Hold Me - Poem by Adelaide

There was a girl, who lived a fantasy.
She was terrified, never showing her true self,
just her mask.
Her whole life she lived as a facade.
No one really knew the real her

She would take everything they threw at her and just nod and agree,
She truly believed everything that they said.
It's so sad to see what she used to be like...
smiling a real smile, laughing, being happy...
So many things have changed her, the main one being society.
Telling her that she is 'no good' 'pointless' 'ugly', 'I wish you weren't here'

Society's beliefs are wrong, seriously wrong.
It has made so many people hide their true selves...
it tells us were not beautiful, not special, not worth it...
SO many people take it seriously...
help, help that little girl, so scared and scarred because of society's twisted thoughts

    A totally and intense description of how others treat us throughout life because of their own insecurities and doubts, feeling so bad about themselves that they beat others up with their mouths, telling them lies until they believe it themselves. What a cruel and inhuman way to treat others in life. Love this poem, you have depicted this problem well in your poem. Thank you for sharing. RoseAnn (Report) Reply
