I Wish I Knew... - Poem by Estrella Brummels

I wish I knew how he felt,
I wish I knew a lot of things.
I wish I knew how I felt.

I wish I knew something other than sorrow,
So just maybe I can live through tomorrow.

Maybe I can open my eyes to a new day,
Maybe I can make it be that way.

But I know I cannot.
I know I won't.
I'm just a child.
A foolish girl.

I wish I knew love.
I wish I knew happiness.
I wish I knew some things,
For which I will never know...

    Hi Ella - lovely name - lovely lady - lovely poem. It has structure and elegance - I score you a TEN. V 1 - Echoes the thoughts of all our hearts - I wish I knew. We just have to have faith in God & Our Family and see how things work out. V 2 & 3 illustrate the ups and downs of life 'I wish I knew something other than sorrow - Maybe I can open my eyes to a new day! '. V 4 Hey Ella think of all the things you have learned in the last 12 years - put them into practice - have mega faith in yourself! V 5 Your last line is not a good note to end on - why not change it to:

    SOMEDAY I WILL KNOW EVERYTHING!

    That's what President Obama woud have said at your age and look where he is now - You can do it - Yes you can! Welcome to the lovely Poemhunter family - we all love you and are there for you if you have any questions about poetry or life! Love you in Poetry - JOHN

    Estrella, this is a sensitive expression of a girl approaching young womanhood who is feeling a bit lost. You wrote very nicely about your true feelings so that readers can sense your confusion and unhappiness. You should keep writing poems, you have the knack! (Report) Reply
