Biography of Naomi Short
I have been through a hard time, I'm in foster care and have been in care majority of my life, I'm passionate about making a difference to other people's lives. I have faced lots of challenges in all aspects of my life. I like to think I see things on a holistic view.
Poetry and writing have been like my release, it's helped me when I have been through a hard time and feel like giving up. I hope you like my poems! ! !
Naomi Short Poems
Depression, depression just go away, you make my day so gloomy and grey. I just can't deal with how you make me feel, if you go away it would just be ideal!
Bullies, Bullies wake up inside, what would you do if your victim decided to die? You don't understand the pain that you cause, don't you know it can get you in trouble with the law?
Jaime's Leavin Poem
Your such a lovely person, your caring from the heart, youve been there from day one and I have had lots of fun. Youve been there from the very start but now it's time we part.
This Dark Empty Room
Sitting in this dark empty room, looking at the 4 bare walls, when I wake up I listen for the bird that calls.
The Real Her
She walks around the place, with a fake smile upon her face. She looks at her wrists and her cuts are hidden, as she knows that self harming is forbidden.
Why I Write Poetry
I write poetry because it's how I express my thoughts and feelings, I try to write with lots of meaning. I write poems all about life, especially about distress and strife.
Why so people think that self harm is bad? Why do people ask questions about my mum and dad?
When a man and a woman has unconditional love, they bring someone beautiful into this world, pure as a dove.
Being In Foster Care
I've been in care since September the 8th 2003, all because no one can take care of me, not even my mammy or daddy.
Why do people hate people who self harm? It's only a coping method to help us feel calm. It's like an addiction we just can't stop, some of us do but we relapse and go back to it and think oh shit.
What would you do if you were granted 3 wishes? Would you use them to benefit yourself and be selfish? If I had 3 wishes I would.... I'd use them to do good.
My Regrets Of Mental Health
I am selfish just look at me, I don't give my nan and grandad time to themselves because I'm so gutsy, all I think about is me, me, me! !
Believing In Me! !
People wonder why I don't believe in myself, Because I have a low self esteem coz of what people have said to me. Now I look back, I used to be so happy,
You Know My Name And Not My Story
My name is Naomi, you know my name and not my story so why are you judging me! I wish I was someone else I hate the way I am,
Why I Write Poetry
I write poetry because it's how I express my thoughts and feelings,
I try to write with lots of meaning.
I write poems all about life,
especially about distress and strife.
Writing poems is what I do, mainly when I'm feeling down and blue,
I guess it's something I have took to.
It gives me a sense of achievement and pride,
It's the way I let go of the feelings I keep inside.
