Somethings wrong here,
I spoke loud and clear,
yet no one else heard,
not a single word.

Could this be it?
All that I have?
Can I not fight,
or take a new path?
All that I've done,
and all that I am,
will be forgotten,
without a stand.

I don't want to be caged,
like a bird thats pained.
Let me take wing,
oh please let me sing!

Could this be it?
All that I have?
Can I not fight,
or take a new path?
All that I've done,
and all that I am,
will be forever,
in my hands!

Is this my only choice,
to sit here with no voice?
Quiet and obedient, yet sullen,
my voice long ago stolen.

This is it,
all that I've gained!
I did not stop,
I've made a new day!
All that I've done,
and all that I am,
will be forever,
in my hands!


The author's comments:
This piece is very important me because it was at a time in my life that I felt out of control of my own decisions, and I felt like if I didn't take control soon I would loose what was important to me. So in a way this poem helped me to realize I needed to take a stand for what I believe in!

She wants to die. She wants to disappear, to be remembered no more. She wants so terribly to be forgotten, all her mistakes, all her failures, everything. Her name to be wiped free from all record of existence. Because is it really existing when you’ve got nothing to show for your life?

really good! i can tell you put alot of emotion into this :) 5/5 stars!
