"Life is about falling. Living is about getting back up."


Why do we always hide away?
We know that to do this we need to stay.
But there seems to be no one who can say
Enough to stop us from running away.

Why do we always stand alone?
We know we are not, know it to the bone.
But there seems to be no one who can loan
The words to make us stop feeling alone.

Why do we always have to fight?
We know that all our dreams lie in sight.
But there seems to be no one who can shine enough light
To make us feel like we don’t have to fight.

I wrote this after sending an email to my guidance counselor that I was very afraid to send, along with my other poem, "Fear".
