The Path of Wrong.

By Susan Dang, Denver, CO

The days in my life past by coldly.
As I sit down, I think of things.
This kindness this "friend" used to give me.
I took advantage of it.
I started to get greedier by the moments that come by.
Guilt starts to eat me up.
I run and hide from the truth.
Hurting the person whom keeps me smiling.
I laugh at my wicked side.
Who am I really?
Looking inside the mirror I held in my hand.
Tossing it to the ground with full of frustration.
Seeing only a girl with darkness surrounding her.
Crying to myself...
with no one to help me.
Afraid of many thing.
lost in a world with herself in it.
I tried to find a path to leave.
But in this world there is no escape.
There are only 2 ways to pick.
One is letting go.
While the other is to stay greedy, never letting go...
Being someone who is alone.
But the greedy side of me doesn't want to let go just yet.
Yet the angel side of me does want to.
One night when the first snowflake fell down to the dark ground.
A smile came to my motionless face.
Looking up at the sky I pray before it.
The clear sky shine down on me.
I let out a deep sigh.
Everything lifted before me.
I choice the angel side, to let go.
It may pain me, but greediness is just a sin.
That keep on coming back for more.
It blinded me from the start.
Pulling me in too deep.
Now its time to put it aside.
Step forward and start a new beginning.

The author's comments:
What inspired me to write this piece is because when I was in my high school. I enter a world even I didn't know who I was. I started to become/be something I wasn't. I became afraid of many things and started to hurt those around me to get to points where I don't even know why.

What I hope you all will get is that once you become someone your not, you will soon become someone who lost faith in a lot of things, let it go and become yourself again.
