I didnt want to admit it,
It was easier to Lie.
To hide the hurt and emptiness,
To smile instead of cry.
I didnt want to face the fact,
My life is full of pain.
And i long to stop my bleeding heart,
And maybe smile again.
'Cause I feel Oh-So-Forgotten,
So betrayed and so Alone.
Without a trace of forgiveness,
And no soul to call my own.
I didnt want to admit the fact,
I cannot spread my wings.
And my happiness has melted,
Into tears and other things.
Its hard for me to hide the fact,
My wishes have no home.
And return to Anguish,
Bow my head and cry alone.

I wrote this poem when i was in only 7th grade, and that was mostly how i felt last year. Harassed, bullied, ignored...It just hurt me. So i wrote this poem, and that is what inspired me.
