What No-One Told Me - Poem by fallen tears

No-one told me how it would be like
They expected me to not ask questions
And just expected me to understand

No-one told me how I would feel after all of this
I had to stay strong
I couldn't break away
Like I wanted

No-one could have got me ready for what happened
It happened so suddenly
I was so young
I didn't understand
I looked for security and comfort but I just found neglect and rejection.

No-one told me it would be like this

    the journey rushes into us
    whether we're ready or not
    yet somehow the strength
    to go forward wells up in the
    until each step is sure and solid
    a fine poem
