Adolescence - Poem by Leah Ayliffe

I used to sit on my floor and cry
listening to the radio
thinking about all the people I have never met
the love I will never know
the life of different lives all around the world
tragic or happy
that I will never be.

I used to spend all my hours
consumed by everything and nothing.

I used to spend my hours
wasting time I could have been living, being me.

    This is a very brief poem about a pattern of behavior you long ago transcended: You liberated yourself from whatever inner or outer constraints were holding you back. (Report) Reply

    This is so sad but deep I really like this piece, I know where you are coming from I spent 4 long years working this same job and everyday I felt I was wasting my time and my life so I changed it and found the beauty in life and in myself. Great write you really know how to express emotions and being.10+ (Report) Reply
