Poem About Me! ! - Poem by Becky Ginn

I used to know a girl
as strange as can be
she had these warped ideas
that seemed strange to me
she lived in her own world
but no one knew
no one really knew her well
because no one wanted to
she got bullied online
and it took up all her time
she just wanted to be accepted
is that such a crime?
slowly things got better for her
at least things online
she started to grow up
and really it was about time
then she put on a act
and started to make more friends
she just wanted to be popular
and with herself to make ammends
but slowly inside she was rotting away
it was slow, a little more day by day
depression set and she didn't know why
why did she want to cry?
then she contacted all these people
all help organisations
just to release a little
the strange sensations
she kept searching
and no one seemed to care
only a few people online
seemed to want to be there
fifteen is a time of growing up
and I suppose it's true
but did no one tell her
your still suppost to be you
but she didn't want to.
Now she's messed up
and trying to see the light
she doesen't see the point
but she aint going without a fight
she finds solstice in music
it makes her feel okay
like her depression that presses her down
just goes away
she writes poems about how other people feel
she just doesn't know what's real
but she'll keep alive
and keep trying
even though most days
she just feels like dying
she'll tell herself day by day
that no one wants her to stay
but she'll find solstice in music and writing
and then just keep on fighting
fighting herself to keep alive
such a strange thing to do
and all the time wondering
if she really wants to
I have told you about this girl
but how could it be
that really I am talking about me.
