mine
Facing The Evils
The coldness remains outside As you are cared for in the warmth of the shelter. The cold wind blows along with the insecurities of life, Reaching the corners of the world.
Your eyes are heavy Your body is weak Your thoughts are slow And words you can not speak
I fight upstream just to stay afloat Agony and exhaustion come with each stroke. Many times I find myself questioning And the temptation to give up clearly beckoning.
My smile never real Just an easy way to conceal The me underneath Many emotions I feel
The Quiet Girl
She sits all alone. She has so much to say but she doesn't.
She has sat in that corner all alone her whole life
Watching others carry on with their lives.
She watches as each person's emotions change.
She has so much to say but she doesn't.
She listens to each person as they laugh and tell stories
As they cry and comfort each other.
She wants to get up and join in.
